Spider veins are blue or blue-purple veins commonly found on the legs. Approximately 1-3mm in size, spider veins are a major cosmetic concern for patients. These dilated veins are thought to occur because of increased pressure in the vein system. This can be due to local factors or due to problems in larger veins. For example, spider veins distributed on the inner leg may be a clue for venous insufficiency of the great saphenous vein.
Dr. Andrew uses various techniques, such as liquid and foam sclerotherapy, ultrasound imaging, and micro-phlebectomy techniques to ensure that your spider veins resolve and give you the confidence to show off those legs again!
