Find Your Confidence Again


While often a cosmetic concern, spider veins can come with aching and discomfort. A number of factors lead to spider veins, including genetics, obesity, and prolonged standing. However, with proven, advanced spider vein treatment in Greater Milwaukee, the experts at Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa can help you say goodbye to spider veins!

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are a type of dilated or damaged blood vessels that reside just under the skin. Due to their close proximity to the skin’s surface, they can be highly visible, and even distracting. They appear red, blue, or purple in color with patterns resembling tree branches or spider webs, hence the name spider veins. Spider veins can form anywhere on the body but are commonly found on the legs or face. While harmless, spider veins can be distinctly visible and difficult to cover up or hide, leading to feelings of low confidence. Those who find them distracting or simply do not like the way they look may choose to have them removed with treatment.

Spider Veins Causes & Symptoms

Spider veins form as a result of blood vessels that have weakened or expanded. While it is not exactly known what causes the blood vessels to do this, certain conditions like hormonal changes, genetic conditions, connective tissue diseases, and trauma or injury have all been identified as causes. Certain conditions or habits may put you at a higher risk of developing spider veins. Those include:
• Standing or sitting for extended periods
• Having a family history of spider veins
• Obesity
• Pregnancy
• Use of hormonal birth control or hormone therapy
• Prolonged sun exposure
• Smoking
Spider veins most often do not cause symptoms. Some symptoms, including cramping, itching, burning, or pain, have been reported occasionally by individuals with spider veins. However, even if you experience these symptoms, treatment can typically alleviate them, along with providing cosmetic enhancement.

What It Treats

Spider Veins

How We Treat Spider Veins

Our medical team treats spider veins on the legs, body and face with two techniques in our spa-like office:

Laser therapy – Using our 940 laser system, a pinpoint laser light passes through the skin and selectively targets the underlying vein. The vein will disappear over time, leaving the skin intact.

Sclerotherapy – We use a very fine needle to inject a sclerosing solution directly into the veins. The solution causes the lining of the vein to swell, eventually sealing off the blood vessel and preventing blood flow from re-entering the vein. We most often combine these two procedures during treatment, causing a “double injury” technique which results in more complete destruction of these veins and more rapid results.

Spider Vein FAQs

Can spider veins go away on their own?

Generally, spider veins do not go away on their own and tend to worsen over time.

What happens if I leave my spider veins untreated?

Are spider veins always the same color?

What spider vein removal treatments are available?

We offer two spider vein removal treatment options. Laser therapy can be used nto heat and destroy prominent spider veins or sclerotherapy can be performed to eliminate the veins.
