Spider Veins

In addition to Mesotherapy, Dr. Jeffrey Schorr also specializes in the treatment of veins. One common condition patients ask to treat are Spider Veins. This is a relatively painless treatment that requires no downtime. Dr. Schorr offers this treatment at both Mesotherapie&Estetik and the Greenwich Vein Center.

What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are tiny dilated blood vessels seen in the skin usually on the face and legs. These veins are located just below the surface of the skin and often appear red, blue or purple in color.

Although spider veins may result in itching and minor aches and pains, they are not a health hazard. They are generally considered a cosmetic problem.

What causes Spider Veins?
Spider veins are formed when veins become dilated and swollen from abnormal blood flow. Pregnancy and hormonal variations may stimulate their appearance. Spider veins are more common in women but do occur in men as well.

How are Spider Veins Treated?
Sclerotherapy is generally the treatment of choice for spider veins. When sclerotherapy is performed, a solution is injected into the vein. The injected vein shrinks, closes off and gradually disappears. The solution used is safe with few allergic reactions reported. No anesthetic is utilized.
