How to Get Rid of Spider Veins
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we offer two treatment methods for improving spider veins. Depending on the size and number of your problem veins, we may use one treatment or a combination of the two.
Sclerotherapy works on most spider veins, especially those on the legs. During this treatment, your vein specialist injects a sclerosing solution that damages the vein’s walls. The vein collapses, stopping blood flow through the treated vein. Your body will absorb the collapsed vein over time, and blood will redirect itself through other veins.
For the tiniest spider veins, also called telangiectasia, we offer laser spider vein treatment. The laser targets the pigments in these small veins, causing damage to the walls of the vein. The vein collapses, and the body will gradually remove it. A combination of both treatments may work best for some spider veins.
How Effective is Spider Vein Treatment?
Not everyone will see their problem veins disappear entirely. Treated veins will fade significantly and become much less noticeable. Most people see enough improvement to consider the short, painless treatments more than worth it. A combination of treatments may be more effective than either one used alone.
