What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are a common unwanted issue for many patients. The medical term for spider veins is telangiectsias. Spider veins can be multiple colors; red, purple or blue are the most common.
Spider veins itself is not necessarily a condition that requires medical attention. Spider veins however can be an indication of a deeper issue of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) of the lower extremities. This is a vein disorder that causes blood to flow backwards and pool in the legs. If a deeper issue such as CVI is identified, treatment of CVI via ablation or removal will often help prevent or delay additional spider veins from forming.

What Are the Symptoms of Spider Veins?
Spider veins often are unsightly and a cosmetic nuisance. Spider veins usually do not cause pain, swell or bulge. They can occasionally itch and burn. If you have spider veins or notice an increasing number of spider veins, and are experiencing other feelings of discomfort (tired, heavy, achy) or pain, this may be a sign of an underlying chronic venous insufficiency of the legs.
How Are Spider Veins Treated?
Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment of spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment of common spider and small varicose veins without the need of anesthesia. It is used to treat spider veins visible at the surface of the skin. It also applies to treatment of veins that are deeper under the skin surface, which is aided with the use of ultrasound guidance. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a chemical sclerosant directly into the diseased vein, producing a local irritation and ultimately causes the vein to close. The solution can be in a liquid or foam. The sclerosant we use at Precision VIR is the safest and most effective on the market.
The Sclerotherapy treatment session takes around 20-45 minutes. It is an office based procedure that is performed in the comfort and convenience of the Precision VIR office. Usually, 2-3 sessions are necessary, depending on the severity and number of spider veins. Noticeable results are usually achieved 6-8 weeks after treatment. Sclerotherapy is very safe and patients can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
