Improving the appearance of Varicose and Spider Veins
MedSpa treatments to help you look and feel your best
Spider veins are very small and very fine red or blue veins. They are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. They can look like a thin red line, tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins can be found on the legs and face and may cover a small or large area.
Reticular veins can also be known as feeder veins. They are the blue and green veins beneath the surface of the skin. Reticular veins enlarge because of increased pressure in the vein. They can be caused by heredity. You may have reticular veins alone but you may also have spider veins at the same time.
Spider and reticular veins can be caused by many factors: heredity, age, posture, and gender. Women are much more likely than men to develop spider or varicose veins.
Our Sclerotherapy treatments are performed exclusively using Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection. On average, 87% of patients were satisfied or very satisfied with their Asclera® treatment
Asclera® is a prescription medicine and is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:
- Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter)
- Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins.
Asclera injections produce immediate results! Because our practice follows strict safety guidelines, there may be a need to perform multiple treatment sessions to cover larger areas.
Your provider will recommend a treatment schedule at your consultation to get you the best results.
Sclerotherapy appointments usually take 30-60 minutes depending on the treatment area.
You must wear graduated compression garments for 2-3 days after treatment of spider veins and 5-7 days after treatment of reticular veins.
For two to three days following the treatment, avoid (if you are uncertain, please ask your healthcare provider):heavy exercise, sunbathing, long plane flight, hot bath or sauna.
At your complimentary consultation, your provider will provide a customized treatment regimen based on your goals.
