Sclerotherapy or Laser Vein Treatment
Sclerotherapy/Laser Vein Treatment
Many people are bothered by the appearance of veins on prominent areas such as the legs or face, and seek treatment to restore a smooth, clear appearance. Many of these treatments are highly effective and minimally invasive, offering aesthetically-pleasing results without painful or lengthy downtimes.
There are several types of treatments available to treat unsightly veins. The type of treatment that will be most effective depends on several factors. Type of veins to be treated (spider vein or varicose vein}, size & pressure (how big are they in diameter), severity or concentration of veins, skin texture & color, and source location of veins involved (for legs it can be thigh, ankle or behind the knee. Veins even appear on the hands, face, breasts, back, and genital areas). Treatment methods vary from collapsing the veins from the inside with laser energy (Laser Treatment) or physically removing the vein, to different methods of Sclerotherapy (injection of a chemical into the veins). All treatment methods can be performed separately or in conjunction to offer the best results.
A consultation with Dr. Orloff will help determine which type of treatment will work best to achieve your desired goals.
