Sclerotherapy and Endovenous Laser Ablation

Spider veins and varicose veins are caused by abnormal blood flow and weakening of the blood vessel wall in the affected veins. Any condition or activity that puts pressure on the veins—such as gaining weight, and sitting or standing for prolong periods, can contribute to their development, but many are genetically predisposed or have a family history if leg veins.

The most effective treatment of spider veins (smaller blue/purple veins) is sclerotherapy. With this procedure, a tiny needle is used to inject a solution which flushes out a ray of veins. The solution used is called Asclera (we do not use saline). The job of this solution is to injure the vein enough to close the vein and cause it to shrink down and fade away. Compression stockings are needed after this procedure for increased success.

Varicose veins are larger blue veins that tend to bulge. Many times they cause symptoms of leg heaviness, fatigue, heaviness, swelling, itching and restless legs at night. These may indicate further work-up and possibly a more powerful endovascular laser treatment to collapse the vein and alleviate these symptoms.
