At VeinInnovations, we offer our patients a variety of state-of-the-art treatments for spider veins. They are all minimally invasive or non-invasive. Most are virtually pain free. We know this is especially important this when working with sensitive facial skin.

What to Expect at VeinInnovations

Often, our vein treatments can be completed in one or two treatments. There is no downtime, and people often go back to work or resume other activities immediately.

For spider veins on the legs, our patients first have an exam, which includes a non-invasive Doppler ultrasound screening to determine the condition of the affected veins. We also obtain a patient’s medical history. Then, we recommend a type of treatment (or a combination of treatments) in consultation with our patients, based on their unique situation.

Here are the most common treatments for facial spider veins.facial spider veins

Sclerotherapy

This treatment has been around for many years. However, it has been improved through the years. It now is virtually painless because the fluid (called sclerosant) is injected into the skin via the tiniest of micro-needles. The sclerosant causes the walls of the veins to become irritated and collapse. In most instances, the spider veins will fade within a week or two. Sometimes this takes longer. The substance used to collapse the vein does cause some itching during treatment, but alcohol gently rubbed onto the area helps the itching stop within about 15 minutes of treatment time. Following treatment, patients recline with their feet up for about 15 minutes.

Laser Treatment

This is another common treatment for spider veins and is widely considered one of the best ways for removing facial spider veins. It involves using thermal energy applied directly to the location of the veins to destroy the damaged veins. They will then disappear on their own.

AccuVein

VeinInnovations has partnered with the makers of AccuVein to be among the first practices in Georgia to use the infrared light to pinpoint areas where medication needs to be applied to remove the spider veins. AccuVein offers faster, more thorough results than any other spider vein treatment available. The vein treatment professionals at VeinInnovations have been using this state-of-the-art tool successfully for several years now, and our patients have seen excellent results.

For many people, spider veins worsen over the summer due to sun exposure. As fall approaches, with the holiday season not too far behind, this is the perfect time to get those unsightly facial spider veins removed.
