Spider Veins Removal Chicago, NW Suburbs & NW Indiana
Chicago Vascular Surgeon & Varicose Vein Specialist Dominic J. Tolitano MD heals vein problems both large and small. The smallest of which are spider veins.
Spider veins are red, blue and purple lines that often appear near the surface of the skin. These small, visible veins may appear alone or in a web-like pattern. Spider veins can appear anywhere on the body, but are commonly seen on the face and legs, especially behind the knees.
While these small varicose veins are generally not cause for concern, they do occasionally result in uncomfortable symptoms like swelling or a feeling of heaviness or achiness in the legs.
Causes of Spider Veins
There are many potential causes of spider veins, including:
- A job that requires excessive standing
- Significant weight gain
- Hormonal fluctuations
Some cardiovascular problems can also cause spider and varicose veins, so it is important to see your doctor to rule out more serious conditions. If you are concerned about your spider veins due to cosmetics or uncomfortable symptoms, we can help you find treatment solutions so you can say goodbye to your spider veins for good.
Sclerotherapy Spider Vein Removal Treatment
This procedure has been around for nearly a century and is still considered one of the most effective ways to treat spider and varicose veins. A saline solution is injected directly into the targeted veins, causing them to collapse and disappear from view. Treatments take between 15-30 minutes and patients can go right back to their normal activities.
