Vein Doctor Answers Questions about Spider Vein Removal in NYC

May 25, 2020

spider and varicose vein treatment center

Vein Doctor Discusses Spider Vein Removal in NYC

Spider veins are dense clusters of blood vessels that appear on the surface of the skin. They look like a dense network of spider webs that appear just under the surface of the skin. Even though spider veins don’t seem like a big deal, they may be caused by underlying vein disease, making them dangerous.

Our vein center in Manhattan often gets strange questions about spider vein removal in NYC. People often ask us if they can get rid of spider veins using home remedies like apple cider vinegar, witch hazel, etc. We have even been asked if massage with essential oils can get rid of spider veins. The answer to all of those questions is NO — you can only get rid of spider veins through medical procedures.

In this article, our vein doctor will answer some of the most persistent and important questions about spider vein removal in NYC. We will answer the following questions:

  1. Why do I have spider veins on thighs?
  2. What’s the importance of seeking spider vein treatment in NYC?
  3. What is the best spider vein treatment in NYC?
  4. What is the best varicose veins treatment in Manhattan?
  5. Should I consult the best varicose vein surgeon for spider vein removal?
  6. What are the qualities of the best spider vein doctor?

Why do I have spider veins on thighs?

Spider veins are often caused by an underlying circulatory disorder known as chronic venous insufficiency. Healthy veins have mechanisms called vein valves that act like one-way doors, i.e., they allow blood to flow towards the heart but prevent it from flowing backward due to gravity. Venous insufficiency is a condition in which your vein valves collapse, which causes blood to flow backward and accumulate in your leg veins. Over time, the continued accumulation of blood in leg veins leads to vein dilation and the eventual formation of varicose veins or spider veins on thighs.

Spider veins are dense clusters of blood vessels on the surface of the skin. In this article, our vein doctors answer questions about spider vein removal in NYC.

What’s the importance of seeking spider vein treatment in NYC?

People usually seek spider vein removal in NYC for two reasons — cosmetic and medical.

First, you should seek spider vein treatment in NYC because they’re ugly and hideous. Most people who have spider veins on thighs complain that it leads to severe self-consciousness, which eventually leads to social anxiety.

Second, you should seek spider vein treatment in NYC because it’s potentially caused by vein disease. If your spider veins are symptomatic of vein disease, you will eventually suffer from further complications.

The initial signs and symptoms of vein disease are often benign — restless legs, leg heaviness, leg pain, frequent leg cramps, throbbing leg veins, etc. However, eventually, you will suffer from complications like varicose veins, skin disease, skin discoloration, leg ulcers, and even deep vein thrombosis.

As such, you must get rid of spider veins before vein disease progresses further.

What is the best spider vein treatment in NYC?

Sclerotherapy is widely hailed as the best spider vein treatment in NYC to get rid of spider veins. During the sclerotherapy procedure, the vein doctor will inject a sclerosant solution into the spider veins on thighs. The sclerosant solution will fuse the spider veins’ walls, turning them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body.

A single sclerotherapy session removes up to 70% of the spider veins on thighs. Furthermore, sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that causes no pain or discomfort and concludes within 30 minutes with no downtime.

The only issue is that sclerotherapy only gets rid of spider veins without addressing the underlying vein disease. As such, it’s a cosmetic treatment. If your spider veins are caused by underlying venous insufficiency, the vein center will have to provide varicose veins treatment in Manhattan first.

What is the best varicose veins treatment in Manhattan?

If you have underlying venous insufficiency, your vein doctor or vein center will recommend a varicose veins treatment in Manhattan. The best initially invasive varicose vein treatments are radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal.

During these minimally invasive procedures, the vein doctor will use thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives to seal or collapse the diseased saphenous vein. Once the diseased vein is neutralized, the accumulated blood will flow to healthier veins.

Should I consult the best varicose vein surgeon for spider vein removal?

You should never consult a varicose vein surgeon for spider vein removal. You shouldn’t even consult the best varicose vein surgeon to get rid of spider veins. In the past, the only way to treat vein disease was through vascular surgery. However, surgical procedures are complicated, invasive, and they have a high risk of complications. Compared to that, modern minimally invasive procedures are non-surgical, safe, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime. As such, there’s no need to consult a varicose vein surgeon who provides surgical treatments.

What are the qualities of the best spider vein doctor?

The best spider vein doctor should be board-certified, and they should have an exceptional educational background, having trained at Harvard Medical School or another school of an equally strong standing. Furthermore, the spider vein doctor should also specialize in vascular imaging and the latest minimally invasive spider vein treatment and varicose vein treatments in NYC.

Schedule Personal Consultation with Vein Treatment Center

Vein Treatment Clinic is the best vascular vein center to consult if you have spider veins on thighs or other symptoms of vein disease. Our board-certified vein doctors use Duplex Ultrasound to diagnose the root cause of spider veins to curate the ideal minimally invasive spider vein treatment in NYC.
