What are Spider and Varicose Veins
Spider veins are thin veins that are purple, blue and red in color and are often seen through the skin. These veins often form on the legs and face are caused by a number of factors including heredity, poor blood flow and hormonal changes – among other things.
Varicose veins are larger veins that are often raised above the skin. These veins also develop in the legs – commonly seen behind the knees. Varicose veins are also caused by heredity and hormonal changes that occur as a result of aging.
Both spider and varicose veins are often not a health concern, but more of an aesthetic concern. These veins have been known to cause mild discomfort, but they're appearance on the skin is often what brings people in for treatment.

Treating Spider and Varicose Veins
At PryorHealth, we offer two methods of spider and varicose vein treatment – Sclerotherapy and ThermaVein.
Sclerotherapy is one of the more common spider vein treatments, as it is minimally-invasive with virtually no down time. You can return to your normal routine almost immediately after treatment. Within a couple weeks following Sclerotherapy injections, most patients will see their spider varicose veins fading, with full results in a month or two. Depending on the treatment area, a series of treatments might be recommended. One of our medical experts will discuss your treatment options with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.
ThermaVein is another simple, minimally-invasive treatment that is most commonly used for facial spider veins. ThermaVein uses a technology known as thermocoagulation that is regarded as one of the safest and most effective treatments available. Treatments commonly take between 15 to 40 minutes, with almost immediate results. This innovative technology causes the veins to close and disappear, with virtually no side effects.
