Don’t be scared by spider veins


  • Spider veins are common, but they don’t have to be scary.

  • In fact, there are outpatient options for removing spider veins.

  • These procedures are highly effective and require no downtime.

  • Treatments are also available for varicose veins, which are larger and deeper than spider veins.

  • Varicose veins can also cause discomfort and make legs feel heavy.

  • Mount Nittany Physician Group Cardiology’s Vein and Vascular Clinic offers outpatient procedures to treat both spider and varicose veins.
