Treatments for Leg Veins
Primary options for small and superficial veins on the legs include both laser and sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive injection treatment for smaller varicose veins called reticular veins and spider veins. (Large varicose veins are generally treated with endovenous laser, a surgical procedure that is performed by vein specialists).
A special medicine is injected into the vein that causes it to shrink. The inner lining of the vein is injured by the medication action. This messages the body to trigger natural resorption of the vein. This process can take weeks or months depending on the number and size of the veins present.
At Total Dermatology Dr. Pilest uses the agent Asclera, known for its fast action, effectiveness and preference by patients.
