What are spider veins?
Spider veins are red, blue or even purple-colored veins that run along the skin. They most commonly appear in the legs.
These superficial blood vessels tend to develop very close to the surface of the skin and can become more visible with age, pregnancy or even birth control usage. The good news: these veins don’t pose health problems for most though, in some cases, they may itch or cause a tingling sensation.
Treating spider veins
Spider vein removal can be very effective—and very easy. Because these veins do not serve any specific purpose, there’s no reason to leave them in place. At Zenith, we treat spider veins as a cosmetic procedure, using either laser therapy or an injection method to eliminate unsightly veins. Done right, both approaches are very effective in the short- and long-term.
Spider Vein Sclerotherapy
Our expert team injects a solution into each spider vein. The injection breaks down the vein, causing it to fade until it’s undetectable.
Sclerotherapy injections are very small and most patients report little to no pain. Injected agents work to stop the blood from flowing through the veins, which promotes fading over time.
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
By pairing sclerotherapy with an ultrasound, we can better locate and treat deeper spider veins. We can also treat more spider veins at once, including those you can’t see…yet.
In this treatment approach, an ultrasound technology guides injections, ensuring a more precise solution placement, maximizing effectiveness and minimizing risk.
This form of sclerotherapy works alongside ultrasound-guided methods. Foam sclerotherapy uses a thicker, foam solution which is easier to see using the ultrasound.
