Skilled Treatment for Spider Veins in Carlsbad, CA Area
Patients living with spider veins in Carlsbad, CA, are in luck. Dr. Amanda Lloyd at the Skin & Vein Institute specializes in professional procedures that can reduce the quantity of spider veins, restoring your legs' ideal tone and look.

What to Expect from Spider Vein Treatments

Every patient is different, and Dr. Amanda Lloyd works closely with each person she sees, ensuring she understands their goals and needs before beginning treatment. She offers various treatments for spider veins, and she can talk you through the benefits of each before you decide. Together you will both determine the best course of treatment based on your specific goals.


This quick, virtually painless procedure can effectively treat spider veins in less than an hour. Sclerotherapy is the introduction of a sclerosing agent into superficial veins visible through the skin. This injection causes a chemical reaction that closes the veins. Those veins are then reabsorbed by your body, removing them from the surface of the skin and making them undetectable to the naked eye. Following your appointment, you will wear compression socks for two weeks to ensure the best possible outcome.

Laser Therapy

Another option for treating spider veins may be laser therapy. This non-invasive procedure uses light from the laser to heat the inside of the vein, making the vein walls sticky and then allowing your body to take the unwanted veins away. Dr. Lloyd uses an Excel V laser to target and close superficial blood vessels.

Many patients combine sclerotherapy and laser therapy to achieve the best possible, lasting results. Dr. Lloyd will talk you through the benefits of each, and together you will determine the best course of treatment. She firmly believes in education and communication, and she will work with you to make sure you are confident and comfortable with your care every step of the way.
