Treatment for Spider Veins
Do you have spider veins in your legs that keep you from feeling comfortable about your appearance? Sclerotherapy may be the treatment for you. Addressing your unsightly leg veins begins with a consultation to evaluate your specific condition in order to make the appropriate decision regarding your treatment.
Sclerotherapy is the gold standard for treating most unwanted cosmetically unattractive spider veins in your legs. Leg vein laser treatment (applied externally to the skin overlying your leg veins) is less effective than sclerotherapy except in cases where the veins are so small that there is no needle made small enough to fit inside the vein.
The procedure involves injecting a sclerosant with a tiny needle into the affected veins. At your consultation, you will be educated about the process, what to expect during and after treatment, post procedure activity, the need to wear compression stockings post procedure for a prescribed amount of time, and possible need for further treatments.
As our patient, you are our first priority and our goal is to make sure you get the appropriate evaluation, leading us to the best treatment choice for you. If history and physical exam indicate that further evaluation is needed, you will be referred to a board certified vascular surgeon before proceeding with treatment.
