Spider Vein Injection Information and FAQs as provided by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jonathan Heistein

Spider Veins

Spider veins are usually red or bluish in color, and appear mostly on the legs, but can also be found on the face, or on other parts of the body. They can involve only a small location, or they can be spread over much larger areas. Spider veins usually appear as “web-like” patterns resembling a spider’s web or a burst. They can also be present as shorter, unconnected lines.


Spider Vein Injection Considerations

During your Spider Vein Injection consultation with Jonathan Heistein, M.D., he will answer questions you may have about the procedure or treatment and will discuss any safety concerns related to the surgery.

Treatment for Spider Veins with Sclerotherapy

The procedure involves injecting the spider veins with a solution that causes an irritation in the inner wall of the vein with the resulting collapse of the vein. Spider veins are visible because of blood in the dilated vein. When the vein is collapsed, it no longer carries blood and is therefore, no longer visible.

A single area may have to be injected more than once, depending on the size of the vein, in order to gain the desired results. In any one treatment session, several areas may be injected.

The fading process is gradual with treated veins fading slowly up to several months after the last treatment. Each vein may respond differently. Some will thin and narrow, some will disappear, and some will stay open and need to be reinjected.

No anesthesia is required for spider vein sclerotherapy and support stockings are not generally needed. Normal activities may be resumed immediately, though we recommend the avoidance of sun and the use of sunblock on the treated area.

You can contact us directly with any questions on sclerotherapy. We are happy to answer your questions and schedule a consultation.
