What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are also known as Telangiectasia. Telangiectasia is a condition in which widened venules (tiny blood vessels) cause threadlike red lines or patterns on the skin. 

Spider veins mainly occur when your blood circulation is poor, and you have prolonged exposure to pressure or standing upright for long periods, like during pregnancy. There’s also a genetic susceptibility that can lead to spider veins, alongside obesity from weight gain.

Fortunately, sclerotherapy is a safe treatment that can help you get rid of spider veins

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that can help get rid of pesky spider veins. Just a couple of 20-minute sclerotherapy sessions with Dr. Vitolo can help you erase these purple or redline-shaped lines from sight for good!

How is Sclerotherapy Performed?

Sclerotherapy is a great non-surgical way to rid yourself of even your most frustrating spider veins. During your sclerotherapy procedure, Dr. Vitolo will use a super-fine needle to inject the saline solution into your spider veins. The injection will cause your closed-up veins to gradually disappear over a few weeks, leaving behind clearer flawless skin. Each treatment lasts between 20 minutes to 1 hour.

Is There Any Downtime?

Am I a Candidate for Sclerotherapy?

The best candidates for sclerotherapy treatments are women and men who want to lessen the appearance of their smooth, red spider veins. Spider veins are usually easy to treat when they’re smooth and visible to the naked eye. Even though anyone can get spider veins, women are often twice as likely to suffer from spider veins than men.
