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.

Nonsurgical solutions for the face and body

While plastic surgery is a tried-and-true method of addressing concerns on the face and body, not everyone is the ideal candidate for these types of treatments. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, our professionals can evaluate a patient to see if they are potential candidates for a number of our nonsurgical approaches available at our facility. Below are just a few of the ways Hattiesburg, MS area patients can address concerns of the face and body without having to go “under the knife:” 

  • Cosmetic injectables – our practice offers a variety of cosmetic injectables that can be used to restore a youthful appearance to the face, including Botox. Botox, fillers, and collagen stimulates provide results that can last several months before reinjection is needed to maintain the improvements.
  • Vanquish – patients with extra, stubborn fat accumulating in the midsection can ask our team about Vanquish, a nonsurgical way to address fat cells without liposuction.
  • Laser hair removal – unwanted hair on the face and body can be expensive and timely to manage over the years. Instead, we encourage patients who want permanent reduction or removal to learn about the advantages of laser hair removal.
  • Laser skin peels – our plastic surgeons also use laser light to penetrate deep into the skin to repair sun damage and turn back time by reducing the definition of fine lines and wrinkles. The results from these therapies are dramatic, though they do require downtime.
  • Laser tattoo removal – unwanted tattoos can be reduced and even eliminated with several treatments of laser tattoo removal.
  • BodyTite/FaceTite – radiofrequency energy is used in many medical practices to penetrate into the skin and address several concerns. Our practice offers both BodyTite and FaceTite to address unwanted fat and skin laxity without surgery.

Nonsurgical options available at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg

While the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg often provides cosmetic surgical procedures, they also offer a line of various nonsurgical treatments as well. Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot walk patients through the procedures that can be performed without surgery to achieve better body contours, healthier skin, or a more youthful appearance. Below are just a few of the more common nonsurgical solutions available at our practice:

  • Cosmetic injectables – fine lines and wrinkles don’t always require a facelift to achieve results. Instead, patients can visit our practice for cosmetic injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers to smooth these imperfections for several months at a time.
  • Vanquish – Vanquish is a procedure that can reduce the appearance of love handles, muffin tops, thick thighs and excess fat in the abdomen without liposuction. This treatment is great for patients who have stubborn areas of fat deposits that are not responsive with traditional lifestyle changes such as increased exercise and changes in diet.
  • Laser hair removal – unwanted hair on the face and body can be permanently reduced or removed with the laser technology available in our practice. Patients can treat facial hair, underarm hair, the legs, or the bikini line using laser light energy to damage hair follicles and stop growth.
  • Laser skin peels – poor skin texture and tone can be corrected with certain peels, including laser skin peels. This laser treatment rejuvenates and resurfaces the skin for a more youthful appearance and even complexion.
  • Laser tattoo removal – unwanted tattoos can be faded from the skin with several laser treatments at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg. Patients can remove dark, high-quality inks from the skin with this treatment to eliminate a tattoo or prepare it for coverup.
  • FaceTite and BodyTite – radiofrequency energy can be used to improve body contours and tighten the facial skin with both of these treatments.
