What Is Involved in Spider Vein Treatment?

The,Concept,Of,Varicose,Disease,And,Cosmetology.,The,Woman,Sits Have you ever observed that certain veins are easily visible beneath the skin’s surface? It is common to occasionally notice the presence of blue, purple, or red veins in your legs or ankles. However, if you consistently observe these veins in a prominent manner, you may be experiencing spider veins. Fortunately, the Metropolitan Vascular Institute has the necessary resources and expertise to offer highly effective spider vein treatment. Here’s what you need to know.

What Is Spider Vein Treatment?

Spider veins—also called varicose veins—are clusters of red, blue, and/or purple veins that tend to appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles. They can appear at any age.

Spider veins should always be inspected by a physician. While they are often not serious, they sometimes accompany serious conditions, and your physician can determine that for you.

In cases where they are not serious, they are often treated by one of two processes. At Metropolitan Vascular Institute, our doctors can perform sclerotherapy by injecting a solution into the veins that causes them to collapse. Once they collapse, their appearance fades away. The other technique we use involves endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) to ultimately achieve the same goal.

Why Treat Spider Veins?

Spider vein treatment is often sought after by individuals primarily for cosmetic reasons. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your veins, there are treatment options available that can effectively eliminate their visibility.

Another reason is connected to health. Spider veins have the ability to collapse naturally without any external intervention. However, when such an event occurs, it may result in swelling, bruising, and pain. In certain situations, it can be dangerous. Professional spider vein treatment is highly controlled and does not allow this to happen.
