Spider and Reticular Veins

Refined Dermatology | Los Gatos + Greater San Jose

Scared of spiders? Banish them for good with laser therapy for vein damage. Also known as reticular veins, treating these benign but incredibly annoying blemishes comes down to what kind of venous insufficiency you have. Spider veins creep into the lower legs and are a side effect of venous insufficiency or venous disease. If you have true venous disease, it’s important to see a primary care doctor or specialist for lower leg treatment. Just grumbling about the common spider veins many of us struggle with? Connect with Refined Dermatology and we’ll get those pests under control.

Vein Disease | Refined Dermatology, Los Gatos, CA

Spider veins creep into the lower legs and are a side effect of venous insufficiency or venous disease.

Refined Dermatology treats spider and reticular veins, not varicose veins (you’ll need a different kind of specialist for that). The lower leg’s venous system is kind of like an upside down tree. You have the trunk, limbs, branches, twigs, and a few leaves. That’s all good and natural, but if there’s a vein problem you need to start at the trunk. Anything above the knee is more serious and requires a specialist, and we’re happy to refer you to one.

At Refined Dermatology, we specialize in the twigs and leaves. Injectables, lasers, or a combination of the two are the most effective strategies for handling spider veins. These superficial conditions don’t require serious medical attention. Surface cosmetic treatment for spider and reticular veins requires laser therapy, usually with ExcelV. It coagulates the blood cells for better flow and a reduction of visible veins.
