Spider veins are characterized by the small, dark clusters of red or purple veins that branch out from the face or nose in a spider web-like pattern. Although these superficial veins are typically not a medical concern, they can lead to self-consciousness and cause many patients to use makeups or other alternatives to try and cover them up. Fortunately, there are some spider vein treatments available to you.
At Rosen Vein Care, we offer the latest in minimally invasive vein removal technology to create maximum results with little to no downtime. Located in Northbrook, Illinois, Rosen Vein Care is led by Dr. David Ian Rosen.
Spider veins develop as a result of venous insufficiency, or inadequate circulation of the blood. This is a common vascular condition, and there are several factors that can put men and women at risk, including:
Although spider veins can cause aching or cramping, in many cases they are asymptomatic. In either case, we have multiple treatment options at Rosen Vein Care to treat your spider veins safely and completely with a focus on patient comfort.
A quick, comfortable injection of sodium chloride solution is administered directly into the affected veins, causing them to clot and permanently seal off. This process happens without any discomfort to the patient and without any disruption of normal activities, although a daily walking routine may be established by Dr. Rosen in order to maintain good circulation throughout the process. The treated veins are then gradually removed by the body and replaced with healthy tissue.
As spider veins are tiny and nearly impossible to treat using laser ablation or other treatments designed for larger varicose veins, this condition is commonly treated using specially designed lighting. The light targets the pigment in the veins and gently heats them, sealing them off and gradually destroying them. These treatment options are safe for even the most sensitive areas of your face and can be discussed with Dr. Rosen during your consultation to determine which course of treatment is best for you.
Doctor Rosen specializes in the minimally invasive treatment of both spider and varicose veins and takes a patient-centered approach to finding the best treatment option for you. While new spider and varicose veins can develop in the future for those who are at risk, treatment with Dr. Rosen ensures professional results that you can trust.
