Spider veins and varicose veins are those clusters or webs of red, blue, or purple veins that appear just underneath the skin. Both usually appear on the legs, but they can appear in many different locations, including the face. They have an unsightly appearance and can even be uncomfortable. If you are struggling with the appearance of these veins, we invite you to schedule an appointment at Glendale Dermatology in Queens, NY today.
What Are the Causes?
Spider and varicose veins are broken blood vessels that form when the valve that keeps blood flowing through the vein in one direction becomes faulty. The blood pools in the vein, creating the appearance of spider veins. Once this happens, the veins are useless, so there is no harm in getting rid of them.
How To Treat Spider Veins and Varicose Veins?
We have two main ways of treating your veins at Glendale Dermatology. For veins in the legs, we offer sclerotherapy. This option involves injecting a solution called a sclerosant such as Aethoxysclerol. When injected into the vein it stimulates the body to remove the vein. This is a safe, well-tolerated, fast procedure that can quickly reduce or eliminate leg veins.
For spider veins on the face, we can perform laser treatments, a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that helps create a more even skin tone.
