Make spider veins a thing of the past! Gilchrist Aesthetic and Medical Dermatology offers leg vein treatments to eradicate unsightly spider veins safely and thoroughly with a minimally invasive procedure.
Spider veins are small dilated blood vessels which usually appear on the legs. Although spider veins are not harmful to your health, they frequently cause people to be self-conscious when wearing shorts or bathing suits. Spider veins are not needed for your circulation, so they can be safely eliminated with a procedure called sclerotherapy.
How does it work?
The severity of the leg veins is a determining factor in how many treatments the patient will need. Nevertheless, our approach is proven effective without the use of invasive surgeries.
Dr. Gilchrist offers sclerotherapy, the injection of a sclerosing agent into the veins. The agent, which is called Asclera®, causes irritation inside of the vein so that it closes off and will no longer be visible.
Although lasers are used to treat red spider veins effectively on the face, they are less successful when treating the legs. Sclerotherapy is still considered the gold standard of treatment for spider veins on the legs.
