Spider veins can develop anywhere on the body but they’re most commonly seen on the face and legs.
At Sound Vascular we believe the best treatment for spider veins comes from an ABVLM-certified physician who has specialized in vein and vascular care, and requires the most advanced laser technology available.
That’s why our patients consistently receive the fastest, most comfortable treatments and get the results they want.

Sclerotherapy (injections) can be used to treat small areas of varicose veins and spider veins. The procedure is simple. A tiny needle injects the veins with a medication that irritates the lining of the vein. Over a short time, in response to the irritation, the vein closes and is reabsorbed. The blood from the closed vein is routed to properly working veins, restoring correct circulation. Sclerotherapy relieves symptoms due to varicose and spider veins in most patients. With this procedure, veins can be dealt with at an early stage, helping to prevent further complication and unsightliness.
You may need to have one to several sclerotherapy sessions for any vein region and the number of injections varies per session. Generally, normal activities can be resumed after sclerotherapy. Medically prescribed support hose and/or bandages may need to be worn for one to several weeks to assist in resolution of the veins. The procedure, performed at the Northwest Vein & Aesthetics Center, usually causes only minimal discomfort. Bruising and pigmentation may occur after sclerotherapy. If bruising occurs it usually disappears within 1-2 weeks. Although pigmentation almost always fades, it can last for several months. Scarring and other complications are rare.
Laser treatment is used primarily in the treatment of the smallest spider veins or broken capillaries on the leg or face. The laser emits a specific wavelength of high energy pulsed light, delivered in variable durations. After the energy passes through the skin, the light is absorbed by the red blood cells in the spider vein.
We offer treatment of spider veins and varicose veins with an FDA approved sclerosing agent. This is an actual injection of a medication into the affected veins that close the veins and shuts down blood flow, ultimately eliminating the veins treated. Our providers foam the solution to allow better resolution and coverage of the veins treated.
