Spider Veins

Spider veins are small, clustered visible veins that look llike spider webs made of fine red, blue or purple lines. While they can occur elsewhere, spider veins most commonly appear on the thighs, calves or ankles. They often exist with larger varicose veins, a medical condition, but also can be present without medically significant varicosities. Unsightly and embarrassing, spider veins are cause by an increase in pressure.

Spider veins can have a devastating effect.

While spider veins are not typically "medically significant," they often have a dramatic effect on people's lifestyle, self-esteem and well-being. Unattractive and unwanted, spider veins often cause a person to refrain from wearing shorts or bathing suits, avoid certain activities and miss out on social activities to keep from displaying their legs.

 

How are spider veins treated?

At Deak Vein NJ Clinic, Steven T. Deak, MD, uses a combination of methods to treat spider veins. Selecting, combining and effectively administering these treatments require a practiced hand and a deep understanding of the condition and the treatment methods. Here are the methods Dr. Deak uses to help eliminate your unsightly spider veins:

These are small blood vessels near the skin's surface which are actually enlarged capillaries, and appear as unsightly small red, blue, or purple lines or web-like discolorations. Usually less than two millimeters in diameter, they are sometimes raised from the surface of your skin. Some symptoms are pain in the legs, throbbing, itching, cramping and restlessness.
