What Is Spider Vein Treatment?
Almost everyone develops spider veins at some point. The veins appear in a web-like pattern just below the surface of the skin. The vessels may be bluish, purple, or red. Spider veins develop due to an abnormality in the veins, but typically do not pose a medical concern and can be easily treated.
Spider veins indicate that blood flow has been disrupted, most often due to damage to the small veins that causes blood to pool within the vein rather than return to the heart. Spider veins can be treated without diminishing blood flow because your body will use the surrounding, healthier veins.
Drs. Hueneke and MaDan treat spider veins via sclerotherapy and laser treatments. Sclerotherapy in Nashville involves injecting a special solution into the damaged veins that causes the vein walls to stick together. Laser therapy works much the same way. The thermal energy of the treatment damages the vein, making it unable to pass blood. Your body re-routes blood to other veins, and the damaged vein is eventually absorbed by your body.
What Is the Cost of Spider Vein Treatment?
The average cost of facial spider vein treatment is $100 – $250 in Nashville; the average cost of lower body spider vein treatment is $250 – $1,000. The average cost of sclerotherapy is $250 – $1,000, although this does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for spider vein treatment at the time of your consultation.
