Spider veins can leave nasty marks on your body and can make you feel uncomfortable in your skin. At Colorado Laser and Vein, we understand the irritation and discouragement that comes along with the appearance of spider veins. That is why we want to help restore your confidence in your body with our cutting-edge spider vein treatments!

What causes spider veins to appear?

Spider veins occur when valves in your veins that allow blood to flow back to your heart become defective, causing the blood to flow backward and pool inside the vein. Consequently, the blood vessel walls weaken, which creates a cluster of tiny blood vessels close to the skin’s surface. Certain risk factors that often lead to the potential development of spider veins in people include:

  • A history of blood clots
  • Birth control use
  • Conditions that cause increased abdominal pressure, including constipation, cysts, or tumors
  • Family history of spider veins
  • Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause
  • Jobs such as that of factory workers, hairstylists, nurses, or teachers, which require prolonged periods of standing
  • Obesity
  • Postmenopausal hormonal replacement therapy

Do I have spider veins?

Spider veins are small, red, blue, or purple veins that appear just underneath the surface of the skin and resemble a spider web, which is why they are called spider veins. If you have spider veins, you might experience some discomfort in the affected area, but they are generally not too painful. That said, they should be treated because they could develop into painful varicose veins, and eventually varicose disease. They often appear on the legs, chest, or face.

How long does it take for spider veins to go away after treatment?

Normally, spider veins gradually disappear after treatment. Depending on the extent of your spider veins, they should go away in about two to six weeks following treatment for most methods. However, at Colorado Laser and Vein, our renowned method of procedure removes spider veins instantly!

How are spider veins treated?

There are numerous different options for the removal of spider veins, such as compression stockings, lifestyle change recommendations, sclerotherapy, or laser therapy. At Colorado Laser and Vein, we use a highly effective combination of sclerotherapy and laser therapy. This method is known as the VeinGogh ohmic thermolysis system. This method is safe for use on any part of your body that has spider veins, even your face! It works by heating the vein, which thickens the blood and causes the blood vessel wall to collapse before your eyes, leaving behind flawless skin. Sclerotherapy helps this process, as it works by directly injecting a saline solution into the vein, which irritates the blood vessel lining and causes it to collapse. Overall, this procedure lasts about 30 minutes and is minimally invasive, with only slight discomfort. A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area before the procedure begins to mitigate discomfort, which is akin to the plucking of an eyebrow.
