Before & After Results
Symptoms
Small veins just under the surface of the skin indicate underlying disease.

Spider veins are tiny, thin veins that vary in color and that you can see just under the surface of your skin. They’re so named because they remind us of spider webs, and are also sometimes described as looking like marble.

Spider veins are a mild symptom of varicose veins disease. Aside from an unpleasant appearance, you may experience some discomfort.

Vein Screening
What to Expect During
Your Free Vein Screening

At these screening events, we invite you to come to our office and have an ultra sound. This is a quick 5-minute screening and consultation that helps determine if varicose veins are present.

The screening technician will evaluate two of the main sources of vein disease, the great saphenous vein and the small saphenous vein.
The technician will apply ultrasound gel to the leg, and place the probe on the leg. Then, the veins are evaluated and the patient is informed of any present vein.
After the ultrasound, a doctor or nurse practitioner will meet with you to discuss the ultrasound with you as well as answer any questions you may have about varicose veins.
After your meeting, we will have insurance specialists on hand that can answer questions about insurance coverage and any requirements the insurance may have you meet before treatment.
If you do not have insurance, do not worry, the insurance specialist can go over self-pay options with you.

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions

Varicose veins are enlarged "rope-like" veins — blood vessels — that are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. They can be flesh-colored, dark purple, or blue, and often look like a cluster of grapes. They are commonly found on the back of the calves or the inside of the legs. However, they can form anywhere on the legs, from groin to ankle.

 

Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but they are smaller and closer to the surface of the skin. They are often red or blue, and look like tree branches or spider webs. They can occur anywhere on the legs, and can cover either a very small or very large area of skin. They don't bulge like varicose veins, but are often more noticeable.

Varicose veins result from abnormal inner walls or abnormal valves in these blood vessels. Blood is carried through arteries from the heart to the rest of the body, and returned to the heart through the body's veins, called the venous system. Veins have valves that act as one-way flaps, preventing blood from backing up and pooling. When these one-way valves don't work properly, blood then may flow backwards, causing the veins to dilate (enlarge) and become varicose. The technical terms for this condition are venous reflux or venous insufficiency.

Spider veins can be caused by hormonal changes, sun damage or local injury.  They can also occur as a result of larger underlying varicose veins which are not always visible.  It is important that spider veins are fully investigated using ultrasound to identify the incompetent valves within veins the cause varicose veins, as failure to treat these usually results in early recurrence of spider veins and a poor cosmetic outcome.

Common risk factors for varicose and spider veins include:

  • Increasing age
  • Family history
  • Pregnancy and hormonal changes
  • Obesity
  • Prolonged standing
  • Prior deep venous thrombosis

In many cases, varicose and spider veins cause no symptoms. However, these veins are often unattractive and may become painful. Prolonged sitting or standing tends to make legs with varicose veins feel worse. Some common symptoms of them include:

  • Aching pain
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Leg swelling
  • Easily tired legs
  • Numbness in the legs
  • Leg heaviness
  • Darkening of the skin
  • Rash on the legs
  • Skin ulcers

Self-help measures (conservative therapy) can help ease the pain of varicose veins and may prevent them from getting worse. But if the way they look and feel becomes a concern or if self-help measures are not successful, then it's time to see one of our doctors.



Injection microsclerotherapy is a treatment for spider veins which involves injecting a chemical substance called “sclerosant” using fine needles.  The sclerosant irritates the inner wall of the veins and causes them to become inflamed; the vein walls then stick together and the vein disappears.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS) is a highly specialised procedure for treating advanced varicose veins that are hidden beneath the skin.

 

The procedure is very effective and involves injecting a sclerosant solution into the abnormal veins using ultrasound guidance, causing the vein wall to collapse. The veins dissolve and disappear as the body gradually absorbs them.
