Treatments for Spider Veins and Varicose Veins

Are you searching for effective Spider Vein Treatment?  First let’s explore what spider veins and varicose veins are.  Spider veins (also called telangiectasias) are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They are often red, blue, or purple; and they have the appearance of a spiderweb. They are commonly found on the face and legs, whereas, varicose veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn. They usually develop in the legs and can be seen through the skin. Spider veins are smaller, red, purple, and blue vessels that are also twisted and turning.

Varicose veins, in particular, can become very painful if left untreated. In fact, they can become so painful that they can limit your ability to walk or to perform other activities. One of the biggest misunderstandings about varicose veins is that the pain of untreated veins can be much worse than the pain of treatment. Varicose veins can cause serious health complications like clotting. It is important to have them treated, even if they are not currently causing pain.

But some people still feel that the treatment for those veins would be worse. This couldn’t be farther from the truth.


The latest treatment for varicose and spider veins involves the minimally invasive use of injections or lasers. In some cases, a laser seals off the vein and prevent the blood from flowing back into it and pooling there. In other cases, a special solution is injected into the vein to seal it off and prevent blood from gathering.

Typically, the laser occurs for larger veins, like varicose veins. The special solution is for smaller veins, like spider veins. However, the vein specialist will determine the best treatment for each patient.  

Neither procedure requires an incision, making our Spider Vein Treatment non0invasive. Both procedures may be on an out-patient basis and in a very short time. Most patients need very little recovery time, if any. They are able to carry on with most of their activities as usual.


You may not worry about the pain of the vein treatment itself but about the pain to your pocketbook. In some cases, insurance will cover the treatments, if you are experiencing severe pain or have limited mobility. You will have to talk with your doctor about the diagnosis and how that might impact your insurance coverage.

Even if your insurance does not cover the treatment, you can find affordable options. Many providers offer affordable treatment plans, as well as financing options for the treatments.
