Double board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, Gregory D. Lewen, M.D., offers spider vein treatment for men and women in Miami, Aventura, and the surrounding areas of Florida.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that appear most commonly on the thighs, calves, and ankles. They are very similar to varicose veins but smaller and closer to the surface of the skin. Spider veins can look like tree branches or spider webs due to the short jagged lines that develop. Although they are usually found on the legs, they can also be found on the face and can sometimes cover other skin areas.

A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including:

  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal shifts
  • Exposure to the sun
  • Weight gain
  • Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing

Please note that some patients misidentify spider veins as varicose veins. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can be flesh-colored, dark purple, or blue. They often look like cords and appear twisted and bulging. Usually, they are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. These veins cannot typically be treated with laser. If you have questions regarding any veins, you may ask Dr. Lewen during your consultation.

What Should I Expect from Spider Veins Treatment?

Spider veins treatment is commonly performed in the office in less than 30 minutes, although this varies depending on the size of the area being treated. It is a relatively painless and comfortable procedure. Although it may take additional sessions to reach your complete aesthetic goals, you will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of your veins after just one session.

What Are the Benefits of Spider Veins Treatment?

Spider veins do not pose a medical concern. The primary benefit of spider veins treatment is cosmetic in nature, and, as an oculofacial plastic surgeon, Dr. Lewen is uniquely qualified to treat spider veins on the face and nose.
