Spider Veins and Varicose Veins
Spider veins and varicose veins are a terrible reality for millions; especially in Houston where summer weather prevails and cool clothing is a must for at least six months out of the year. Luckily, these unsightly problems can be treated with laser therapy or vein removal surgery.
Spider veins, which literally look like blue or red spiders just below the skin’s surface develop on the face, décolleté and legs. Laser technology dissipates the patches of discoloration, returning your once discolored patches back to their normal, healthy appearance. The severity of your spider veins will determine the number of treatments required.
Varicose veins most commonly develop in the legs and appear as raised, often bruise-colored, cord-like bulges. The procedure is minimally invasive and little downtime is required.
Each patient’s case is different. After your evaluation, Dr. Kern will counsel you about treating your veins and answer any questions you might have.
