Spider Veins Treatment Options

At Capitol Vein & Laser Centers, we evaluate and treat spider veins in the legs, hands and face. We find that sclerotherapy, which involves introducing special medications into the veins using a tiny needle, offers the best results with the least discomfort. Over the years, there has been an evolution in the techniques and medications used for treating these tiny vessels. While saline solution was used many years ago, it was uncomfortable for patients and carried unnecessary risks. Newer FDA approved agents, such as Polidocanol (Asclera), are much safer, much less painful, and give better clinical results. We also use a specialized glycerin compound for the smallest of vessels, and we find this gives excellent results.

Spider Vein Treatments

  • Sclerotherapy is used to help imrove the health and appearance spider veins with very little discomfort.
  • Veinwave / VeinGogh treatments use thermo-coagulation, or microwaves, to help spider veins on the cheek and nose areas disappear.

Spider veins are often caused by hereditary factors, pregnancy or trauma. We cannot prevent new spider veins from forming, but we can very effectively treat what we both see at the time of treatment.
