Spider veins are one of the most common problems that our patients face, and our Beverly Hills vein removal specialist, Dr. Ramtin Massoudi, is here to help you get rid of them.
Spider veins are visible, web-like groupings of red or blue veins that are visible close to the skin. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but they may appear without other symptoms and are generally less serious than varicose veins. Spider veins are caused by increased pressure in a vein, causing the vein to enlarge with excess blood and making it visible through the skin. Spider veins can be caused by a variety of conditions, but the most common cause is chronic venous insufficiency: a condition where the valves in blood vessels don't function correctly, allowing blood to flow backward and pool in the vein, causing it to swell. Normally, spider veins are little more than a cosmetic nuisance on their own, but if left untreated they can develop into varicose veins or more serious conditions.

How to Tell If You Have Spider Veins

Normally, spider veins won't cause symptoms by themselves – but they may appear as a result of a non-visible varicose vein, which may cause a variety of other symptoms. The most obvious way to detect spider veins is through the appearance of characteristic patches of visible, web-like veins on the legs, but in order to tell if the spider veins are a result of a bigger underlying problem, it's best to look for other symptoms. Any of the following symptoms may indicate the presence of varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, or another vein condition:
  • Cramping or pain in the legs
  • A feeling of heaviness in the legs
  • Swollen legs (edema)
  • Changes in the coloration or texture of the skin
  • Dermatitis
  • Bulging veins
  • Burning, tingling, or throbbing sensations in the legs
  • Tender, dry, or itchy skin
  • Eczema
  • Skin ulcers

Diagnosis & Spider Vein Treatment in Beverly Hills, CA

While the first step to diagnosing spider veins is identifying the appearance of visible spider veins in the legs, it's important to perform more thorough diagnostic tests to determine the severity of the problem. As your Beverly Hills vein removal specialist, Dr. Massoudi can use a specialized instrument called a Veinlite to perform an evaluation of spider veins, and we can also perform an ultrasound to determine if there are more serious underlying problems.
Whether the spider veins are an isolated issue or accompanied by varicose veins or chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), Aluna Vein Centers offers a variety of vein removal treatments to help you get rid of spider veins and reclaim healthy, youthful-looking legs. For spider veins, we'll normally use a procedure called sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a specialized material that closes the spider veins and eliminates the problem. The entire procedure takes no more than 15 minutes, and once closed, the veins naturally reabsorb into the body. In addition to sclerotherapy, we're proud to offer a range of specialized laser vein treatments from our Encino, Glendale, and Beverly Hills vein centers that make spider vein removal and varicose vein removal easy and convenient.
