What causes spider veins?
Though spider veins can occur in young men and women, they usually become more prominent as people age. The
most common risk factors for developing spider veins include:
- Sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time
- Being overweight or obese
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause
- Growing older
- Hormone replacement therapy or the use of birth control pills
- A history of blood clots
- Congenital factors
Trust your spider veins to a specialist
At Marcus Medical Spa, we specialize in reducing unsightly spider veins – restoring clear,
smooth and beautiful skin. As such, we are proud to offer our discerning clients the following treatment
options for among the best spider vein removal Los Angeles has available:
Laser vein treatment
The ideal option for small to medium-sized spider veins, our minimally invasive and virtually pain-free
laser vein treatment works by sending strong pulses of light directly into the veins without damaging the
surrounding healthy tissue. The blood vessels absorb the light, causing the veins to shrink and eventually
At Marcus Medical Spa, we use sclerotherapy for larger spider veins. During the procedure, we will inject a
specialized solution directly into the vein using an ultra fine needle. Once inside, the solution will
irritate the blood vessels forming the vein, causing a blood clot to form. The blood clot then turns into a
scar tissue that gradually fades away over time.
