Sclerotherapy Treatment Clinic

Sclerotherapy diagram

Sclerotherapy refers to a procedure involving an injection of a special pharmaceutical agent, called “sclerosant,” into the diseased veins to seal and destroy them. This minimally invasive procedure can be used for different types of abnormal veins but remains one of the methods of choice for the treatment of spider veins and reticular veins. Prior to sclerotherapy, a venous disease responsible for the development of spider veins should be identified and treated first.

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are the blue, red, and purple veins that tend to form near the knees, calves, and ankles. They are caused by dilated blood vessels which are visible since they are closer to the skin.

As with varicose veins, spider veins on the legs are almost never an independent disease but a symptom of a condition called venous insufficiency. Leaving this larger condition untreated, removing spider veins is like trimming the branches of a tree: each removed spider vein will be replaced by several new ones until the root of the problem is discovered.

Our spider vein treatment center in NYC focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of spider veins in NYC and other symptoms and complications of vein disease. We provide a variety of minimally invasive treatments that remove spider veins and prevent them from reemerging.

What is Dornier Flexipulse?

Dornier FlexiPulse is currently the only laser system available for the direct treatment of spider veins (telangiectasia). As opposed to endovenous laser therapy, which is done through a needle inserted into a diseased vein, Dornier FlexiPulse treatment is performed through the intact skin or transcutaneously, with no needles at all. This modality, therefore, is a truly NON-invasive procedure.

While sclerotherapy is usually more suitable for the larger spider veins, the smaller ones are best treated with this transcutaneous laser. It is effective, quick, and painless, with the results being seen immediately. Often, it is used in combination with other forms of venous therapy.

As in all the other cases, it is important to confirm that the condition responsible for the spider vein development, such as stasis venopathy for example, was completely eliminated or had resolved on its own prior to starting this treatment.
