Spider Vein Treatment Options In New Jersey
Spider veins can be confused with varicose veins, but they aren’t the same thing. In most cases, spider veins are typically a cosmetic complaint, though a few complications can arise from untreated spider veins. The experienced team at Comprehensive Vein Care can help you understand what’s going on with your veins, whether you’re experiencing spider veins and what options you have for spider vein treatment.
Spider Vein Treatments
While these veins may not be a medical issue, many people would prefer to handle them for cosmetic reasons. The veins can create dark blue or purple patches or lines on the skin. Typically, they appear on the legs, specifically around the knees and ankles and on the thighs. But spider veins can also appear on the face, showing up on cheeks, nose and chin. Because of this, they aren’t always easy to hide with clothing.
Whether you want to reduce or get rid of spider veins for cosmetic purposes or your doctor feels there is a medical issue at play, there are treatment options. The qualified team at Comprehensive Vein Care works with you to understand the true nature of your vein complaint so viable solutions can be offered.
Some treatment options include:
- Laser therapy
- Ambulatory phlebectomy
- Radiofrequency ablation
Many of these treatments are outpatient procedures that don’t require general anesthesia or a stay overnight in a facility. While insurance doesn’t typically cover cosmetic procedures, the team at Comprehensive Vein Care can file with your insurance if treatment of your spider veins was medically necessary.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPIDER VEINS AND VARICOSE VEINS?
CAN SPIDER VEINS BE DANGEROUS?
Usually, spider veins are more of a cosmetic complaint than a medical situation requiring intervention. Secondary complications that might arise from spider veins can include excessive bleeding if the area is punctured, swelling, ulcers, or cramps in the legs.
