What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a used to get rid of varicose and spider veins. A solution (usually glycerin or a salt solution) is injected directly into the vein using a very fine needle. As a result, the solution irritates the inner wall of the vein, causing it to collapse and stick together. Over time, the vessel fades away.

Risks of this procedure depend on the solution injected into the veins.

How can lasers help with spider veins?

Laser treatments are a safe and effective way to treat spider veins and small varicose veins. A small handheld wand delivers pulses of laser energy directly into the unwanted veins. As a result, this heats the blood and seals the walls of the vessels shut. The laser specifically targets the unwanted veins without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. Because treatment has no downtime, you can go right back to your normal activities. It can take 2-3 visits to get maximal results.

What is the risk of laser vein treatment?

Risks of the lasers include burning and skin discoloration (i.e. dark or light spots). This risk is greater in darker skin types or tanned skin. Your dermatologist will help you decide if this is a good option for your skin.
