Spider Veins

The better way to a better complexion

Spider veins are small blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin. They can occur anywhere on the body, and are sometimes referred to as broken capillaries when they appear on the face. Sometimes confused with varicose veins, which are raised, spider veins are flat on the skin. 


The Dermatology Center uses lasers and a treatment called sclerotherapy to eliminate spider veins. Sclerotherapy requires a series of treatments spaced about 6 weeks apart. The procedure is performed by one of our licensed clinicians. Treatment is simple and relatively painless with no anesthesia or topical ointments needed. A drug solution is inserted into each vein with a very small, thin needle. The solution causes the vessel to shrink.
