Spider Veins: Expert Treatment for Optimal Results
Spider veins are tiny blue and red clusters of veins on the legs, chest or face and can be one of the earliest signs of a problem developing in the deeper veins below the skin’s surface. When treated early, these dilated blood vessels remain a cosmetic problem only. However, in some cases, itching or stinging can occur.
Unfortunately, once you’ve developed spider veins, they won’t disappear on their own and are likely to multiply without treatment. And when it comes to vein treatment, expertise and experience matter.
Understanding your vein problem with unsurpassed diagnostic capability.
Our doctors will evaluate your vein health before recommending the most appropriate treatment option for your body, lifestyle and budget. In some cases, spider veins can be related to medically significant venous insufficiency, but they are usually cosmetic in nature. With in-house vascular diagnostics that have earned national accreditation, we can make that determination with the medical accuracy and authority the Wilmington medical community has come to trust.
Making spider veins “disappear” with sclerotherapy.
At The Vein Center at Wilmington Surgical Specialists, we offer the most innovative and pain-free treatment for spider veins, called sclerotherapy. With experienced precision, and often guided by ultrasound, our vein specialists inject a sclerosing agent into spider veins with an extremely fine needle. This causes the spider veins to close down… and no longer be visible.
Take control of your spider veins.
In many situations, you can control the effects and growth of spider veins with minor interventions and a change in lifestyle.
- Wear compression stockings to support your lower legs.
- Maintain a healthy weight. Excess weight will stress your blood circulation.
- Exercise regularly and include cardio-based workouts.
- Wear low-heeled shoes to avoid putting unneeded stress on your circulation.
