Sclerotherapy Treatments

This process involves injecting blood vessels with a sclerosing solution, a chemical that collapses the vessels, using a very fine needle, sometimes guided by ultrasound. In foam sclerotherapy, the sclerosing agent is mixed with air or carbon dioxide just before injection. In its foam state, the sclerosant can treat larger veins than is possible with liquid sclerotherapy, which affect larger areas of skin than does a spider vein, for example.

Laser Ablation

This is an effective technique for getting rid of varicose veins. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to heat and destroy the saphenous vein which is the underlying cause of the varicose veins. For spider veins just under the surface of the skin, lasers that target the upper layers of the skin can eliminate the veins in one or a series of treatments.  The larger varicose veins that are caused by poorly functioning valves in the saphenous vein can be attacked with endovenous laser treatment (EVLT). Guided by ultrasound, the laser fiber is passed through a catheter directly into the vein, permitting the precise delivery of the laser energy needed to rid the body of the saphenous vein and its incompetent valves.
