Spider Veins

Spider veins (also called telangiectasias) are common in both men and women. They are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin, often red, blue, or purple in colour; and have the appearance of a spiderweb. Since women undergo a lot of hormonal changes in their lifetimes, they are more prone to spider veins. It has also been found out that this vein abnormality is hereditary in some cases.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to diagnose spider veins as and when they appear and get spider vein removal done. Such vein disorders get difficult to deal with if they are allowed to grow.

In some cases, spider veins can be cured through regular wearing of support stockings. This may help in reducing the size of existing spider veins and stopping new ones to crop up. If the conventional spider vein removal methods are not successful, our medical practitioners may suggest foam sclerotherapy or laser treatment.

Sclerotherapy is the process of injecting of a chemical solution into an affected area, resulting in collapsing of veins. A patient may feel the region to be tender for a few days. Sclerotherapy often requires multiple sessions.

Laser spider vein removal option involves directing pulses from a laser light to the spider veins, resulting in minute blood clots. Our experts would be able to suggest the best solution for you, depending on your situation

At Manchester Vein Clinic we have a Norseld laser which specifically targets small blood vessels for the treatment of spider veins, facial veins and other vascular lesions.
