Lose Spider Veins in a Flash with Intense Pulse Light Therapy
One of the fastest and safest ways to eliminate spider veins and similar discolorations is through the use of a revolutionary new technology –intense pulse light therapy. Large areas can be treated quickly and easily, with less damage. IPL Photofacials targets spider veins and discolorations deep below the surface of the skin while leaving the outer layer of the skin undamaged.
 
An alternative to Intense Pulsed Light is Sclerotherapy, which are injections of specialized solutions into the spider veins. Sclerotherapy has been around since the 1930s and has proven extremely effective. Our experts perform the procedure in the office and administer the injection with a small needle and syringe. The solution scars the veins and causes them to collapse, hiding their appearance.
 
     
 
     
 
  Treatment Options  
  Spider veins can be treated with injections, surgical removal and laser surgery. You should discuss these treatments with our vein specialists to determine the best choice for your personal vein concern.  
     
  Step 1 - Varicose Vein Screening  
  Using a Doppler Ultrasound at our ACR (American College of Radiology) accredited site, we screen the area for varicose veins. This is performed by an RVT- Registered Vascular Technician.  
     
  Step 2 - Laser Treatments  
  Diode and Yag lasers or IPL Photofacials involve a specific wavelength to target spider veins in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. The treated vein will turn pinkish and lighten immediately after the procedure. The vein then turns brownish and the body absorbs it naturally through the lymphatic system and will be flushed out. This process may take 6-8 weeks.  
     
  Step 3 - Sclerotherapy  
  Sclerotherapy are simply medical grade solutions that are injected into your varicose or  spider veins. The solution scars the veins and causes them to collapse, hiding their appearance.  
 
     
 
     
 
     
 
  Advantages of Sclerotherapy:  
 
  • No downtime
  • Great alternative to light based treatment
  • Long-lasting or permanent results
  • Little to no side effects
