Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are blue, purple, or red veins that appear on the surface of the skin. Spider veins can appear anywhere on the body, but are often found on the legs or face.
Note: Most spider vein treatments are not covered under insurance.
Although spider veins are considered cosmetic, they frequently cause symptoms and are treatable with Miller Vein’s trademarked VeinErase® program. This system is the least painful and most cost-effective method to rid your legs of spider veins. Spider vein treatment is a gradual process and requires several sessions. Luckily, due to the minimally-invasive nature of this treatment option, you can drive yourself to and from each treatment with no downtime.
Miller Vein patients are able to purchase a VeinErase® treatment package to save money. You will also be happy to know that you do not need to wear compression stockings after treatment. And other than keeping your legs out of the sun for a few days, there are no restrictions. You can walk out of our treatment center immediately and resume normal daily activities.
Available treatment options for spider veins include:
Sclerotherapy, also known as microsclerotherapy, is a safe procedure in which a solution (sclerosing agent) is injected into affected veins using extremely fine needles which causes the veins to close. The number of treatments varies from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the problem.
VeinGogh™ delivers radiofrequency energy through an ultra-fine insulated needle, to heat the affected blood vessels, which causes the sides of the blood vessel to stick together and disappear. The ultra-fine needle allows for precise, accurate treatments, even in hard to treat areas, such as the nose and cheeks.
VeinGogh™ is the preferred treatment for facial veins and Rosacea. This treatment should not be used if you are pregnant, have a severe nickel allergy, or have a permanent pacemaker.
VeinGogh™ is an improvement upon a device developed by a leading vascular surgeon in the United Kingdom, inventor Brian Newman, M.D. Our very own Dr. Miller trained directly with Dr. Newman in order to bring this specialized treatment to Michigan. Miller Vein is a preferred provider for VeinGogh™.
Vein Touch Ups (yes, that is a medical term)
Since your body continues to produce spider veins despite successful vein treatment, touch up treatments are usually necessary.
