Spider veins are small, dark veins which are visible on the skin’s surface. Often, spider veins may be a sign of vein disease deeper in the leg. It’s wise to have a venous insufficiency evaluation, along with an overall treatment plan, BEFORE beginning to address spider veins.
In most cases, spider veins themselves are easy to treat. Performed in the office, micro-injections of medicine will shut down each small vein. Recovery is minimal and generally requires no down-time.
