Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins can detract from your overall appearance and cause you to look older before your time. When this occurs, Dr. Farzaneh will perform a specialized procedure to permanently eliminate unsightly veins, restoring smooth and flawless skin.
What are spider veins?
Spider veins are small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that tend to follow a branching pattern. They commonly appear on the thighs, calves and ankles, and occasionally on the face. In some women, they become noticeable at a young age, but in others they don’t become apparent until much later in life.
Spider veins develop due to a variety of causes, including:
- Hereditary factors
- Hormonal shifts
- Sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time
- Weight fluctuations
What spider vein treatments are available?
At our state-of-the-art TrueCare facilities, Dr. Farzaneh offers two distinct treatment options for the removal of unsightly spider veins. During your initial consultation, he will advise on which of the following options is most appropriate for you:
Sclerotherapy. This tried-and-true treatment option is very effective for larger spider veins. During the 15 to 30 minute procedure, a solution is injected directly into the vein using a very fine needle. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view, eliminating the appearance of the spider vein. Though there is no downtime associated with this procedure, you are advised to wear compression stockings after treatment to further compress the veins and ensure an optimal outcome.
Laser vein treatment. For smaller to medium-sized veins, Dr. Farzaneh uses advanced laser technology to achieve clear and youthful skin. During the very comfortable procedure, strong pulses of light are sent into the vein, causing it to gradually fade and disappear over time. In most cases, patients require multiple sessions to achieve the desired result. There is no downtime associated with this procedure either, however you will need to protect the treatment area from sun exposure.

With that said, anyone who wishes to eliminate unsightly spider veins and achieve clear and vein-free skin is considered to be a candidate for at least one of the treatment options. During your initial consultation, Dr. Farzaneh will advise on whether laser vein treatment or sclerotherapy is most appropriate for you.
