AscleraSclerotherapy & Spider Vein Treatment

Many people consider their legs to be one of their best physical attributes.  Unfortunately, spider veins and varicose veins can make people self-conscious and embarrassed to wear shorts, bathing suits, or dresses.  Luckily, simple, safe, and effective treatments for these cosmetically undesirable veins exist.

At South End Dermatology & Skin Care, our physicians are experts at treating spider veins.  We use multiple treatment options, depending on the size and extent of the vessels.  Sclerotherapy remains a gold standard treatment for reducing spider veins on the legs.  Our experts inject small amounts of solutions, which irritate the blood vessels, causing them to shrink down or even disappear completely.  The treatment is safe and effective, with great improvement seen even after just one treatment.

Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy and is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins: Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter) & Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins.

Our staff is also experts at using laser technologies to treat dilated blood vessels.  Our physicians are Board-certified Dermatologists, who have also completed additional fellowship training in laser surgery.  Dilated blood vessels on the face and body can be gently heated using these lasers, in order to cause them to shrink down and disappear.  Depending on the size, shape and extent of your dilated veins, our experts can discuss the treatment options and help you to decide the best choice to reduce those unwanted blood vessels and rejuvenate your skin.
