Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are the small areas of blue, purple, or red veins that you may
have on your ankles, thighs or calves.
As a general rule, spider veins appear in a branchlike, spiderlike pattern. The
method we use at Summit Plastic Surgery consists of a series of injections,
which causes the veins to safely collapse and eventually fade.
Every person has a different response to the injections and the number of treatments needed. Occasionally, we have a patient who needs laser treatments on the
spider veins. Most patients improve with spider vein treatments. There is
no down time with these treatments.
People get spider veins for a number of reasons, including: occupations
that require extended periods of time standing on your feet,
pregnancy, heredity, and weight shifts.
