Spider veins are clusters of red or blue veins that are visible through the skin in the face or as varicose veins in the leg. They are unpleasant to look at, and some people may experience varicose vein pain from these bulging veins in the legs. Fortunately, we can resolve your spider vein problem quickly and easily.

What Are the Causes?

Your veins are designed with a one-way valve to ensure that the blood only flows in one direction. In some cases, especially for the overweight, this valve fails, allowing blood to flow back into the vein. This causes blood to pool in the vein, eventually damaging it and creating that red or blue appearance that is visible through the skin.

What Are the Symptoms?

The main concern about these veins is their appearance. They can be distracting and unattractive. While in some cases they can cause pain, they usually present no other health risk. Nevertheless, they are not useful, and since they are unattractive and sometimes painful, you should remove them.

Sclerotherapy Treatment for Spider Veins in LA

At Refresh Med Spa LA, we have a treatment for spider veins known as sclerotherapy. We inject a special solution into the vein, which ultimately dissolves it, allowing it to be flushed naturally out of your system. That’s all there is to it. Multiple veins will require multiple treatments. If you’re not ready for sclerotherapy, we also have options like our Intense Pulsed Light device, which non-invasively reduces the appearance of spider veins.
