Why choose the VeinErase® program?
Unlike many clinics who charge a lot but treat a little, we treat both legs in one session and use the maximum, safe dose of medication. We only use FDA-approved medications and medical devices to ensure your safety and our team will screen for more serious medical conditions during your visit. We take pictures prior to each treatment session so you can see the results.
We don’t sell or perform unnecessary procedures. Every day we see patients who have visited other vein clinics only to receive treatment they didn’t need. Over 1,500 physicians have referred their patients to Miller Vein because we do not recommend unnecessary medical treatments.
VeinErase® includes a unique combination of therapeutic techniques. Cold air and vibration are applied to your skin during the procedure to ensure your comfort. You can also take comfort in knowing that our team treats the underlying cause of spider veins to ensure longer lasting results.

Spider Vein Treatments
The most common method of treatment used in the VeinErase® method is sclerotherapy. A medication is injected directly into vessels to close spider veins. Sclerotherapy is considered the gold standard for treatment of larger spider veins on the legs and hands.
A commonly used treatment for smaller leg veins and veins on the face and hands is VeinGogh™ which delivers radiofrequency energy through an ultra-fine insulated needle to heat the affected blood vessels. The sides of the blood vessel stick together then disappear. The ultra-fine needle allows for precise, accurate treatments, even in hard-to-treat areas, such as the nose and cheeks.
“I recently had VeinGogh™ treatment to take care of spider veins on my nose and cheeks. I could not be more pleased with the results and was pleasantly surprised on how quick and easy the procedure is.”
– M.S., VeinErase® Patient
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Spider Veins?
These veins are called spider veins for their resemblance to spider webs. These thin, tiny veins are blue, purple, or red and are 1mm or less in diameter. Spider veins can appear anywhere on the body but are often found on the legs or face. Many patients with these veins have symptoms of leg tiredness, pain, or burning.
What are reticular veins?
Reticular veins are small bluish, or greenish vessels that are 1 to 3 mm in diameter. Reticular veins feed spider veins and treated at the same time for longer lasting results.
What causes spider veins?
Women develop spider veins more often than men, and these veins occur more frequently as we age. Your probability of getting spider veins increases if you become pregnant or have a job or lifestyle that requires you to stand for long periods of time. Spider veins are often hereditary and other potential risks include sun exposure, leg trauma, and obesity.
How does laser treatment compare to sclerotherapy?
Patients tell us that laser therapy feels like a rubber band snap and is more painful than sclerotherapy.
Do men get spider veins?
Short answer, yes! While more common with women, men also suffer from varicose and spider veins.
Can I get spider veins on my face?
Although spider veins most commonly occur on legs, the face and nose are frequently affected.
Are spider vein treatments covered by insurance?
Spider veins are considered cosmetic in nature and treatment is not covered under most insurance plans.
Can spider veins signal a more serious medical condition?
Spider veins can signal underlying venous reflux disease (VRD) or chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Symptoms include leg pain, throbbing, heaviness, aching, swelling, itching, skin changes, or a wound that won’t heal. You will be screened for these conditions during your evaluation.
