Spider Veins are unsightly thin red, blue or purple veins that form web-like clusters, usually on the outer thighs and lower legs, though they may appear on the face in some individuals. Nearly 50% of women have them to some degree. Though spider veins are generally harmless, they may cause itching and burning, especially when standing or sitting for long periods of time. People usually choose to have them treated to improve their appearance.

Why Choose Evansville Surgical Associates for Laser Spider Vein Removal?
Unlike other area vein clinics, our laser vein treatments are supervised by a board-certified vascular surgeon, which means you can rest assured you’re being treated in the safest, most professional manner possible. During your evaluation, the surgeon will use an ultrasound to make sure there isn’t an underlying condition causing your spider veins. If that is the case, that must be treated first before treating the spider veins to ensure that your spider veins will resolve.
The vascular specialists at Evansville Surgical Associates use advanced laser technology to eliminate unsightly spider veins. This non-invasive laser technique works by delivering a precise dose of heat to the lining of the veins, causing them to collapse and fade, and finally be absorbed into the body. No incisions are made, though in some cases a small needle may be used to inject a solution into the feeder vein.
Patients may feel quick stinging sensations during the treatment, but there is usually no residual discomfort. Normal activity can resumed immediately after the treatment.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Laser Vein Treatment:
- Highly effective in eliminating spider veins
- In-office procedure
- No hospitalization
- 20-minute treatment time
- Resume normal activities the same day
- Works on all skin types
Depending on the severity of the spider veins, patients should expect to receive 3-5 treatments to complete the process.
