Our vein doctors in New York City are skilled in using advanced techniques like RF vein ablation, VenaSeal, ClariVein, microphlebectomy, and advanced sclerotherapy to effectively treat even the most difficult vein cases.

What Causes Spider and Varicose Veins?

The smooth circulation of blood is facilitated by one-way valves within blood vessels, ensuring a continuous flow toward the heart. However, prolonged periods of sitting or standing can disrupt this balance, leading to the pooling of blood in the leg veins. This elevated pressure causes the veins to stretch and compromises the effectiveness of the valves, ultimately resulting in the development of spider and varicose veins.

Symptoms of Spider Veins

  • Noticeable clusters or intricate webs of slender veins that are red, blue, or purple
  • Veins that take on a resemblance to the branches of trees or spider webs
  • Occasional itching or a sensation of mild burning in the area
  • Prolonged periods of standing or sitting lead to discomfort or pain
  • Inflammation in the surrounding region
  • Concerns related to the veins' appearance

Symptoms of Varicose Veins

  • Dark blue or purple veins that appear visibly distended, twisted, or cord-like
  • An uncomfortable or heavy feeling in the legs, especially after prolonged periods of standing or sitting
  • Swelling or inflammation in the legs, feet, or ankles
  • Muscle cramping or throbbing in the legs
  • Itching or irritated skin surrounding the problematic veins
  • Changes in skin color or texture, including darkening or thickening
  • The presence of ulcers or open sores, typically near the ankles in severe cases
  • Restless legs syndrome characterized by a constant and irresistible urge to move the legs
  • Persistent leg fatigue or tiredness, regardless of activity levels or rest

Vein Treatment Options

At our NYC vein clinic, we recognize that spider and varicose veins, while usually harmless, can still lead to discomfort and affect your self-confidence. Whether you're seeking relief from painful symptoms or looking for aesthetic vein removal, our team offers a range of effective treatment options.

Vein Ablation

Our clinic employs cutting-edge techniques such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and laser vein ablation for venous insufficiency and varicose vein treatment. These minimally invasive procedures, performed in the comfort of our office, involve the precise delivery of thermal energy through a small catheter to close abnormal veins.


The sclerotherapy technique involves injecting a specialized solution known as a sclerosant into spider veins and small varicose veins, resulting in the collapse and fading of the treated veins. Widely recognized for its safety and efficiency, this method offers a sought-after solution for those looking to improve the visibility of their skin with a minimally invasive approach to spider vein treatment.


Offering an innovative approach, the VenaSeal™ procedure involves using a unique adhesive to seal damaged veins. This method is equally effective as radiofrequency ablation, as it employs a special glue that provides a dependable solution for closing troublesome veins.


Combining the strengths of two techniques, ClariVein tackles underlying venous insufficiency. By utilizing a small catheter, this approach merges chemical and mechanical interventions to effectively treat the affected vein.


Among the top choices for addressing bulging varicose veins in NYC, microphlebectomy is a specialized technique provided exclusively by experienced vein clinics. This in-office procedure, performed under local anesthesia, thoroughly removes the vein in small segments through tiny incisions. By adopting this minimally invasive approach, our skilled vein experts ensure precise and effective treatment, improving vein appearance and relieving associated symptoms.
