Spider veins

Spider veins are small, line shaped and clustery vein dilations, mostly on the lower or upper part of the leg and predominantly occurring in women.

Spider veins can be removed with a ‘micro-sclerotherapy’ treatment (sclerosing). This treatment involves the injection of a mild sclerosing agent into or near the spider vein which should cause the agglutination of the wall of the vein (also see phlebology / spider veins). The smallest spider veins, or the parts of the vessels that remain after sclerosing, are well suited to the application of a laser treatment.

    10-60 minutes
