SPIDER VEINS ARE SIMILAR TO VARICOSE VEINS, THOUGH SMALLER AND USUALLY MORE EASILY VISIBLE UNDER THE SURFACE OF YOUR SKIN.
These occur when tiny veins congregate below the surface of the skin, causing red, blue or purple discolorations. The name "spider veins" derives from the shape of the discolorations that can resemble spiders, whether they are very small or quite noticeable. Generally the discomfort that follows the appearance of spider veins is purely cosmetic, but occasionally they may cause mild dull discomfort or even a burning sensation.

Benefits of our treatments:
Our treatment process is called sclerotherapy, and it involves having a salt solution injected directly into the affected area causing the problematic veins to collapse and stick together. The vessel eventually turns into scar tissue and fades from view.
The area may be tender for a few days following the treatment, and bruising may occur. The injections can be slightly painful, but generally this pain does not last more than a minute or two. Multiple treatments may be required depending on the severity and location of spider veins present.
