Spider Veins Q & A

What are spider veins?

Spider veins form when vessels close to your skin’s surface dilate. They often twist and turn and make a blue or red web-like pattern that gives them the telltale spider-vein name. These type of veins can show up anywhere, but they’re most common on your legs, cheeks, nose, or chin.

Similar to varicose veins, spider veins are due to a malfunction that causes blood to pool up and stretch out the vein walls

Who gets spider veins?

A number of factors make you more susceptible to getting spider veins, including:

  • Heredity
  • The use of birth control pills
  • A history of blood clots
  • Long periods of standing over time
  • Obesity
  • Hormone-replacement therapy
  • Hormones

Women are more prone to develop spider veins because they’re associated with estrogen, a female hormone.

How are spider veins treated?

Usually, spider veins don’t pose a threat. They’re more of a nuisance than a serious health problem. Because they’re so visible on your skin’s surface, you’d like to minimize their bluish, red appearance.

In most cases, you don’t have to have surgery to get rid of spider veins. Dr. Singh and his team of nurses treat you with gentle laser therapy or a popular procedure called sclerotherapy.

What is sclerotherapy?

Dr. Singh has more than 30 years of experience performing general surgery, as well as dozens of other specialized procedures. You’re in great hands with him for this simple outpatient procedure.

He uses a thin needle to release a solution into your spider veins. The active solution used in sclerotherapy makes the blood vessel collapse. Your blood learns to reroute itself to other normal veins deeper under your skin’s surface.

How does laser treatment help with spider veins?

Heat from specialized Cynosure lasers pinpoint your spider veins without affecting nearby tissues. The laser energy destroys the spider veins. Over time, your body absorbs or eliminates the remains and your blood redirects to other vein pathways.
