Spider veins are tiny, colored blood vessels underneath the skin's surface. They tend to be blue or purpleish-red in color and most commonly develop on the face and legs. Like varicose veins, spider veins are no longer functional, so there is no harm in their removal
The most common treatment for spider vein removal is Sclerotherapy, a non-surgical process that involves the use of a fine needle to inject a solution directly into the vein, causing it to collapse or turn white.
Laser technology is also used either by itself, or in combination with, sclerotherapy. Generally, laser technology is most effective in the disappearance of small and medium sized spider veins, as larger veins respond best to sclerotherapy.
During an initial consultation, your physician or nurse will determine which treatment is appropriate for your situation. Either method will begin to show results in 2-8 weeks and multiple sessions are usually necessary.
The Annapolis vein staff was fantastic!

The registered nurse who did the procedure was excellent and after the first two procedures, I could see a huge difference. I just completed my third treatment. Yes, I would recommend the procedure to others.

I would definitely recommend it. Such a bummer that I couldn't tag VCA on Facebook and Instagram to show the actual procedure. Again, would have loved to give a shout via Facebook to my awesome nurse who performed my service.
