One of the most innovative treatments for spider veins is known as laser spider vein removal.  In this treatment modality, a short burst of a computer generated laser beam is used to target the small thread like spider veins on the legs and thighs.  Almost all types of spider veins can be treated with laser spider vein removal and recovery is relatively quick.  If the spider veins are diffuse in someone with olive tone or dark toned skin,  pretreatment with a topical cream may be required prior to initiation of the laser treatment.


A second treatment modality for spider veins is known as injection sclerotherapy.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian provides these patients with four different types of vein injections including saline injection, polidocanol, STS, and foam sclerotherapy.  The injection sclerotherapy technique is performed by injecting a small amount of a potent FDA approved medicine into the unwanted spider vein in order to eliminate the vein altogether.  Unlike sclerotherapy of the past, newer types of sclerotherapy agents are less painful and require less time to recovery.
