Eliminate unsightly veins which commonly develop on the face, legs, and hands.
Non-surgical vein treatments get rid of unsightly veins by causing the veins to collapse and be absorbed by the body.
- Sclerotherapy involves injections of a solution into the unwanted veins using a fine needle. The solution (made with substances such as saline or glycerin) causes the lining of the veins to swell and stick together. This simple, effective varicose and spider vein treatment involves minimal discomfort and has been in use for over a hundred years.
- Laser vein therapy, which is most effective on the face and small spider veins, causes the veins to collapse by heating up the pigment in the blood that is concentrated in the veins. Treatments create mild discomfort with each pulse of the laser and can be performed without anesthetic.
Treatments take approximately 30 minutes to one hour to complete, depending on the number of areas being addressed.
Topical anesthetic can be used for enhanced patient comfort.
These are outpatient treatments which may be performed in the physician’s office.
