Nobody likes the appearance of unsightly spider and varicose veins on legs, but fortunately, when they occur, there are solutions. Laser Vein Removal can be an effective treatment to remove these unhealthy veins using bursts of energy. However, the most effective treatment for spider veins is sclerotherapy. At Amoderm, we offer both treatment options individually or combined to better address veins with different sizes and conditions.
In sclerotherapy, the doctor uses a special form of light to visualize the superficial veins of the affected areas and locate the unhealthy veins that should be treated. Then, the doctor uses a fine needle to inject a special solution into the affected veins which will cause them to collapse and stop the flow of blood through them. Then the doctor withdraws the needle and applies mild compression on the treated area to keep the blood from returning to the vessels. Typically in the few weeks following the treatment, most of the collapsed vessels are absorbed by the body and fade away for good.
The treatment can usually be done in less than an hour at the clinic, depending on the number and size of the veins treated. Call us today to schedule your free consultation to chose the best treatment options for skin vein removal!
