Vein Doctor Describes the Best Spider Vein Treatment in NYC
May 25, 2020
Sclerotherapy: best spider vein treatment in NYC?
Sclerotherapy is widely hailed as the best spider vein treatment in NYC. In fact, sclerotherapy has been the best spider vein removal method for several decades. A single sclerotherapy spider vein treatment in NYC removes up to 70% of your spider veins within three weeks.
During the sclerotherapy spider vein removal, the vein doctor in New York injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins. Sclerosant fuses the spider veins’ walls, essentially turning them into scar tissues. The accumulated blood in the spider veins flows to healthier veins, thereby restoring smooth blood circulation. Meanwhile, the hardened scar tissues get absorbed by the body and fade away from your skin.
In addition to sclerotherapy, laser vein therapy may also be used to get rid of spider veins. However, you must avoid a vein clinic that provides laser vein therapy as a spider vein removal method. Laser vein therapy is a procedure in which blue light or laser is applied on the surface of your skin to break down the spider veins. However, the procedure is slow and ineffective because you need to return for multiple laser vein spider vein removal sessions before you see any results.
While sclerotherapy gets rid of spider veins, it doesn’t treat the potential vein disease. As such, you should only opt for sclerotherapy if your vein doctor runs a diagnostic test and determines that you don’t have venous insufficiency.

Spider veins are dense clusters of blood vessels on the surface of your skin. As discussed previously, spider veins may or may not be caused by underlying vein disease. Varicose veins, in comparison, are large protruding blood vessels that look like tree trunks. The presence of varicose veins is a strong indication that you have vein disease.
During your personal consultation with the vein clinic, the vein doctor will use Duplex Ultrasound test to determine if you have underlying vein disease. If you don’t have vein disease, they will get rid of spider veins. However, if you have vein disease, they will need to treat venous insufficiency first. Your spider veins will return later if they get rid of spider veins without addressing the underlying venous insufficiency.
As such, the vein doctor will recommend varicose veins treatment in Manhattan. Some of the best minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. During these procedures, the vein doctor will use thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives (respectively) to collapse or fuse the diseased saphenous vein’s walls. The accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins, thus restoring blood circulation to the heart. Meanwhile, the diseased saphenous vein will harden and get absorbed by the body. After the varicose veins treatment, the vein specialist can get rid of spider veins on thighs using sclerotherapy.
Minimally invasive varicose veins treatments are non-surgical, painless, carry a negligible risk of side effects, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime. Most people can resume their daily activity immediately after the spider vein removal procedure. However, you must avoid vascular surgery, even if provided by the best varicose vein surgeon. Varicose vein surgeries have a lower success rate, and they have a higher risk of complications like deep vein thrombosis and infections.
