What are spider veins and how are they caused?

Spider veins are threadlike lines caused by tiny superficial veins widening in clusters. Usually there are no symptoms although some people may experience itching or mild pain. Spider veins may be inherited, caused by pregnancy, job or lifestyle when lone periods of sitting or standing are required. Underlying venous insufficiency can also cause spider veins.

What advanced “pinhole” procedures does imaging & interventional specialists offer for varicose veins

Although not an advanced “pinhole” procedure but certainly a “pinhole” procedure! Imaging and Interventional Specialists can inject special chemicals (“sclerosant”) after a small needle is carefully advanced into the spider vein. This causes the spider veins to close off and blood flows into the normal venous channels. Ultrasound is used for larger varicosities but not usually the tiny spider veins which are usually easily seen.
