What treatments are available for spider veins?

Before your treatment for spider veins in Cortlandt Manor & Roslyn Heights NY at NYBG Veins, you will undergo an examination with the doctor to determine the best treatment plan for your condition. There are several treatments available for spider veins, including

  • Laser therapy uses high-intensity light to heat the vein and eventually collapse it. 
  • Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the vein that irritates the walls of the vein, causing it to collapse. 
  • Surgery: in some cases, spider veins must be removed using small incisions. 

All three treatments are effective in reducing the appearance of spider veins. If you are bothered by the appearance of your spider veins, contact us today for a consultation.
