Spider and varicose veins are relatively common conditions that, in the worst cases, can cause severe pain and discourage sufferers from wearing shorts or skirts. Large juicy painful varicose veins should be evaluated in the context of your entire venous system to check for reflux, incompetent perforators, and other problems treated by vascular surgeons.

Whether your spider veins are the only problem you have, or the leftovers after your deeper problems have been corrected, they can be treated with sclerotherapy.

Choosing Sclerotherapy

Men and women who suffer from spider veins may want to consider treatment with sclerotherapy. Varicose and spider veins can be caused by a number of things, including:

  • Heredity
  • Weight gain
  • Pregnancy
  • Prolonged sitting or standing.
