Spider veins usually show up as small clusters of thread-like blood vessels on the surface of the skin.  They can occur as a cosmetic issue or may be an early manifestation of a more serious vein problem.  There are many different types of treatments for spider veins, including laser vein removal, spider vein injections, and deeper treatment of underlying venous insufficiency.  Laser vein treatment can be performed within minutes with minimal downtime or recovery.  Another alternative for spider vein treatment is sclerotherapy which uses a specialized medicine to eliminate the vein from the inside.


Saline or saltwater injections have been used for decades for the treatment of spider vein.  They provide effective relief of thread like spider veins on the legs and thighs.  If you have previously undergone spider vein treatment with saline or saltwater injection, you may be a good candidate for retreatment.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian will provide you with details regarding sclerotherapy with hypertonic saline injection.  Please call our office at 310-998-5535.
