Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure offered to our Hannon clients at our Burlington 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.

Before and After Sclerotherapy

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 Burlington location serving Hannon clients.

All injections are performed by our qualified medical staff under supervision of Dr. McDonald, 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.

I was a tad nervous when I booked an apt for skin tag removal, not knowing what to expect, but from the minute I walked in I started to relax. It was my first visit, and I was greeted warmly and professionally by Sharon. Sue came to welcome me and walked me back to the procedure room. Sue explained the process, and made the whole experience comfortable and pleasant. I recommend Laser Aesthetics and would return for other needs/procedures without hesitation. Thank you Sue and Sharon!
