Sclerotherapy and Vein Treatment
Sclerotherapy is a highly effective procedure designed to address spider and small varicose veins, providing relief and enhancing the appearance of your legs.
The procedure is convenient, affordable and is done in-office to fit into your schedule. There is little or no down time.
During the in-office procedure, our experienced dermatologists will begin by carefully identifying the problem veins. A specialized chemical solution will then be skillfully injected directly into these veins. This solution triggers a controlled reaction within the vein walls, causing them to collapse and eventually seal shut. As a result, blood flow is redirected to healthier veins, improving overall circulation and reducing swelling. Over time, the treated veins are naturally absorbed by the body, leaving your legs looking smoother and revitalized. Our patient-centric approach ensures that your comfort is prioritized, and you’ll experience little to no downtime, allowing you to seamlessly resume your daily activities

Some patients may experience minor discomfort or temporary bruising at the injection site, but these effects typically subside quickly, allowing you to resume your daily activities with minimal downtime.
