Varicose veins and spider veins are diseased veins that have become permanently dilated. They can be treated during an in-office, lunch break procedure. The treatment, called sclerotherapy is done by injecting a small amount of solution (called a sclerotic agent) into a varicose vein. The sclerosing solution irritates the lining of the vein and causes the vein to become temporarily inflamed and, eventually, dry up. The vein is replaced with a fibrous tissue that is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
Laser treatment option
Spider veins may also be treated with a laser.
In this method, an intense beam of light is directed at the spider vein, which obliterates it through the skin. More than one laser session may be needed to obtain the desired results. Sometimes, laser therapy is used in combination with sclerotherapy. At Aesthetic Medical Center we use Cool E-Light therapy: painless, easy, no downtime treatment
