Vein Treatment

People opt for vein treatment to improve appearance or to get rid of the pain that these veins can cause or to prevent complications.

Why do people treat their leg veins?

People treat their veins because they look bad and feel bad. They are also a risk factor for leg ulcers and blood clots. 

If you have pain from the veins in your legs, it's a good idea to get them treated so you can continue to live an active lifestyle. Treatment can help alleviate the discomfort you feel at night or after standing for an extended amount of time.*

There are a number of different types of veins that people want treated:

Hand Veins

The treatment of hand veins is covered in detail here.

Spider Veins

These show up on the face and legs at almost any age, but they get more common as the years pass.

Facial spider veins and rosacea are treated with laser and intense pulsed light. Read more here.

Spider vein of the legs are almost always treated by injections (sclerotherapy) as described hereOccasionally transcutaneous laser is used, but it hurts more, costs more, and, inour opinion, doesn't work as well as injections. Laser treatment of leg spider veins is the same as for facial spider veins. Read more here.

Varicose Veins

These veins are unsightly, but more importantly they can cause complications like blood clots and leg ulcers. Treatment of these veins is often medically indicated, not just cosmetic. Varicose veins are treated by endovenous laser or sclerotherapy

This tried and tested procedure has been popular since the 1920s. It uses the injection of various fluids directly into problem veins. This produces injury to the vein with resultant closure and scarring.*

It can be used to treat veins of all sizes, from tiny spider veins to large varicose veins.

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy (Echosclerotherapy)*

Ultrasound machines makes it possible to inject veins that are otherwise undetectable. This technique most commonly involves the injection of a foamy fluid directly into veins under ultrasound guidance. 

The most common vein treated by this technology is the largest superficial vein in the leg (greater saphenous vein). It starts on top of your foot and runs up the inside of the leg to your groin.
