Sclerotherapy + Microfoam Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the injection of an FDA/Health Canada approved drug called sclerosant, into the affected vein/s.
Spider veins also called telangiectasias or angioectasias. They are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. They can develop anywhere on the body however, our focus is on spider veins that appear on the lower extremities. When they occur on the legs, they often have underlying venous reflux.
When a sclerosant is injected into the veins it touches the vein walls and they become sticky and irritated. The walls of the veins stick together and the blood can no longer pass through this vessel and your body eventually reabsorbs the vein. Depending on the type and number of veins being treated you may have one or multiple injections per session. Normal activities can be resumed after sclerotherapy. The procedure is performed in the office.
When used cosmetically, sclerotherapy can quickly and easily eliminate the appearance of unsightly spider veins on the legs.
Microfoam Sclerotherapy is the injection of an FDA/Health Canada approved drug called sclerosant mixed with air, into the affected vein/s. When the sclerosant is mixed with small amounts of air it creates a dense microfaom. This is most effective way to treat varicosities that are visible from the surface of the skin and the best option for inoperable veins. Microfoam Sclertherapy can also be performed with ultrasound guidance for the veins that may not be visible from the surface of the skin.
This treatment is quick, effective and relatively painless. There is no downtime and you can resume work and normal daily life right away (some activities limited).
