What is the Best Spider Vein Treatment? How to Find the Best Spider Vein Doctor?

What is the Best Spider Vein Treatment?

Sclerotherapy is the best spider vein treatment on the market. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can drastically reduce the appearance of spider veins on your skin. However, sclerotherapy isn’t suitable for everyone with spider veins.

In this article, we discuss what causes spider veins, what the best spider vein treatment is, and how to find the best spider vein doctor.

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins affect at least 50% of all women and 30% of all men at some point in their lives. Spider veins are blood vessels with accumulated blood. They look like a dense cluster of red blood vessels on the surface of your skin, generally visible on the legs or thighs. These blood vessels often look like a cluster of spider webs or slender tree branches.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins may or may not be caused by an underlying circulatory disorder known as chronic venous insufficiency.

If your spider veins aren’t caused by vein disease, then they’re simply a cosmetic issue. You should still get them treated, but mostly because spider veins can lead to immense self-consciousness and social anxiety. People with spider veins don’t feel comfortable going out to beaches or going out during summers at all. Over time, social isolation can also lead to mental health issues.

However, if your spider veins are caused by vein disease, you need to seek treatment immediately. Venous insufficiency is a serious condition in which your vein valves collapse, which causes blood to pool in your leg veins, which leads to spider veins and varicose veins. Over time, if left untreated, vein disease can also lead to problems like leg ulcers, skin disease, skin discoloration, and deep vein thrombosis.

However, there’s no need to fret. Whether your spider veins are caused by vein disease or not, there’s a simple solution — visit a spider veins specialist.

The best spider vein clinics will run some diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of spider veins, and then treat them using the latest minimally invasive procedures. Please continue reading for a detailed discussion of the varicose spider veins and varicose veins treatments.

What is Sclerotherapy Spider Vein Removal?

Sclerotherapy is the best spider vein removal treatment available.

Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which the vein doctor will inject sclerosant medicine into the spider veins. This medicine will fuse the vein walls, turning them into scar tissues. The accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins, and the diseased spider veins will gradually get absorbed by the body and disappear.

Sclerotherapy is the best spider vein treatment because it’s minimally-invasive, non-surgical, causes minimal pain or discomfort, and concludes within 30 minutes with no downtime. Furthermore, sclerotherapy comes with negligible risk factors, which makes it one of the safest options.

However, sclerotherapy can only treat spider veins without underlying vein disease. This method will remove the spider veins, but it won’t heal or remove the vein causing the vein disease.

As such, sclerotherapy should be used to treat spider veins without underlying vein disease or treat spider veins after the primary vein disease has been treated.

What are the Best Varicose Veins Treatments?

Radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal are the best spider veins and varicose veins treatments for those suffering from underlying vein disease.

These are also minimally invasive and non-surgical procedures with minimal risk of side effects and complications. However, these procedures destroy or collapse the problematic saphenous vein causing the vein disease, which makes them suitable treatments for venous insufficiency.

During the procedure, the vein doctor will use heat energy (radiofrequency ablation), laser energy (endovenous laser ablation), or a medical adhesive (VenaSeal) to destroy or fuse the diseased saphenous vein. Once the problematic vein is destroyed, the accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

After the varicose veins treatment, the vein doctor may also offer sclerotherapy to remove the remaining spider veins.

Do Spider Veins Go Away with Weight Loss?

Obesity can increase your risk of spider veins and vein disease.

However, once you have spider veins, weight loss won’t make them go away. Once you have spider veins, the only way to get rid of them is through one of the aforementioned minimally invasive medical procedures.

However, you can follow these tips to control the spider veins:

  • Wear compression stockings that apply pressure on your veins, facilitating blood circulation to the heart.
  • Run, swim, or cycle regularly because that will also facilitate blood circulation.
  • Don’t sit or stand still for long stretches of time. When you sit, elevate your legs to ensure blood flows towards your heart.

How to Find the Best Spider Veins Doctor?

The following are some tips on how to find the best spider veins doctor:

  • Look for board-certified doctors who have completed their residencies and fellowships.
  • Find vein doctors who have graduated from an excellent medical school.
  • Find vein doctors who have received formal recognition from the American Board of Venous Medicine.
  • Look for vein doctors who specialize in vascular imaging, which is crucial in the diagnosis of vein disease.
  • They should operate from a state-of-the-art vein clinic.
  • The vein doctor should only offer minimally invasive vein treatments like sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal.
  • Finally, the spider vein doctor should be friendly, kind, and compassionate.
