Spider Vein Treatment | NYC Dermatologist

If the appearance of veins on your face, legs, or anywhere else is making you self-conscious, we can help you to feel better by lessening their appearnce. Spider veins and varicose veins are a result of blood not flowing properly within the veins. It stays still, darkens, and makes your veins appear. These darkened veins can be a source of embarrassment and insecurity and, at JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we offer several different spider vein treatments to help you be rid of them. 

If you're interested in getting rid of unsightly spider veins, please call our Manhattan dermatology and cosmetic surgery office today at (888) 610-3133 to schedule your consultation. We serve clients in the Manhattan, NYC and nationwide. 

Causes of Spider Veins

Spider veins occur when little one-way valves within veins wear down and can't push the proper amount of blood through them. There can be other causes of spider veins, including:
  • Heredity
  • Occupations that require prolonged periods of standing or sitting
  • Being overweight
  • Pregnancy
  • Some birth control pills may be a partial cause
  • A history of blood clots

Spider veins are much more common in women and, in some cases, can develop because of certain postmenopausal hormone replacement plans.

Treatment of Spider Veins

Spider veins and varicose veins can be treated in the following ways:

Using a laser to treat your spider veins or varicose veins, we can help the dark color of the stagnant blood to disappear and your spider veins or varicose veins to effectively disappear. You may need more than one treatment depending on the size of your varicose or spider veins and the darkness of the blood within them.

Sclerotherapy is a procedure where our Manhattan dermatologist injects a chemical into your varicose and spider veins. This chemical makes the blood vessel constrict and causes your body to remove them naturally

For the largest or most severe varicose veins, we may recommend a minor surgical procedure known as ambulatory phlebectomy.

If you're interested in receiving treatment for your spider veins, please call Juva Skin & Laser Center in NYC today at (888) 610-3133. Our experienced team can set up a consultation to determine the best way to treat your spider or varicose veins. We serve clients throughout New York including NYC and Manhattan.
