Spider Vein Treatments
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small webs of veins visible on the surface of the skin. They commonly develop on the legs and face, and can be a blue, red or purple color. They are most often caused by a backup of blood, but can also develop due to sun exposure or energy. Whatever the cause, many people seek out spider vein treatment to eliminate their appearance for cosmetic reasons. At NUSCULPT, we offer sclerotherapy and laser vein treatment for spider veins.
What is Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins?
Sclerotherapy is a proven technique that has been used for spider veins for many years. With sclerotherapy, a solution is injected into the desired veins. This solution causes blood to clot in the vein, preventing further blood flow. Since the blood flow is the cause of their appearance, the vein gradually fades from view after blood flow ceases.
What is Laser Vein Treatment for Spider Veins?
Laser vein treatment is an advanced technique that uses precise laser energy to target the desired veins from the skin’s surface. Like sclerotherapy, this technique causes a clot in the vein that prevents further blood flow. After treatment, the treated vein will gradually fade from view. This is a popular treatment for facial veins, as patients typically like to avoid injections in this area.
What is Used for Spider Vein Facial Treatment?
For facial spider veins, both sclerotherapy and laser vein treatment are appropriate treatments. However, many patients would prefer to avoid sclerotherapy injections into the face since it is a sensitive area. As a result, most patients receive laser vein treatment for spider veins in the face.
What is Used for Spider Leg Vein Treatment?
For spider veins on the leg, both sclerotherapy and laser vein treatment are effective treatment solutions. During your consultation, we will develop a personalized plan to help you achieve the best results possible. At this time, we will recommend the treatment that will be best for your cosmetic goals.
How Much Does Spider Vein Treatment Cost?
The cost of your spider vein treatment will vary depending on the area being treated and the number of treatments necessary to deliver your desired results. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. As a cosmetic procedure, spider vein treatment is not covered by insurance providers. In order to keep this and other treatments affordable for our patients, we offer financing through CareCredit® and accept all major credit cards.
