Vein evaluation.: If you have a few spider veins then sclerotherapy would be the treatment of choice. If you have many spider veins then you should consider having a venous evaluation with a venous reflux ultrasound to see if you have underlying reflux (leaking vein valves) which may be the cause of the spiders. A vein specialist would be able to evaluate you.
