Tired of hiding your legs?  Are you experiencing leg pain or have painful varicose veins?  The Mankato Clinic provides treatment for both spider veins and varicose veins.

Spider veins-not to be confused with varicose veins-are dilated or stretched blood vessels that have a branching pattern which are commonly found on the thigh and lower leg.

When to Consider Spider Vein Treatment?

  • If you have visible veins on your legs or thighs that have a branching or web-like pattern.
  • If you feel that your spider veins are a sign of aging that you would like to eliminate.
  • If you are embarrassed by the noticeable branching or web-like veins.
  • If you avoid wearing shorts or swimming apparel because you don’t want others to see your spider veins.

Spider vein therapy called sclerotherapy is a procedure where a solution is injected into the vein which then causes the vein to shrink and gradually disappear.

Skin Essentials at the Mankato Clinic offers sclerotherapy. Call 507-625-6599 for a complimentary consultation to find out if you are a good candidate for spider vein treatement.

  • The VNUS Closure procedure is minimally invasive, offers a fast and mild recovery and is almost always covered by insurance.
  • A referral will be needed.  Talk to your care provider today to see if the VNUS Closure procedure is right for you.
