Millions of people — primarily women aged 30–60 — are affected by spider and thread veins. These visibly red, blue, or purple veins generally appear on the thighs, calves, ankles, behind the knees, and on the face. Causes include heredity, childbirth, hormonal changes, weight gain, and prolonged sitting. While these surface veins are part of the larger vascular system, they are generally not essential for circulation.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light)
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a versatile treatment option for a range of skin concerns, including spider veins or other visible blood vessels.

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure that effectively treats small varicose veins and “spider veins.” A sugar solution is injected directly into a vein with a fine needle, causing the lining of the blood vessel to swell and stick together. The vein will eventually collapse and will fade from view. The blood flow from the collapsed vein will then reroute to healthy veins within the leg.Learn More
