Telangiectasia, also known as spider veins, may be caused by obesity, genetics, hormonal changes, blood clots, as well as certain medications and medical conditions. Spider veins are typically purple, blue, or red and may be easily seen through the skin as they branch out on the face and body. Our seasoned MedSpa team offers sclerotherapy to minimize or eliminate the appearance of spider veins on the face or body. A minimally invasive treatment with no recovery time needed, sclerotherapy can help you get a more even skin tone that you can show off.

"This place is tucked away just off the 5 and Santa Fe drive. The atmosphere when entering falls more on the side of medical office than med spa; it emotes a well decorated, clean, cozy, professional, vibe. Refreshments and snacks are available while you wait, and staff is friendly. Definitely a boutique medical office experience. I was extremely happy with the level of care and attention I received from front desk staff and medical staff alike. I received some cosmetic services that were easily, knowledgeably, and well administered, and will definitely be returning. The prices alarr competitive, reasonable, and appropriate. I was so happy with my results, and the entire experience!"- H.A. / Yelp / Jul 10, 2019

"I have been going two kind health for a year and the person I see is Annie. She is a health coach I came in for sculpting and Doctor Nana said I think that you need something different and she recommended Annie and I have been so thoroughly thrilled in the 12-month I changed my habits I have reduced my weight from 194 to 157 today. She helped me to look at things differently and I'm still working on myself and I'm doing other things but she gave me the guidance that kind of got my brain clicked in to take better care of myself I'm very proud of her and she is a very patient person and she did not push me. And in May I just had my 75th birthday and for me to change like this at this time in life is not quite a miracle but maybe just short of one. I do give a lot of the credit to Annie for her help so if you want somebody to be your health coach about things that are not necessarily exactly Medical but please call in and go by and see them it's a really fabulous office just like other people have reviewed the front desk staff it's nice and clean and presentable and very soothing that helps the process from the minute you walk through the door. Karen gives great big kudos to everyone there and especially thanks Annie"- K.E. / Yelp / Jun 20, 2019
"I LOVE this place! Nirvana...from the front desk people who were SO helpful, without one ounce of pretentiousness, to my practitioner, who I have been going to for YEARS, April Demaggio. Dr. April is a magician when it comes to making you look good and the icing on the cake is that she ya kind, realistic, and will explain your options and best way forward based on what you can afford. She is not trying to "rob you" but truly cares about you, which is why I drive an hour to see her. You can't go wrong with this place...I am thrilled!"- V.D. / Yelp / May 20, 2019
Sclerotherapy is a good option for men and women who are bothered by small to medium blood vessels that are visible through their skin. Generally, these spider veins are most visible on the legs, so patients avoid shorts, swimsuits, or other clothing that do not cover their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy must be in good overall health before their procedure to prevent complications or reactions. Patients should not be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
Sclerotherapy will be done in one of our treatment rooms quickly and with no anesthesia. The spider veins being addressed will be marked, and the skin will be cleaned. A fine gauge needle will be inserted into the vein and the solution will be applied. After removing the needle, a bandage will cover the injection site to stop any minor bleeding. This process will be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.
What to Expect
Once you are done with sclerotherapy, you can leave our office to continue all normal activities. You may have some swelling, redness, or bruising in the treated areas, but this will usually fade on its own. Compression garments will be recommended to help your blood circulation after your procedure for faster, better results. It may take some time for the treatment to work, but eventually, the treated spider veins should shrink, become white, and then fade or disappear. You may require two or more sessions to achieve optimal results, but most patients are pleased with the improvements after the first treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does sclerotherapy cost?
The cost of sclerotherapy will depend on the number of veins being treated, the size of the vein(s), and the number of treatments needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Once we have developed a custom treatment plan, we can estimate your costs.
What's the difference between sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments?
Sclerotherapy utilizes a specialized solution to target veins while a laser vein treatment uses light-based technology. Sclerotherapy is ideal for medium to large veins while laser vein treatments are great for spider veins.
Can I get sclerotherapy on my hands and face?
Sclerotherapy can address spider veins, vascular blemishes, broken blood vessels, and varicose veins on your face and hands. During your initial visit, we will assess your areas of concern and determine whether sclerotherapy can be used safely to treat the vein. If we believe that sclerotherapy is not a good option, we will discuss your alternatives.
How long should I wear compression stockings after sclerotherapy?
Our MedSpa team will talk to you about how long you should wear compression garments after sclerotherapy. The garment is designed to aid in blood circulation so the vein remains closed and to minimize bruising. It's best to wear your garment anytime you are seated for a long period of time.
