Spider veins are smaller and closer to the skin than varicose veins are. They are usually red, blue or purple. If you’re unsure whether or not you have them or want to know how to get rid of spider veins, come into our vein clinic and we can help.
Spider vein treatment is called sclerotherapy (pronounced “sklair-o-therapy”), which is an injection of a solution that irritates the inside walls of the spider veins and causes them to scar closed and fade away.
Show us your spider veins! Come in for a free screening and learn about sclerotherapy.
