Spider veins can be stubborn. No matter what you try, from home remedies to sclerotherapy, spider veins keep coming back. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A.

What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small, unsightly clusters of red or bluish veins that appear on the ankles, calves or thighs. Spider veins mainly affect women, and they can be particularly troublesome when they appear in the legs and ankles. While they rarely cause pain, highly visible or widespread spider veins can be detrimental to a person’s self-confidence, causing you to be embarrassed to show your legs.
Laser Vein Removal
Some patients choose laser vein removal to clear their legs and skin. During a removal treatment, laser waves target hemoglobin, a protein present in veins. The hemoglobin breaks down, and the veins dissipate. Laser vein removal can be used for smaller areas of fine veins and vessels.
Spider veins, or small surface veins on the thighs, calves, and ankles can cause discomfort and mar leg appearance. To remove these dilated and stretched veins, Dr. Kotis performs vein treatment.
After vein treatment, Dr. Kotis will provide patient care instructions. Patients should avoid strenuous activity after their appointment. They may also be given a compression garment to alleviate any possible swelling. After treatment, patients may experience some discomfort near the treatment sites. Symptoms usually subside within a few weeks. Patients may notice clearer looking skin a few weeks after treatment. It is important to note, although vein treatment can eliminate the appearance of veins, it will not prevent new spider veins from forming.
