Spider Vein Treatment in Boca Raton at Farber Plastic Surgery
Just what are those tiny red lines on your face, legs, and hands? They are spider veins – very small veins that are swollen with blood caused by improper blood flow back to your heart. The name comes from the “web-like” appearance that the veins form on your skin.
What Is Spider Vein Treatment?
Laser technology allows Dr. Farber to treat the smallest imperfection on your skin, including the seemingly miniscule spider veins – all without damaging the surrounding skin. As the veins fade away, you are left with only clear, beautiful skin.
Is Spider Vein Treatment Right for Me?
Laser treatment is a safe and effective non-invasive treatment for spider veins. Spider veins may be an indication of an underlying problem with your circulation, so Dr. Farber recommends that you work closely with your family physician to determine the cause.

What Happens During the Spider Vein Treatment?
Laser energy is applied to the spider veins, causing the vein to collapse. The destroyed vein is absorbed by your body and blood is re-routed through healthier veins. Laser treatments destroy the spider veins that you have, but the treatments do not prevent you from developing new spider veins.
How Much Does Spider Vein Treatment Cost in Boca Raton, FL?
Several factors determine the number of treatments that you will need, and your medical insurance may cover a portion of the treatment. Convenient financing can help you manage your portion of the cost.
