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 improve the appearance of your legs.
Each treatment session places you under the dedicated care of two medical professionals who are trained to provide a unique combination of therapeutic techniques in order to ensure patient comfort and treatment effectiveness.
Although vein treatment requires several sessions, you will be able to drive yourself to and from each treatment with no downtime. There is also no need to wear any uncomfortable items such as wraps, bandages, or cotton balls. Other than keeping your legs out of the sun for a few days, there are no significant restrictions. You can walk out of our treatment center immediately and resume normal daily activities.
Miller Vein patients are able to purchase VeinErase® treatment packages to save money, and there is also the reassurance of a money-back guarantee.
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.
