Visual Cosmetic Sclerotherapy

Visual cosmetic sclerotherapy is done only on surface veins for their unsightly appearance. FDA approved, and not from a compounding pharmacy, foam or liquid is injected directly into spider veins with a fine needle, causing the walls of the veins to close.

If symptoms accompany spider veins such as heaviness, swelling, aching, cramping, then a medical evaluation will be performed to determine if there is an underlying medical condition causing your spider veins. If an underlying condition is determined, visual cosmetic sclerotherapy can be used in conjunction with CoolTouch™ or ClosureFast to achieve the desired results.

If no symptoms are present, cosmetic sclerotherapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with topical laser.

Topical Laser Treatment

The tiny, red or blue, thread-like spider veins seen on the surface of your skin can often be removed with a topical laser treatment. AVI uses a 1064-nanometer laser that penetrates the superficial blood vessel. The heat of the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel, causing it to collapse and seal. The vessel will slowly disappear and be absorbed by the body.

The directed focus of the tiny laser means that the spider vein is destroyed without damaging nearby, healthy tissue. You will feel a pinching sensation as the laser fires, but topical laser treatment isn’t invasive and you should be back to your normal daily activities without delay.
