Spider and Small Vein Therapy

Description of Spider and Reticular Veins

Spider veins are dilated veins (capillaries) close to the surface of the skin, most often on the face or legs. They manifest as visible red, purple, or blue veins, in one of three typical patterns, with a dark center point: spider-shaped, linear, or branched (like a tree).

Branch-Like Branch-Like
Linear Linear
Spider-Shaped Spider-Shaped

Spider veins often occur with Rosacea, can cover a small area of skin or a very large area of skin, and are often accompanied by burning and itching. Over 80,000,000 people in North America suffer right now from vein disorders, and approximately 8,000,000 of them are in Canada. Women are more likely than men to experience spider veins during their lifetime (approximately 25% of women, compared to 15% of men).

At The Vein Institute of Toronto, we treat all vein disorders using the latest laser methods, the best laser equipment available, and procedures developed by our team at our clinic. Our laser treatments involve no surgical intervention, so you will experience much less discomfort during and following your treatments.
