Spider Veins

Spider veins are tiny red and purple veins just below the surface of the skin.

They are genetic or sun-related on the face, and usually hormone-related on women's legs.


Treating Spider Veins*

Sclerotherapy

This tried and tested procedure has been popular since the 1940s. It involves the injection of various fluids directly into problem veins. This produces injury to the vein with resultant closure.* 

It is most commonly used on veins in the legs. 

Our sister company, York Vein Clinic offers treatment for spider veins of the legs. Read more here.

Laser and Intense Pulsed Light

Light-based treatments are the solution for facial spider veins, including rosacea. One to three sessions are needed to clear up most of the tiny veins.* 

Laser doesn't work well for spider veins of the legs. It costs more, hurts more, and is less effective. Leg spider veins respond much better to sclerotherapy (see above).* 

The knowledgeable and experienced staff at York Laser and MedSpa can help you with your facial spider veins and rosacea.
