Spider veins also known as “telangiectasia” are tiny broken capillary veins. They lie underneath the surface of the skin and appear blue, red or purple in a web-like or linear pattern.
They are caused by:
- sun exposure
- activities or occupations that require standing for long periods

Treatment for Spider VeinsSpider veins are treated through a process called sclerotherapy. One of our qualified vein providers will inject a concentrated solution into the affected veins using a tiny needle. The solution causes the walls of the vein to collapse onto each other, closing the vein. Sclerotherapy is scheduled in 30 minute sessions and mar require multiple sessions depending on the severity of the vein.
