How Do I Know If I Have Spider Veins or Varicose Veins?

We have all seen unsightly spider veins – those pink, red, and bluish streaks that can run up legs and cause discomfort and pain. If you have them, you know how troublesome they can be. A vein consultation is the first step to determine whether your unsightly veins are simple spider veins, or more serious varicose vein disease and reflux. If a patient with spider veins has underlying venous insufficiency (i.e. saphenous vein reflux) that isn’t treated, then superficial treatments with sclerotherapy won’t be effective. This is why it is important to have your leg veins formally evaluated by a leg vein expert before beginning spider vein treatments. We can help determine the condition of your veins and walk you through all possible treatment options.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Once we’ve determined that you only have spider veins, sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice. Sclerotherapy is a procedure to treat spider veins by injecting a solution into the veins, which causes them to gradually disappear. This method, which has been used since the 1930s, remains the preferred treatment for spider veins and continues to offer better results than superficial laser treatments.

Is Sclerotherapy Safe?

At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we use only FDA-approved agents for spider veins. Asclera is a safe and effective injectable irritant that has a low risk of complications and side effects.

What Can I Expect from Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is performed in our offices and takes no more than an hour. Most patients need 2-4 treatments in order to achieve the desired results. There is no downtime other than avoiding strenuous activities for the first 2-3 days.

How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?

To determine the cost of your sclerotherapy, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals and any underlying varicose vein disease in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we accept a number of payment and financing options, including cash, checks, money orders, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing. We also offer simple and secure online payment options for the convenience of our patients. Although spider vein treatments are considered cosmetic, any underlying venous insufficiency (i.e. saphenous vein reflux) and larger, painful varicose veins are considered medical and may be covered by insurance.

If you have spider veins and think you are a good candidate for sclerotherapy, contact us today to schedule a consultation or to learn more about the treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, our expertise and years of experience allow us to offer safe and effective vein treatments to patients in McAllen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, and all of South Texas.
