Spider Veins Treatment

Spider VeinsSpider veins are tiny, very superficial veins that occur in clusters or separately. They can become unsightly and most numerous in the thighs and ankles. The cause of spider veins has been attributed to heredity, hormonal influences, trauma and venous reflux.

Treatment of spider veins includes sclerotherapy and / or topical laser treatments, depending upon the location of the spider veins and their size. In addition, if reflux is found in larger veins in the superficial venous system in the region of the spider veins, then treatment of the reflux can aid in keeping the spider veins from coming back after they have been treated.
