What is a spider vein doctor called?

Doctors who specialize in the treatment of veins are typically called vascular specialists or phlebologists. These are doctors who have undergone specialized education and training in order to attain an in-depth understanding of the human vascular system and how it works, so they can more effectively diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions including varicose veins, lymphedema, and spider veins. Vascular specialists can provide effective treatment not only for primarily aesthetic spider vein concerns, but for vein conditions that can drastically impact your overall health and well-being.

Do spider veins go away?

It is possible in certain cases that your spider veins will disappear on their own, though this is incredibly rare. Spider veins that go away without treatment are typically only those caused by taking certain medications or those that occur in women as a result of pregnancy. In general, if you have developed spider veins, you will require targeted treatment in order to get rid of them. Some of the most popular treatments your vascular specialist might recommend laser therapy and sclerotherapy designed to destroy malfunctioning veins. Topical removal creams you may see in stores or on television are not effective treatments for spider veins.

What kind of doctor treats spider veins?

While a number of different providers can offer some level of diagnosis or treatment for veins, it is important to make sure you find a doctor who specializes in providing the type of care you need when looking for a doctor. If you live in Centennial, CO and are seeking treatment for spider veins, finding a trusted and experienced vascular specialist is essential to ensuring you can access the high-quality vein treatments you need to rid yourself of unsightly veins without complication. While it is true that dermatologists, primary care physicians, and even providers at some med spas will claim to offer spider vein treatments, only a doctor who has dedicated themselves to the health of their patients’ vascular system can provide you with the important information you need to decide on an appropriate treatment course for your vein condition.

How do I get rid of spider veins?

The two primary treatments for spider veins include sclerotherapy and laser treatments. Sclerotherapy has been used for many years to effectively remove both spider and varicose veins by injecting a solution directly into the vein that will cause it to scar, close, and collapse. This will force the blood to reroute through healthier veins and allow the spider veins to slowly fade away. Sclerotherapy is a proven and effective treatment option for spider veins on many parts of the body. Laser treatments will send intense bursts of light that penetrate the skin to target your spider veins. Laser technology is constantly improving, gradually providing patients with increasingly better treatment outcomes. Laser therapy may not be suitable for especially large spider veins, but can be especially useful for patients with facial veins they wish to target.
