Join hundreds of patients who are free from their embarrassing leg veins!
Unsightly telangiectasias, or spider veins, afflict up to 40% of all women. Superficial spider veins are caused by numerous factors, including pregnancy, age, hormones, and are often hereditary. The providers at the Laser Center at the Peaks use sclerotherapy to successfully eliminate most spider veins. This method of treatment involves injecting problem spider veins with a sclerosing agent, which causes the vessels to contract and collapse, eventually disappearing. The treatment is well tolerated and you get the benefits of legs that look and feel better!
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to clear or improve the condition differs from patient to patient depending upon the quantity of spider veins present. Some patients may require only one session, while others may require more than one session for maximum results.
Is treatment safe?
Side effects are very rare after sclerotherapy. Most commonly, clients will have some localized swelling or itching at the injection site. The injections are performed with very thin needles to limit discomfort during the procedure.
Does sclerotherapy work on varicose veins?
Varicose veins are larger veins which typically do not respond to sclerotherapy. If these are discovered during your consultation, appropriate referrals can be made.
