Spider Vein Treatments – Sclerotherapy

We offer a wide array of simple procedures to eliminate spider veins and varicose veins. Sclerotherapy procedures eliminate 80% of previously treated, superficial veins. A special kind of solution is injected directly into abnormal veins, destroying the blood vessel. The remains of the vessel are eventually reabsorbed into the body.

This procedure requires a high degree of technical skill and special training. A thorough evaluation prior to the treatment is necessary to avoid side effects, such as discoloration, or the formation of new spider/varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy: Before and After

After treatments with sclerotherapy, spider veins generally disappear in three to six weeks, while varicose veins may take three to four months to respond. Once gone, the veins do not reappear. This treatment does not prevent spider veins or varicose veins from appearing in other areas.

Spider Vein Treatments – Laser and Light Therapy

Laser Therapy and Intense Light Pulse (ILP) use heat to destroy tiny spider veins and small varicose veins. The heat causes scar tissue to form, which eventually closes off the vein, rerouting blood to other, healthy veins. For some patients, this is an appealing alternative to injections. Side effects may include minor discomfort in the treated area, skin discoloration, and the formation of blisters.

Laser and Light Therapy: Before and After

Laser therapy works more slowly than sclerotherapy. More than one session is usually needed to get results, and it can take a year or two for the vein to disappear completely.
