SPIDER VEIN INJECTION

Procedure Description

Spider vein injection reduces the appearance of visible tiny spider-like blood vessels on the skin of the legs. During the surgery, a high concentration saline solution is injected into the small veins, resulting in collapse and diminished visibility.

This procedure does not work well for varicose (raised, rope-like veins) or very fine veins.


Surgery and Recovery
The procedure is performed without anesthetic in the office. There is a stinging sensation with the injections, but this rapidly subsides. The legs are wrapped, and strenuous activity is avoided for 2-3 days, but walking and driving can be resumed immediately. Frequently, multiple treatments are needed to maximize the result.

Please schedule a consultation and examination so we can discuss the risks 
and benefits of this procedure and determine if spider vein surgery is right for you.

Please note, any patient considering cosmetic plastic surgery procedures should be in overall good health and currently a non-smoker.
