How Can I Get Rid of Spider Veins on My Legs?

Do you have spider veins on your legs?

Maybe they slowly formed over the years, or perhaps you only noticed them after your last pregnancy. No matter what caused your spider veins (and we’ll talk about that in a bit), one thing is true: spider veins can make anyone feel self-conscious about how their legs look.

That’s why we’re here with a comprehensive answer to this popular question: “How can I get rid of spider veins on my legs?”

What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal changes
  • Aging
  • Standing or sitting for too long
  • Genetics

How Can I Get Rid of Spider Veins?

Here at New York Skin & Vein Centers, we make getting rid of spider veins our business. That’s why we offer the following treatments to help get rid of spider veins on your legs:

  • Sclerotherapy: This treatment uses a special saline solution to close up spider vein walls. This causes the vein to die (don’t worry, it’s harmless!) and become absorbed by surrounding healthy tissue. Over time, the spider vein disappears, leaving behind clearer skin.
  • 1064 Nd:Yag Laser Treatments: If you’re not a good candidate for sclerotherapy, you may see better results with laser vein removal treatments. This procedure uses laser energy to target offending spider veins and seal them shut. Like with sclerotherapy, the vein eventually disappears as it’s absorbed by surrounding tissue.
