Spider Vein Treatment

Dr. Alan Dietzek and the team at Vein and Vascular Specialists have over 25 years of experience treating spider veins and performing sclerotherapy.

Vein and Vascular Specialist offers two procedures to treat spider veins:


Sclerotherapy is a process in which a salt solution is injected into a problem vein through a tiny entry point. After injection, patients may feel minor discomfort and tightening for up to two minutes. The procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the position and size of the veins and the patient's pre-existing medical conditions. Following treatment, patients should abstain from intense physical activity for up to one week. Prior consultation is necessary to determine eligibility for sclerotherapy.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

This minimally invasive procedure treats spider veins close to the skin and requires little to no recovery time. Using ultrasound precision, this type of foam sclerotherapy produces long-lasting results, mitigates pain and discomfort, and improves the cosmetic appearance of the skin. It also carries a low risk of side effects.
