Spider Vein Treatment in Austin, TX

Spider Vein Treatment in Austin, TX

Spider Vein Treatment | Austin TX Dermatology | SclerotherapySpider veins are a common problem, which if left untreated, can cause aesthetic concerns as well as pain, discomfort, and other symptoms overtime. Advanced non-surgical skin care solutions are available to treat spider veins effectively.

Zimmet Vein & Dermatology is a renowned practice led by highly experienced vein specialist and dermatologist, Dr. Steven Zimmet. Dr. Zimmet receives patients from Austin, TX and surrounding communities for spider vein and other skin treatments.

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins typically appear as tiny, thin and jagged lines that may resemble the branches of a tree or a spider’s web. These veins will occur just below the top surface of the skin, and their red, purple or blue color may show on the skin. Legs and face are the common areas where spider veins usually occur. As compared to varicose veins, the spider veins are thinner and smaller, but can give a similar unsightly appearance to the skin.


An experienced skin care and vein treatment provider will try to evaluate the patient’s condition of spider veins, the extent of appearance, and the possible underlying causes. Zimmet Vein & Dermatology is a pre-eminent facility providing state of the art solutions for spider veins for patients in and around Austin, TX. Spider veins are primarily caused when the vein valve becomes damaged or weakened, resulting in poor blood flow. The blood tends to pool up in the vein, causing the appearance of spider veins.

Some of the factors that may contribute to the occurrence of spider veins include genetics, hormonal fluctuations, aging, injury, or prolonged standing position. As an experienced dermatologist and vein expert, Dr. Zimmet will provide appropriate treatment for spider veins, depending on the unique condition of a patient.


Sclerotherapy is a traditional non-surgical treatment for spider veins that has been in use for many years. During treatment, Dr. Zimmet injects medication called sclerosants since they “sclerose,” or close, the treated vein. The treatment causes the veins to seal, shrink and then gradually dissolve. There are a variety of types of sclerosants, but Dr. Zimmet typically uses Sotradecol, Asclera (an FDA-approved form of polidocanol), and/or  a combination of dextrose and saline. He is not a proponent of hypertonic saline due to significant burning discomfort patients experience during treatment. Learn more.


Multiple treatment sessions may be needed for vein treatment, but the sessions are less than an hour, and do not involve any specific downtime. Most patients will ready to resume their regular activities or return to work the same day or next day. Compression stockings may have to be worn for a few days to expedite healing.
