Spider Veins

Spider Veins, or telangiectasias, are small, thin, blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They appear most commonly on the face, thighs, and feet, and may look like a series of lines, tree branches, or a spider- or web-like shape with a dark center. Although spider veins are usually considered only a cosmetic problem, spider veins can show symptoms of a burning sensation or a dull, throbbing pain, and can lead to varicose veins and other serious complications. You may see a cosmetic problem, but what’s going on under the surface is a medical issue. Whether or not you’re experiencing discomfort, whether it’s affecting your ability to live the life you want, you should find out what it means and what you can be doing about it. To get an accurate diagnosis and most effective treatment, you should talk to Chicago’s hometown vein specialists, Chicago Vein Institute.

If Left Untreated

Varicose veins are a progressive disease. Spider veins very often occur in conjunction with varicose veins. You can experience pain when standing or walking, develop sores on or near a varicose vein, and your feet and ankles may swell.

If left untreated, spider and varicose veins can cause, blood clots, phlebitis, venous statis ulcers, skin discoloration, lipodermatosclerosis and atrophie blanche.

Spider Vein Treatment Methods

We take the time to evaluate your needs and create a customized treatment strategy for you. There are two types of sclerotherapy procedures for unhealthy veins.

Spider Vein Treatment Using Sclerotherapy

Every year, Chicago Vein Institute performs more than 6,000 sclerotherapy procedures to reduce the appearance of visible veins. Sclerotherapy is done in our offices and anesthesia is not required. Patients have minimal pain and discomfort, with no scaring. There is also no downtime, so sclerotherapy is a great choice for our patients who want to improve their bodies without having to take time away from work or family obligations. Our sclerotherapy procedures can also be performed on all types of skin and skin tones.

Ultrasound-Guided

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy uses an ultrasound and fine gauge needle to inject a small amount of special medication into the damaged veins…

Surface Sclerotherapy

Surface Sclerotherapy is often used to eliminate spider veins. Like ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy procedures, a very small needle is used to inject a medication that targets the unhealthy veins…

Just finished my treatment at the Chicago Vein Institute and I'm very happy with the services they provided. Dr. Sunje and his medical team did an excellent job. All of the treatments and aftercare were explained to me thoroughly and clearly. My appointments were scheduled very well to accommodate... my work hours, and they were helpful with my health insurance as well which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend them to all of my family and friends!read more

Chicago Vein Institute is the place to go to change your life around! I knew my veins in legs were not good but didn't know how bad until the Chicago Vein Institute evaluated them and successfully treated them. I feel like I have new legs again, thanks to the Chicago Vein Institute. The doctors... and staff educated me about vein disease, very professional, nice and invested in patients' success. Best investment of time, money and energy for one's future.read more

If you suffer from rhoids (you know what I’m talking about!) just come here. They treat them with infrared laser to reduce the swelling and it helps tremendously. It’s a quick procedure and you’ll be feeling better soon after. Don’t walk around in silence. Yes it’s awkward but it’s better than... being in pain! I hope my review helps someone. I didn’t see any other reviews about them so thought I would help others out there. They do get busy so keep that in mind. Appointments are not always immediate. They were nice enough to squeeze me in one day on the same day basis because I was in so much pain. I’m very grateful for them.read more

Just had a wonderful experience at CVI. As a new patient, I learned so much from Paul. It is clear he loves his job, which makes the experience that much more positive. Dr. Sunje provided excellent care. I found the right place.

Dr. Sunje and his staff: Sandy/Vanessa- Receptionists; Cece, Paul, Madeline, Jackie, Vanessa, Joanna and Gabriela, are professional at what they do, respectively, yet personal in caring about my well being throughout the process. Each time I went, regardless of who was assisting with my outpatient... procedures, they were in tuned to making sure I was taken care of. Dr. Sunje called me on a Saturday to see how I was doing from an outpatient procedure I had completed the previous day. I look forward to my visits knowing that the best outcome will be achieved with Dr. Sunje and his staff.read more

My doc Cece was so nice and made me feel very welcomed. I asked for a specific, natural look and that’s exactly what I got. I had many questions and all of them were answered with full details. Her assistant Jazmine was so sweet and made me feel welcomed. I would definitely recommend! Every penny... was worth it. Quality service in all aspectsread more

This is the best vein clinic I have been to. Staff is very friendly and pleasant and Dr. Sunje gives you his undivided attention. I went for spider vein sclerotherapy on my legs and they did not only do an excellent job removing spider veins but also walked me through the steps of the procedure and... did a quick ultrasound to determine and explain the underlaying causes of my spider veins. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone with vein-related concerns on their legs.read more

I have been to the Chicago Vein Institute twice to see Lauren for lip fillers.I can't express just how happy I am with my results! She was able to create the exact shape and pout that I was looking for. Lauren is very gentle and precise with her work. Honestly, I'm hooked and cannot wait to go back... to see her again!read more

I had such an amazing experience at the clinic. I had Dysport injections with Cecilia Lee and could not be happier with the results. She took excellent care of me and made me feel very comfortable with the procedure. Everyone I interacted with at the clinic was very professional and courteous. I... will certainly be returning. 😊read more

The staff, physicians, nurses, PAs, NPs and administrative support, are incredibly friendly, and show genuine concern for the patient. Physicians and nurses take their time, reviewing procedures with clients, and patiently answers questions. The level of competence is very high. I have been to a... lot of offices that offer medical and cosmetic procedures, but this is the absolute best I ever found, bar none. I recommended the Chicago Vein Institute to my friends, and will continue to do so. I wish I could give more than 5 points!read more
