The Types Of Vein Conditions We Treat

At Wound and Burn Centers of America, we specialize in revolutionary non-surgical treatments for various venous abnormalities affecting the legs and body, including telangiectasias, spider veins, reticular veins, and varicose veins.


Telangiectasias, also known as dilated or broken blood vessels or capillaries, are common vascular abnormalities. They appear as thin, red, or purple lines on the skin’s surface, resembling a spider web or branches. Telangiectasias may cause symptoms like itching, burning, or stinging sensations. These abnormalities form due to weakened vein walls and increased pressure due to factors like sun exposure, genetics, or certain medical conditions.

Reticular Veins

Reticular veins are medium-sized, bluish-green veins that appear just beneath the skin. They are larger than spider veins but smaller than varicose veins. Reticular veins may cause discomfort, such as aching or throbbing. They form due to the weakening of vein walls and valves, which leads to blood pooling and increased pressure. Factors such as heredity, hormonal changes, and prolonged standing can contribute to their development.

Spider Veins

Spider veins are smaller, thin veins that appear close to the skin’s surface. They are often red or blue in color and resemble spider webs or branches. While usually harmless, they can cause discomfort, such as itching or aching. Spider veins form when small blood vessels near the skin’s surface dilate due to various factors like heredity, hormonal changes, prolonged sitting or standing, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are swollen and twisted veins that commonly occur in the legs. They appear as bulging, blue, or purple veins beneath the skin’s surface. Varicose veins can cause pain, heaviness, and swelling. They form when the valves in the veins weaken or become damaged, causing blood to flow backward and accumulate, leading to vein enlargement. Factors like hormonal changes, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations contribute to their formation.

Signs & Symptoms Of Spider Veins & Varicose Veins:

  • Red or blue spider-web-like veins
  • Bulging or twisted veins
  • Veins close to the skin’s surface
  • Itching or burning sensations
  • Aching or throbbing discomfort
  • Swelling in the legs, ankles, or feet
  • Leg cramps or fatigue
  • Skin discoloration or texture changes around the affected veins

The Main Causes Of Spider Veins & Varicose Veins:

  • Heredity: Some individuals have genetically weaker vein valves. As such, a family history of spider veins and varicose veins increases the likelihood of developing these conditions.
  • Hormonal Changes: Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause can relax vein valves and contribute to the development of vein abnormalities.
  • Prolonged Sitting Or Standing: Occupations or activities that involve long periods of sitting or standing without movement can strain the veins and lead to vein problems.
  • Pregnancy: The increased blood volume and hormonal changes during pregnancy can put extra pressure on the veins, leading to the formation of spider veins and varicose veins.
  • Weight Fluctuation: Significant weight gain or loss can put stress on the veins, potentially causing them to weaken and enlarge, leading to vein problems.

Our Comprehensive Approach To Vein Treatments

At Wound and Burn Centers of America, our approach to vein treatments is comprehensive and tailored to each patient’s needs. Our expert team conducts thorough diagnoses and evaluations to determine the most suitable non-surgical treatment for your specific vein conditions. We offer advanced options, such as laser vein removal, utilizing innovative laser technology to target and eliminate veins, and sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a solution to collapse and fade affected veins. The choice of treatment depends on your specific vein conditions.

Laser Vein Removal

Laser vein removal involves the use of innovative laser technology to target and destroy unwanted veins without causing harm to the surrounding skin. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is selectively absorbed by the pigment in the blood within the veins. This absorption converts the light energy into heat, which damages the vein walls, leading to their eventual collapse and subsequent absorption by the body. Over a few weeks, the veins gradually shrink and fade away.


Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade over time. The injected solution, known as a sclerosant, irritates the inner lining of the vein, leading to inflammation and subsequent closure of the vessel. The body then naturally absorbs the treated vein, gradually diminishing its appearance. Sclerotherapy is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure for patients seeking to improve the appearance of spider veins and small varicose veins.
