What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins appear just under the skin as a concentrated network of red or blue erratic lines. The condition is so named because the veins look like a spider web. Spider veins develop when the tiny veins are swollen with blood, often caused by poor circulation. People who stand for long periods of time or sit with their legs crossed are likely to develop the veins, but even people with active lifestyles will develop spider veins. In most cases, the veins are simply a cosmetic nuisance but can be the first signs of a circulatory problem. We recommend that you be evaluated by Dr. Leverett to determine why you have spider veins and how the condition can be treated.

Our spider vein treatment is quick and simple. In just 15 to 45 minutes, we destroy the damaged veins. Just a few weeks later, you notice a significant reduction in the veins, and there is absolutely no downtime or recovery required!
Good Candidates for Spider Vein Treatment
Body by Leverett uses IPL photofacial technology to treat spider veins. The treatment works on most skin types.
What Can I Expect from My Spider Vein Treatment?
The settings on the IPL photofacial system are adjusted to the specific requirements for spider vein treatment. Dr. Leverett administers the intense pulsed light directly to the spider veins using short bursts. Each burst feels like your skin is snapped with a rubber band. Most patients are able to easily tolerate the sensation.
After the Spider Vein Treatment
For two to six weeks after the treatment, your skin will have a red appearance that will gradually fade. You will also notice that the spider veins are less prominent. Dr. Leverett may recommend follow-up treatments every four to six weeks until the spider veins are completely gone.
How Much Does Spider Vein Treatment Cost?
The cost of your spider vein treatment is determined during your consultation appointment. Dr. Leverett offers financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, cash and cashier’s checks.
Even though spider veins are very small, people who have them feel like they are quite noticeable and obvious.
