What Is the Most Effective Treatment for Spider Veins?

Spider veins are very small, thin veins that often appear on the legs and face. They typically look like tiny spider webs or tree branches, hence their name. Spider veins can be blue, purple, or red in color and may vary in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters across. Though they’re most commonly seen on the legs and face, spider veins can appear anywhere on the body. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot can educate you on the methods of treating spider veins effectively.

What Causes the Formation of Spider Veins?

These small blood vessels become more visible when blood pools in them instead of circulating properly. This is usually caused by weakened valves within the vein walls, resulting in increased pressure within the vessel, which causes it to dilate and become visible through the skin. Other factors such as heredity, hormone fluctuations, certain medications, sun exposure, and occupations or activities that require prolonged standing can also contribute to the formation of spider veins.

How Are Spider Veins Treated?

There are two methods available for the treatment of spider veins at our Hattiesburg, MS, area practice:

  • Traditional sclerotherapy injections. This involves the injection of a solution into the affected vein that causes it to collapse and fade away.
  • Laser therapy. This method uses high-intensity light pulses to target and destroy the spider veins, making them less visible over time.

Both treatments are relatively quick and comfortable, with no downtime required afterward. The number of sessions needed depends on how well the veins respond to the selected treatment during the first appointment.
