Treating Spider Veins in Hudson Valley Patients
Spider veins are a very common occurrence, resulting in web-like lines on the legs or face. These lines are caused by dilated small blood vessels just under the skin and are often blue, purple, or red in color. Spider veins can be caused by many factors including heredity, standing for long periods on the job, pregnancy, obesity, and more. Whatever the cause, these dilated capillaries are often unsightly and may even be accompanied by pain, leaving many sufferers searching for a solution.

If you have questions about how we can help the appearance of your spider veins, or if you’d like to schedule an appointment, please call us today.
Our Spider Vein Treatments
At Hudson Valley Vein Center, we provide options to help you treat spider veins at our Hudson Valley center. Before beginning any sort of treatment, you’ll start with a consultation with our physician, who will take a look at the affected area and discuss your issues and concerns with your spider veins. We’ll then help you decide which option is best for you or determine if a combination of both is appropriate.
We Offer Two Treatments for Spider Veins:
This treatment uses a special solution that is injected directly into the vein, causing it to shrink. This forces the blood that would normally flow through this vein to reroute to larger, healthier veins. The shrunken vein is then absorbed into nearby tissue and fades, eliminating the appearance of the discolored lines on the surface of the skin.
This can also be used to treat spider veins, as skin care professionals can direct powerful laser light at the affected veins. The light effectively destroys the vein without damaging the skin or other tissue. Though some veins may disappear immediately after treatment, it may take 1 to 3 months to see full results. Some patients require multiple sessions to achieve optimal clearing of the skin.
