Varicose Veins and Spider Veins
Varicose and spider veins are caused by veins that are close to the surface of the skin that have been damaged (by any of numerous possible causes) so that blood no longer flows easily through them. Spider veins are like varicose veins, but they are smaller in diameter and tend to have a reddish/purple color.
At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York, we proudly offer the following skin discoloration treatments:
At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, we combine injections (sclerotherapy) with the use of lasers to treat veins of various sizes. Blue veins are typically treated with sclerotherapy; smaller red ones are often treated with a Nd:YAG or other lasers. Larger varicose veins are often treated with an endovenous laser approach.
