Milwaukee Spider Vein Treatment

Many patients seek treatment for cosmetic veins and only achieve short-term results. This is a common occurrence when advanced ultrasound techniques are not used. Without a thorough evaluation, matting can occur. Matting is when pressure builds up, causing the spider veins to reopen and return in greater quantity. Milwaukee Laser & Body Aesthetics is partnered with Mequon Vein, an esteemed vein clinic, that uses state-of-the-art technology to provide long-term results.

Before & After Spider Vein Treatment

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, dilated blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin. They often resemble spider webs or tree branches and are commonly found on the legs, although they can occur in other areas as well. Spider veins occur when blood pools inside the smallest veins near the surface of the skin. They are clusters of red, blue or purple veins. It is a very common vein issue and is estimated to affect up to half of the population, with a more common occurrence in women.

Spider veins on a patient's legs might signal an underlying issue, indicating the likely presence of varicose veins beneath the skin's surface. Varicose veins are larger, deeper veins that can cause discomfort and other symptoms. Both spider & varicose veins are conditions influenced by genetics and lifestyle factors. If you have spider veins on your legs, we will provide you with a free screening, including an ultrasound that can determine if you have varicose veins. If you have questions regarding varicose veins, please visit the website for Mequon Vein or schedule a free screening today by calling 262-240-9640.

Types of Spider Vein Treatment

Milwaukee Laser & Body Aesthetics has a comprehensive range of advanced technologies to treat spider veins, even in the most challenging cases. Our treatment options include ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, cosmetic sclerotherapy, 1064 laser and Broadband lights. Regardless of the size or severity of your spider veins, we have the experience to address them. Following a complimentary 60-minute consultation, our physician will assess your condition and recommend the most effective treatment option tailored to your situation.

Cosmetic Sclerotherapy

Cosmetic sclerotherapy is the most common treatment option for spider veins. A small amount of sclerosant, FDA-approved medicine, is injected into the affected vein. The sclerosant reacts with the vein’s lining to cause it to seal up and eventually disappear. This treatment is easy to perform and doesn’t require anesthesia. Dr. Sabatino often uses ultrasound guidance to enhance precision, identify feeder veins, reduce complications, tailor treatment plans, improve patient comfort and minimize the risk of recurrence.

Dr. Sabatino and our team have years of experience and use the best techniques to significantly enhance the effectiveness and safety of cosmetic sclerotherapy for spider veins.

1064 Laser Treatment

Our 1064 laser treats spider veins in less than one hour by applying heat from a 1064 YAG laser directly onto the skin’s surface. The 1064 nm wavelength of the YAG laser is specifically designed to target hemoglobin, a protein found in red blood cells. Hemoglobin readily absorbs light in this wavelength, making it an ideal choice for treating spider veins. This absorption causes the blood to heat up rapidly, leading to the coagulation (clotting) of the blood within the targeted vessels. As the blood inside the spider veins coagulates, the walls of the blood vessels stick together. Over time, the body's natural healing processes gradually break down and remove the treated vessels, leading to their closure and disappearance.

The 1064 nm laser is carefully calibrated to minimize damage to the surrounding skin and tissue while effectively targeting the spider veins. This precision reduces the risk of scarring or pigment changes in the treated area.

Broadband Light

Broadband light technology (BBL) is used to treat the smallest veins. The light energy passes through the skin and is absorbed in the vein, delivering enough energy to collapse the diseased vein. Our Sciton device, equipped with adjustable BBL emission, functions similarly to the 1064 Laser by targeting the hemoglobin in blood during our spider vein treatments. The damaged vein is eventually dissolved by the body’s immune system and the spider vein disappears.
