If you have spider veins and want to get rid of them, you have options. Sclerotherapy is often considered the “gold standard” treatment for spider veins. This minimally invasive treatment closes off problem veins to eliminate their appearance. Treating spider veins with sclerotherapy is highly effective and requires little to no discomfort or downtime.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins occur when thin-walled veins just under the skin expand and stretch. This allows blood to become visible, giving them a purple, blue, or red appearance. They often look like webs or tree branches under the surface of the skin. In some cases, spider veins can indicate a more serious venous problem. Dr. Craig Schwartz will diagnose and treat spider veins and any underlying conditions. While spider veins generally cause no symptoms, they may itch or burn. While generally harmless, they may indicate possible underlying venous issues.
