It’s no secret that as we age, certain parts of our bodies don’t always look the same as they did years ago. Not only do we have wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and sagging skin to deal with, but also the appearance of unwanted spider veins on our legs. However, Dr. Goldman and Dr. Dubow want you to know that there is hope with sclerotherapy treatment. This type of vein therapy can erase your unsightly spider veins quickly and easily, leaving you with the beautiful, bare legs that were once lost to age.

What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is the treatment of varicose veins. This procedure works by injecting a special sclerosing agent, Asclera, directly into the veins, making them to shrink and dissolve in only a few short weeks. Today, sclerotherapy is the most effective and common procedure to treat spider veins in Los Angeles. This treatment requires little to no down time following the injection, and most patients feel up to returning to their normal day to day activities as soon as they leave the office.

Side effects following your spider vein treatment are usually extremely minimal, and in some cases patients experience no side effects at all. Most commonly, itching at the injection site or raised, red areas can be seen following treatment. This usually clears up on it’s own after only a few days.

Dr. Goldman and Dr. Dubow can further explain the recovery process with you during an initial consultation or following your treatment.

What Causes Leg Veins?

Leg veins are often times the result of backed up blood caused by weak or damaged veins. In your body, veins are responsible for carrying blood to the heart. In the case of varicose veins, the valves inside become weak, allowing blood to leak and collect where they appear on your body. When the valves continue to leak, this ultimately leads to a bigger and more visible vein.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Generally, the treatment of spider veins is ideal for men or woman who want to regain their legs’ youthful appearance. If you’ve ever felt self conscious about the appearance of your legs due to spider veins, you may be a great candidate to undergo sclerotherapy or vein therapy.

Sclerotherapy is performed in the office and is considered a non-invasive procedure. The number of treatments that will allow you to see your desired results varies from patient to patient, with some only requiring one office visit and others requiring three to five. If you need to undergo multiple sclerotherapy treatments, it’s best to schedule your appointments four to six weeks apart.

If your veins are smaller leg veins or facial veins, another option is the VBeam Pulsed Dye Laser. The VBeam Laser treats vascular (red) skin conditions including rosacea, facial veins, scars, red spots, and small leg veins. Our Vbeam laser, made by Candela, is considered the top-of-the-line in pulsed dye lasers and we are one of the lucky few (less than 6 offices) to have one in the Los Angeles area.
