Blue Spider Veins Treated in Our Office
Spider veins are thin surface veins that turn blue or red under the strain of venous reflux and affect the appearance of legs where they occur. Spider veins are considered a cosmetic problem, rarely causing physical discomfort, and can be addressed with a variety of minimally invasive techniques.
Often, spider veins are purely a cosmetic issue and are causing a patient to be self-conscious about his or her appearance. These veins present no symptoms such as itching or burning, achiness or heaviness. Under these circumstances, insurance typically considers treatment a non-necessity and does not cover it. We do have financing for spider vein treatment. Symptomatic veins, on the other hand, that do present symptoms, are often covered by insurance.
Spider veins are easily treated depending upon their extent. Many treatment options are available. The most frequently relied upon is sclerotherapy, the injection of a sclerosant to close offending veins. A series of sclerotherapy reliably removes visible spider veins. Another option is saline therapy, which is particularly effective for veins that appear matted and tangled. Dr. Wright and our RNs are highly skilled with sclerotherapy and vein treatment.
