What is the Best Spider Vein Treatment?

Do you have spider veins in legs? You can identify spider veins based on their distinctive web-like appearance as they form in dense clusters on the surface of your skin. Spider veins are usually harmless, but they can be aesthetically terrible to look at. They look like spider webs on the surface of your skin and they can lead to immense social anxiety.

Even though 50% of all women get spider veins in legs at some point in their lives, everyone still feels extremely self-conscious about it. Most people who get spider veins report that it makes them reclusive as they stop going to events and social gatherings, especially those that require shorts or other apparel that may reveal the spider veins. In some cases, spider veins can also be caused by underlying vein disease, a condition in which your vein valves malfunction and blood accumulates in your leg veins — in this case, spider veins are also physically dangerous.

But you don’t have to suffer from your spider veins anymore. There are a lot of minimally invasive and effective ways to treat spider veins — sclerotherapy being the best spider vein treatment available. In this article, we discuss what causes spider veins and what is the best spider vein treatment.

Which Procedure is Used in the Treatment of Spider Veins? Sclerotherapy

After diagnosis, if it’s found that you only have spider veins without underlying vein disease, then sclerotherapy is the best available minimally invasive spider vein removal procedure.

Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which the vein doctor injects a solution called sclerosant into your surface veins. This solution causes your vein walls to stick to each other, essentially shutting them down. The surface veins turn to scar tissues and eventually dissolve and disappear. Meanwhile, the accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Before we discuss which procedure is used in the treatment of spider veins, it’s important to briefly go over what causes spider veins. In some cases, spider veins are completely superficial and aren’t caused by underlying vein disease. In that case, the vein doctor can treat spider veins by simply removing or collapsing the surface veins.

However, spider veins are sometimes indicative of a deeper problem called chronic venous insufficiency. This is a condition in which your vein valves malfunction, causing blood to flow back down and pool in the leg veins. As blood accumulates in the leg veins, it causes your veins to expand and appear on the surface of the skin in the form of spider veins or varicose veins. In this case, it’s not enough to treat the surface spider veins but the vein doctor also has to treat the underlying venous insufficiency.

Advantages of Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the best spider vein treatment available for the following reasons:

  • Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure.
  • It is always successful and a single sclerotherapy session can reduce the appearance of spider veins by up to 80% within a few weeks.
  • There’s only a negligible risk of side effects.
  • You hardly feel any pain or discomfort.
  • Sclerotherapy is an in-office outpatient procedure so you can leave and resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure.

Cost of Sclerotherapy

According to the national average, a single sclerotherapy session costs around $700.

Sclerotherapy isn’t usually covered by insurance because it’s considered to be a cosmetic procedure. However, if you’re suffering from venous insufficiency, then the vein doctor can use some of the remaining medicine used to treat the diseased saphenous vein for the spider veins as well. In this case, you get the medical and cosmetic benefits as well, and it will be covered by insurance.

What is the Best Foot Varicose Veins Treatment?

Varicose veins are large veins that protrude out of the surface of your skin in the form of dense rope-like knots. Unlike spider veins, varicose veins are always caused by underlying chronic venous insufficiency. As such, varicose vein treatment necessitates the removal or closure of the diseased saphenous vein using the following minimally invasive procedures.

Radiofrequency Ablation Varicose Veins Treatment

Radiofrequency ablation is a varicose veins treatment in which the vein doctor uses heat or thermal energy to irritate the vein walls and ultimately collapse them. This restores blood circulation to the heart.

Endovenous Laser Ablation Varicose Veins Treatment

Endovenous laser ablation is a varicose veins treatment in which the vein doctor channels laser energy into the diseased vein via a catheter and laser fiber. The laser energy immediately collapses the diseased saphenous vein and the accumulated blood moves to healthier veins.

VenaSeal Varicose Veins Treatment

VenaSeal varicose veins treatment is a procedure in which the vein doctor injects a vein glue medicine or medical adhesive into the affected vein, thereby sealing it shut so that the accumulated blood can reroute to healthier veins. This is the simplest varicose veins treatment available, but it’s not yet covered by insurance because it’s still fairly new.
