Spider veins, also called “telangiectasia,” are clusters of small red, blue, or purple colored capillary veins on the surface of the legs. They are extremely common, affecting around 65% to 75% of adult legs. [1,2] On their own, spider veins are not medically significant. In other words, spider veins do not cause symptoms that necessitate medical treatment, but they are easily treated for aesthetic purposes.
Spider veins are the very first stage of a chronic vein condition called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which is responsible for varicose veins, swelling, and other more severe symptoms if the disease progresses. Spider veins can occur independently other symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency, and they often accompany varicose veins or other skin changes related to vein disease. In rare cases, spider veins may be the only outward sign of more advanced vein problems. [1,2]
Why do Spider Veins Occur?
There is no clinically proven method to prevent spider veins, and new spider veins can form again even if you’ve been treated for spider veins before.
Spider Veins vs. Reticular Veins
Possible relationship between spider veins, reticular veins, and reflux.
Spider Vein Treatment in Visalia, CA
The injection kit and sclerosant formulation are prepared.
A small needle is inserted into the target vein and the sclerosant is injected.
Sclerosant causes vein irritation, dehydration, and destruction immediately.

Vein injections can reliably treat larger and deeper veins than laser treatment. Laser spider vein removal is most effective when veins are small, sparse, and shallow. Typically laser energy will not be effective on veins that are larger than a 30-gauge needle and cannot treat at depths greater than a few millimeters without damaging surrounding tissue.  These limitations are due to the nature of light itself. In general, lasers that penetrate deeper require more energy to eliminate the target vein, but excess energy can also cause non-selective heating of tissue that surrounds the vein. For these reasons, at VIP we prefer vein injections over laser treatment.
Laser treatment may be particularly useful when sclerotherapy is not an option because of needle phobia or an allergy to sclerosants. Laser treatment also provides a lower rate of temporary hyperpigmentation following treatment, which may be favorable to some patients.
