Causes of Spider Veins

Spider veins have a variety of causes including hormones, weight gain, pregnancy, sun exposure, and heredity. While spider veins are different from varicose veins, both conditions can be caused by venous reflux disease. For more complete, lasting spider vein removal, venous reflux disease must first be treated. If venous reflux disease is suspected, we will perform an ultrasound before recommending any spider vein treatments.

Spider Vein Treatments

Our laser-assisted spider vein treatment is a state-of-the-art technology that eliminates the appearance of surface spider veins on the legs. A pinpoint laser light is passed through the skin to selectively target the underlying vein with minimal discomfort. This treatment offers beautiful results that are often immediate with no downtime.

Laser treatment is sometimes complemented by sclerotherapy injections or ambulatory phlebectomy when necessary to completely clear away the unwanted veins.
