If you’re unhappy about the presence of leg veins, we encourage you to contact our Los Angeles office today so we can discuss treatment to clear unsightly veins on your legs.

    I wish there are more than 5 stars! Dr. Solieman & Dr. Litner are the BEST plastic surgeons/ people period. Not only are they facial plastic surgeons, ear, nose. and throat doctors, rhino revisionary specialists, they are really extraordinary people! There is a sincerity and kindness about them. They have changed my life :) I truly know how gifted/intelligent they are.

    They are attentive to your concerns and needs. They are both very knowledgeable and experienced, confident but without ego, rare to find in the LA area, very modest and down to earth. They focus on what will work best for you and your look, not what is 'the look'. They use state of the art technology for assessment, projections and results.


How Common are Leg Veins?

Spider and varicose veins are an incredibly common condition, especially in people over the age of 40. Nearly 80 million Americans suffer from leg veins. We estimate that about half of all women between the ages of 40 and 50 have visible leg veins. About 75% of women will have leg veins by the age of 70. Men suffer from leg veins less then women, but about 25% of men will have visible leg veins by 40.

Risk Factors

Leg veins are common across the entire population, but some people will develop more severe leg veins or see them appear sooner. The risk factors associated with leg veins include:

  • Family history of leg veins
  • Being a woman (thanks to the hormonal fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause)
  • Being overweight
  • Occupations that require you to stand for most of the day
  • Use of hormonal medications such as birth control
  • History of blood clots

Treating Leg Veins

We have found great success in clearing leg veins in men and women with our pulsed-light based laser technology. Laser technology is best used to improve superficial, diffuse spider veins. For spider veins, the laser is calibrated to target the red pigment in these tiny veins, breaking them apart so they can be absorbed by the body. For patients with extensive varicose veins, other treatment options may be available.

It’s time to stop hiding unsightly leg veins under long pants and skirts. Contact us today and take the first step towards getting your beautiful legs back!

How do Spider Veins and Varicose Veins Differ?

While both types of veins commonly appear on the legs, they aren’t the same thing at all. The chart below provides a brief comparison of these problematic leg veins.

Spider Veins Varicose Veins
Physical Appearance
  • Small, thin lines beneath the skin that are usually blue, red, or purple in color
  • Usually have a complex branching or web-like appearance
  • Thick, rope-like veins that appear dark purple or blue beneath the skin
  • Veins are often raised or bumpy and can be felt beneath the skin’s surface
  • Typically asymptomatic
  • Slight itching may occur when spider veins are a result of poor circulation
  • Heavy feeling, achiness, cramping, or throbbing in the legs
  • Increased pain after standing for longer periods
  • Itching around veins
  • Bleeding from the vein
Cause Caused by weakened valves or poor circulation that can lead to the formation of varicose veins Form when the one-way valve in the veins is damaged, causing blood to pool in the vein
