No: Some activities, such as putting up drywall or painting, may be a better outlet for someone with a diy attitude. Medical treatment is best handled by a board certified physician. Facial spider veins are typically easily treated with a specialized laser or ipl see your local phlebologist or dermatologist. Put the needle down and back away slowly. :).

See a physician now: That having been said, 1-sided leg pain/swelling in the setting of: active cancer; immobilization;post-surgery&bedridden;localized swelling in area of deep veins; entire leg is swollen; calf swelling >3cm; pitting edema on one leg only...All these (& more) speak to a high likelihood of having a dvt. The more of these (wells) criteria, the higher likelihood. See a doc now; you may need an ultrasound.

A few ways...: 1st, find the right "you" to remove them: a board-certified phlebologist. Your doc needs to do a history and exam to see if spiders are an isolated problem or a sign of underlying issues that need to be treated 1st. Spiders are generally injected with sclerosants (many varieties exist, detergent sclerosants are commonly used now). Those too small to be injected can be treated with laser/ipl.
