Aesthetic Spider Vein Therapy – For Even-Looking Skin

Spider veins are superficial, small veins which become visible in the skin as reddish or blue branches.

Spider veins occur due to

  • Congenital connective tissue weakness
  • Pregnancy
  • Lack of movement / primarily standing or seated activities
  • Overweight / significant weight fluctuations
  • Longer flights / car trips
  • Female sex hormones which cause the connective tissue to prematurely weaken

Our vein experts use the most modern, innovative methods of aesthetic spider vein therapy – so that the skin on your legs has a more even appearance.

How is it performed?

Two methods for spider vein treatment are primarily used at Rosenpark Klinik:

  • Foam sclerotherapy: Using a very thin cannula, the foamed sclerosing agent polidocanol is injected into the smallest diseased vein. It causes a barely noticeable inflammation of the vascular wall. The vein adheres and occludes and is broken down by the body.
  • Laser sclerotherapy: The affected veins are irradiated through the skin with laser light. From the effects of the heat, the blood vessels contract, occlude and are then broken down by the body.

Is anesthesia required?


When can I resume normal daily activities?

Immediately – without any downtimes. The treated sites must be protected from sunlight for a while. Following foam sclerotherapy, compression therapy is advised for a few days. In addition, exposure of the injected sites to heat (sauna, sunbathing, tanning bed) should be avoided for three weeks.

You can find more information in our "Vein treatment" information sheets, which you can request from us free of charge.

Expert tip

Dr. Cecilia Duma: "Spider veins may only be the tip of the iceberg. Therefore we recommend regularly undergoing an examination of the major veins for the early detection and treatment of any varicose veins."
