Visible Veins

Treatment Options for Spider Veins or Bulging Veins

Purple, blue, red or bulging veins detract from your appearance and distract from your features. Because veins are below the skin, many feel hopeless about moving past spider veins or varicose veins. But treatment options continue to become more advanced, with downtime less involved and outcomes more hopeful.

Visible Vein Treatment Options

While Dr. Muasher offers a variety of vein treatments, many patients are most interested in light-based options. This is because laser vein treatments are both effective and involve little to no downtime. Minimally and non-invasive options include:

  • Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) – A contemporary alternative to surgical varicose vein removal, EVLT is minimally invasive. Laser energy seals problem veins to cease blood flow through those damaged valves. Most patients are able to return to regular activities immediately after treatment. EVLT is appropriate for more superficial veins that are bulging but not twisted.
  • Laser Spider Vein Treatment – This laser targets veins from outside the skin. The laser identifies the superficial vein and delivers light energy to the vessel. In the weeks after treatment, the vein collapses and seals off, then gradually fades. There is no downtime after treatment. Patients usually see ideal results with several treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
