Top Spider Vein Experts in Los Angeles

Spider veins, thread veins, and telangiectasia appear as reddish or bluish blood vessels under the skin. Many people don't realize that spider veins can occur anywhere on the body, but are most prevalent on the feet, ankles, legs, and thighs. Our office specializes in the treatment of spider veins on the face as well as the legs and thighs.

Facial Vein Treatments

Spider veins of various sizes are very commonly seen on the face. In our Los Angeles vein center, we often treat spider veins around the T-zone of the face (forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks), facial blushing, rosacea, and eyelid spider veins. Depending on the severity of the spider veins, treatments include laser therapy, RF ablation, IPL Limelight, and surgery. Spider and varicose veins around the eyelids often require a combination of surgery and laser.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical vein treatment that uses safe, FDA-approved injections to eliminate spider veins underneath the skin. Years ago, sclerotherapy was limited to small thread-like spider veins, but advancements in sclerotherapy injections now allow clinicians to target larger reticular veins and varicose veins.
 
Many of our patients present with cosmetic spider vein concerns that do not require advanced surgical treatments such as microphlebectomy, vein stripping, or endovenous ablation. For these patients, Dr. Karamanoukian will choose sclerotherapy as the treatment of choice because of its safety, efficacy, and longterm outcome. Using micro-doses of FDA-approved injections, unwanted spider and reticular veins can be targeted and eliminated with minimal downtime or risk.
