No veins on the legs

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure offered at our Hamilton location used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins.

Spider veins (also called telangiectasias) are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They are often red, blue, or purple; and they have the appearance of a spiderweb. They are commonly found on the face and legs.

Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Sclerotherapy involves injecting small amounts of a sclerosing agent directly into the spider vein using a very small needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel wall, therefore causing it to stick together. The procedure, requires no anesthesia. Potential side effects include bruising, swelling, and slight skin discoloration.

Over a period of several weeks the vessel turns into a scar which fades away. Eventually, the vessel becomes barely visible or not visible at all!

Sclerotherapy Process

You can expect an improvement of approximately 80% in treated vessels. The number of sessions required depends upon the severity of the problem. A better assessment can be given during your complimentary consultation at our Hamilton location.

All injections are performed by our qualified medical staff under supervision of Dr. N Powar, our supervising medical director.

Laser therapy for Vein Treatment

Laser therapy is another alternative medical procedure that also can be performed in your physician's office. It is sometimes used as a complement to Sclerotherapy in order to maximize results. It is most effective for spider veins and tiny varicose veins in legs and other parts of the body. For those individuals who do not like needles, this provides an alternative option, though your physician will counsel you on which treatment modality is best given your particular situation. Laser therapy uses a focused beam of light that heats and damages the affected blood vessel, which eventually fades. Potential side effects include minor redness or swelling around the treated area, skin discoloration, blisters, and rarely scarring. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a recently developed treatment for spider veins. IPL delivers pulses of different bands of light to targeted areas.

As with Sclerotherapy, several sessions are frequently necessary for optimal results with laser therapy. Resolution can take anywhere from several weeks to several months after treatment.

What Clients Are Saying

I have been covering up the red vessels on my face with so much make up that my skin began to break out all the time. After 2 sessions of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) my vessels are almost gone. I feel so much better about myself. I hardly wear any make up now and my skin looks bright and fresh.
