What is Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider veins develop on the face and body. These tiny blood vessels typically have a bluish, reddish or purplish color, and create a distinct pattern just below the surface of the skin. Like varicose veins, spider veins indicate that blood is trapped inside the vein due to a circulation problem. Spider veins are much smaller, and do not bulge on the surface of the skin. Spider veins also do not produce pain.
What is the Cost of Spider Vein Treatment in Fredericksburg, VA?

What Are the Benefits of Spider Vein Treatment?
Our treatment for spider veins is non-surgical, so you have no downtime. In most cases, the veins can be treated from the surface of the skin, so it is a non-invasive procedure.
Is Spider Vein Treatment Right for Me?
If you see very small visible veins just below the surface of your skin, you may be a good candidate for our spider vein treatment. Dr. Palmer may recommend that you discuss the veins with your primary physician to ensure that they are not indications of other circulatory problems.
How is Laser Vein Treatment Performed?
Laser vein treatment can be performed using several techniques. For varicose veins, a thin fiber is inserted into the vein. Laser energy heats the vein walls and causes it to collapse. Laser treatment for spider veins is non-invasive.
How is Spider Vein Treatment Performed?
Dr. Palmer uses a device that administers laser energy into the spider veins. The treatment is safe enough to use on the delicate skin of the face, as well as other areas of the body. The laser energy is emitted at a wavelength that is only absorbed by the blood cells inside the vein, so no other tissues are affected. The thermal heat causes the vein to break down and be absorbed by your body. Your body routes blood flow through other healthy veins.
What is Spider Vein Treatment Recovery Like?
You may experience some minor symptoms after your spider vein treatment, such as swelling, changes in skin color due to blood being released from the spider vein, and minor discomfort. These symptoms are temporary. Dr. Palmer may recommend some lifestyle changes to help you prevent new spider veins from developing around the treatment area.
Spider veins are not harmful, but the look of these damaged veins can be embarrassing. Dr. R. Shane Palmer offers spider vein treatment for men and women in Washington DC, Fredericksburg, Stafford, Richmond, Charlottesville, and the nearby communities in Virginia.
