Spider vein treatment is one of many services available at our Huntington area practice. Facial spider veins are small veins that cause redness and uneven skin tone on the cheeks or nose. They are not a medical concern, but more of a cosmetic issue for patients who are unhappy with their appearance. Spider veins are commonly an inherited trait and can be treated in a few different ways.
Treatment options for facial spider veins
In the past, the only way to treat spider veins was with sclerotherapy. This involved injecting a sclerosing solution into the veins that were visible to close the walls of the vessels and redirect blood flow. However, there are ways to treat veins in addition to sclerotherapy, such as vascular laser therapy. Laser therapy is done in a series of treatments. These minimally invasive treatments use a laser to break down the veins until they are no longer visible. The facial spider veins will appear faded over time and gradually, patients will no longer be able to see them.
In some cases, patients may benefit from a combination of sclerotherapy and laser therapy. Sometimes they work best together, and this is determined when patients visit the practice for a consultation and evaluation with Dr. Roger Koreen and his dedicated staff.
