    What Are Spider Veins?

    Damaged or broken superficial veins beneath your skin are known as spider veins. These damaged veins appear blueish, purple or reddish. Spider veins mostly are a cosmetic nuisance, affecting just the appearance of your skin, but they can lead to more serious vein complications if left untreated.

    Spider veins form because of damage to the valves in the vein. The one-way valves in your blood vessels ensure blood flows in a single direction, back toward the heart. Malfunctioning valves increase pressure on the vein walls, which leads, eventually, to the vein breaking down.

    While spider veins aren’t painful, you can’t ignore them because that can lead to complications, such as venous insufficiency. At the Vein Centers in New York City and in New Jersey, vein specialists, led by Dr. Jonathan Arad, use laser therapy for spider veins and other advanced methods to treat a wide range of vein conditions.

    What Is Laser Therapy for Spider Veins?

    Laser therapy for spider veins is one of the most effective vein treatments used by doctors today. This is a quick, non-invasive procedure that’s performed at your doctor’s office.

    The process begins with a vein consultation and continues with a series of steps:

    • Your doctor uses a focused beam of light to heat and damage a targeted vein with faulty valves.
    • During this laser light therapy, the walls of the vein absorb the heat, which damages it without affecting the surrounding tissues.
    • Blood reroutes to other healthy superficial veins.
    • Your body gradually reabsorbs the destroyed vein.
    • You may need more than one session to effectively destroy the affected vein.
    • The spider vein gradually fades as it gets reabsorbed.

    The procedure requires the expertise of a vein specialist. At the Vein Care Center, a board-certified surgeon specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins, spider veins and other vein conditions performs the technique.

    What’s Involved in this Spider Vein Treatment?

    After getting an accurate diagnosis, your doctor discusses how to get rid of spider veins using a variety of interventional treatment options. If your doctor recommends laser spider vein treatment, you get the most advanced treatment.

    The spider vein laser treatment procedure includes:

    • A review of your medical history to determine if there’s a family history of varicose veins or spider veins
    • A physical examination of the affected veins
    • A vein consultation, which includes a discussion of your expectations, potential side effects and outcomes of the procedure
    • Recommendations to avoid sunbathing, anti-inflammatory drugs and other products that increase the chance of bleeding
    • Identifying the treatment site
    • Protecting your eyes with goggles, especially when the spider veins are on your face
    • Placing the laser device on your skin to send the light beam into the affected vein or veins

    You may experience some discomfort, as the laser machine heats up, but it’s only temporary. This is a safe, non-invasive procedure with a low risk of complications, which are greatly minimized when you trust the experts at the Vein Care Center. Your vein doctor monitors your condition after the spider veins removal procedure. Using laser therapy, there’s no downtime, so you can immediately return to your normal routines.
