Be more comfortable in your skin
Spider veins are purple to red, dilated blood vessels typically on the lower extremities. A common condition, they most often occur from an increase in pressure in the veins. This causes the vessel to dilate and can contribute to a proliferation of new vessels. In some cases, there is a deeper network of varicose veins that are contributing to the increase in spider veins. They can cause pain and discomfort, and their appearance can be bothersome for many.
Wearing compression stockings can help reduce the incidence of spider veins and improve circulation. For cosmetic improvement of spider veins, we will first evaluate your vessels to help determine if further evaluation of blood flow is necessary or if a deeper vascular system needs treatment. Cosmetic treatment options include sclerotherapy and laser treatments. We can help determine which treatments are best for you.
