What Treatments Exist for Spider Veins?

Spider veins look like tiny, wiggly blood vessels under the skin. Sometimes, they appear by themselves, but more often than not, they fan out in clusters on the arms, legs, and face. 

When spider veins show up, they can make you feel self-conscious. Fortunately, you can get several treatments at The Vascular Experts Florida to reduce their appearance or even eliminate them altogether.

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are broken blood vessels beneath the skin that usually appear purple, red, or blue on the surface of the skin. They get their name from the spider’s web-like pattern they create, visible through the skin. 

Spider veins occur when blood pools in blood vessels close to the skin’s surface. Causes include fluctuating hormone levels, obesity, heredity, and trauma. Aging also plays a role. Older people are more likely to develop the condition. 

Spider Vein Treatments

Dr. Lina Vargas and the team at The Vascular Experts Florida offer two treatments for removing spider veins. 

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is one of the most effective ways to remove spider veins. It is a minimally-invasive technique that involves injecting veins with a medication in liquid or foam form that causes them to collapse.  

Dr. Lina Vargas begins the procedure by identifying spider veins showing through to the surface of your skin. She then uses a needle to insert the foam which scars the blood vessel walls. 

Over time, the structures supporting the blood vessels die away. The body then recycles the dead tissue, removing both the spider veins and the pooled blood they contain. Many patients see dramatic results following treatment. There is often no evidence any spider veins were ever there. 

ClearV™

ClearV™ works by selectively heating veins with a laser. This energy causes the blood inside them to coagulate and the vein walls to collapse. The body then recycles the blood vessel walls and remaining blood, just like sclerotherapy.

Benefits of Spider Vein Treatments

The benefits of spider vein treatments with The Vascular Experts Florida are substantial. They include: 

  • No downtime: Both ClearV™ and sclerotherapy are minimally-invasive. Because of this, you can return to your regular schedule immediately after treatment. You don’t need to spend any time in a recovery room. 
  • Quick treatment: Both ClearV™ and sclerotherapy are rapid treatments. ClearV™, for instance, can take as little as 4 – 6 minutes.
  • Tremendous results: Because spider vein treatments rely on the body’s own recycling mechanisms, they are highly effective. Spider veins appear much reduced, and sometimes, they disappear completely. 
  • Body confidence: Spider vein treatments can help you recover your body confidence and feel more youthful.

Am I a Candidate for Spider Vein Treatment?

If you have spider veins, you could be a candidate for ClearV™ or sclerotherapy. ClearV™ is suitable for patients with light skin, but it does not work as well for those with tanned skin or darker tones. Sclerotherapy is suitable for practically all patients, except those with blood clotting disorders.
