Varicose and Spider Veins Varicose veins can be quite unsightly as they begin to clump up and bulge. The good news is the veins on the outside skin surface can often be reduced without harming circulation. Spider veins, the more delicate red or blue webs which can pop up on the skin’s surface, are a minor form of varicose veins and can precede the development of the more unsightly variation. Sun exposure can make spider veins worse by breaking down collagen under the skin. We offer our patients both laser and Sclerotherapy treatments to diminish the look of veins. Treatment Options Sclerotherapy Sclerotherapy improves the look or gets rid of spider veins and smaller varicose veins.
