We are a medical clinic that has had a special interest in treating Spider Veins for over 20 years. We have the full range of treatment options and that allows us to customise treatments to suit each individual situation. Our aim when treating Spider Veins is to achieve the biggest improvement as quickly as possible with the most cost effective option.
Spider veins are usually caused by a number of factors including hormones, pregnancy and family history. They’re especially common in women, with around 50% of all women living with spider veins at some point in their lives.
Spider veins can look like anything from a few spider web-looking lines, to a dark cluster that resembles a bruise. The colour of spider veins ranges from fine red veins to thicker blue veins that often bulge on the surface.
Spider Veins on the leg are best treated by these surface-based treatments:
The benefits of spider vein treatments aren’t only aesthetic, they’re effective at giving pain relief too. Treatments offer:
Surface injections cost $320 per treatment session. A Medicare rebate can apply if there are associated Varicose Veins being treated that are large enough to qualify, otherwise, no rebate is applicable.
Surface laser and surface radiofrequency do not qualify for any rebate and GST is also applicable. The usual cost for a treatment session with either Laser or Radiofrequency is $363 ($330 + GST).
It is quite common to have both Varicose Veins and Spider Veins at the same time. If the Spider Veins are in the same area as the Varicose Veins, then better results are achieved if the larger and deeper Varicose Veins are treated first. If Spider Veins are treated without correcting any underlying pressure from Varicose Veins, the results from treatment will be slower and there is a greater chance of developing bruising and staining of the skin from the treatment.
Laser and Radiofrequency treatments are reserved for the smallest of spider veins. This is when the veins are so small it can be difficult to insert a needle into them. Sometimes after sclerotherapy, residual tiny veins can be tidied up by laser or radiofrequency. Non-injection treatments can also be preferred if a patient is extremely needle phobic.
It depends on how many Spider Veins you have and how much improvement you wish to achieve. Typically 3-4 treatments may be necessary and these are spaced at least 4 weeks apart.
Our clinic offers treatments by cosmetic medical professionals, ensuring your safety, a great result and a clean, safe environment. Our Sclerotherapy treatments are all performed by medical practitioners who have many years of expertise in this procedure. Our Laser and Radiofrequency devices used to treat Spider Veins are all medical grade and specifically dedicated to treating Spider Veins. For the best results in removing Spider Veins, a range of medical options are required, as often a combination of these treatments are necessary. This range of Spider Vein procedures will not be found in spas, beauty salons and non-cosmetic medical centres.
Yes. When the veins form a cluster, it can resemble a bruise, and is called a Venular flare. Spider Veins can appear with or without feeding larger blue veins, but our treatments can treat all types of spider veins including clusters.
Avoid excess sun exposure and any other skin treatments, including waxing, on the legs in the week before treatment. On the day of treatment do not apply any creams or moisturisers to the legs.
Normal activities can be resumed after treatment but you should avoid heavy leg exercises at the gym for at least 48 hours. Extra walking is important after Sclerotherapy treatments and Compression stockings may also need to be worn for several days. After Laser and Radiofrequency treatments sun exposure needs to be avoided for at least 1 week.
