Don't just jump into spider-vein treatment: Find a doctor
who is board-certified in dermatology or cosmetic or vascular surgery and
experienced in the procedures. If you have a personal or family history of
clotting or bleeding disorders or large varicose veins, you may need to undergo
additional evaluation. And be sure to talk with your doctor about your
expectations, because treatment results will vary depending on your age and the
size of the spider veins.
