Step 1: Diagnose the root cause of spider veins and varicose veins.
Your vein treatment process will start with a casual discussion with Dr. Novak, an incredibly kind and friendly vein doctor. She’ll examine your leg veins and spider veins while asking you to describe how you’re feeling. She may ask you if you’re experiencing any leg heaviness, leg swelling, restless legs, frequent leg cramps, throbbing leg veins, or other such sensations that worsen at the end of the day. She’ll ask these questions to determine if you might be suffering from underlying chronic venous insufficiency.
Venous insufficiency is the root cause of most vein-related problems, including spider veins and varicose veins. Vein disease is a condition wherein the collapse of your vein valves leads to the accumulation of blood in your leg veins, which, in turn, leads to several vein problems. Most inexperienced vein doctors simply treat spider veins without diagnosing the underlying vein disease, leading to recurrence or further worsening of the problems. However, Dr. Novak diagnoses the underlying vein disease to treat the source of your spider veins.
After the initial examination, Dr. Novak administers Duplex Ultrasound, one of the most advanced vascular imaging tests to identify venous insufficiency. The vascular imaging test involves using ultrasound to visualize the direction of the blood flow in your leg veins, thus identifying the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your spider veins. Diagnosing the underlying venous insufficiency allows the vein doctor to curate the ideal vein treatment plan for your specific needs.
Step 2: Curate a personalized treatment plan for varicose veins and spider veins.
Dr. Novak curates a personalized treatment plan for varicose veins and spider veins. She includes you in the conversation, discussing your medical history, insurance plans, diagnosis, and cosmetic goals to recommend the ideal vein treatment options. She gives you all your vein treatment options and their pros/cons to empower you to make an informed decision. She also discusses every step of the vein treatment process, so you can step into the treatment without concerns or anxieties.

Step 3: Minimally invasive vein treatments for varicose veins.
Patients with varicose veins are far more likely to have underlying venous insufficiency. That’s because varicose veins are bulging leg veins with excessive blood accumulation, indicative of advanced vein disease. If you have underlying vein disease, as determined by the vascular imaging tests, the vein doctor will recommend one of the following minimally invasive vein treatments — radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal. All minimally invasive vein treatments have the same goal — remove the veins responsible for the spider veins and varicose veins to restore smooth blood circulation to the heart.
However, they achieve that goal through different methods. Radiofrequency ablation involves delivering thermal energy into the diseased vein’s walls to collapse the saphenous vein. Endovenous laser ablation involves delivering laser energy into the diseased vein to collapse its vein walls, rerouting the accumulated blood to healthier veins. And VenaSeal involves injecting a medical-grade adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein to fuse its vein walls and reroute the accumulated blood to healthier veins. After they remove the veins, the accumulated blood flows to healthier leg veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

Step 4: Minimally invasive vein treatments for spider veins.
The primary vein treatment addresses the underlying venous insufficiency but doesn’t necessarily remove the veins on the surface of the skin. As such, the vein doctor may recommend sclerotherapy as a minimally invasive vein treatment for the spider veins and small varicose veins on the skin’s surface. Sclerotherapy will also be the ideal treatment for patients who have spider veins without underlying vein disease, as determined through vascular imaging.
During sclerotherapy, the vein doctor injects a medicine into the spider veins. The medicine, also known as a sclerosant, fuses the spider veins’ walls, turning them into hardened scar tissues. Over time, your body absorbs the scar tissues, and they gradually fade away from the skin’s surface in a few weeks. The sclerotherapy procedure is painless and only includes a few injections. There is no downtime or recovery period, so you can leave the clinic and resume most of your daily activities immediately.
