Spider Veins

Spider veins

At Boston Vein Care we see the full spectrum of venous disease from spider veins to varicose veins and venous wounds. Sometimes patients come to us with not knowing that spider veins could be a telltale sign of underlying venous insufficiency. If spider veins are associated with symptoms or have come back after previous treatments, it is important to look for underlying cause and it may not be a mere cosmetic concern.

Spider Veins, or Telltale Sign of Venous Insufficiency?

  • Spider veins associated with leg swelling.
  • Usually associated with leg pain.
  • Can have areas of skin discoloration.
  • Usually associated with itching or bruising.
  • Can lead to complications like wounds or bleeding
  • Mostly not only cosmetic concerns.

Spider vein removal treatments in Boston MA

Spider vein removal is part training, part experience and part art. Spider vein removal is quite a tedious treatment and requires patience and can result in pigmentation, venous matting, even wounds in inexperienced hands. We do not guarantee results but assure our patients our best efforts and it shows in our patient satisfaction.

At Boston Vein Care we treat spider veins either with sclerotherapy or laser spider vein removal treatments. Both are successful and bring good cosmetic results if used appropriately after good consideration to patients skin and vein size.
