Spider Vein Removal with Sclerotherapy

Scrolling through your Instagram feed, you’d almost think humans naturally have perfectly smooth, flawless skin. Of course, that’s just the effects of digital editing. Most of us have lumps, bumps, scars, and a variety of other imperfections. And for the most part, we accept a few blemishes here and there. But spider veins are another matter. They’re much more noticeable, and if you have spider veins they might bother you significantly.

Fortunately, medical science does provide us a a solution for spider veins. Sclerotherapy allows us to safely and easily remove spider veins for many patients, with a minimally invasive and quick procedure.

How does sclerotherapy work? Most often used on legs, sclerotherapy injects a solution into your troubling spider veins. This solution irritates the blood vessel lining and forms a scar. But in this case a scar is a good thing! The scar closes off the vein and improves its appearance.

Is sclerotherapy right for me? While sclerotherapy treatment works well for many people with spider veins, it’s not appropriate for everyone. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, have an active deep vein thrombosis or superficial vein thrombosis, or are unable to get out of bed, sclerotherapy is not safe for you. In some cases we can’t do sclerothrapy if the vein in question might be required for a future surgical bypass procedure.

We should also discuss your expectations before we get started with sclerotherapy. The procedure works well for improving the appearance of spider veins, but might not completely eliminate them.

How invasive is sclerotherapy? The treatment is only as invasive as a needle! Your doctor might also use ultrasound to locate the right vein. The entire procedure only takes about 30 to 45 minutes, but we might ask you to rest a bit afterward to rule out a bad reaction to the injected solution. After that, you can drive yourself home and return to normal activities. Support hose or compression wraps should be worn for three to seven days after the procedure, and we will advise you on other precautions you should take.

Most people respond well to sclerotherapy, but your case is unique. We invite you to make an appointment with us for a personal examination, and together we can decide if this is the right treatment for your spider veins.

Easy and Effective Acne Scar Removal

Perhaps your days of battling acne are long over, but you’re reminded of that time whenever you look in the mirror. Acne scars often stick around no matter what you do, and can negatively impact your self image and confidence. Luckily, you don’t have to simply resign yourself to seeing those scars forever. We have ways to minimize their appearance, so that you can achieve a smoother complexion.

Secret RF delivers a radio frequency via microneedles, straight into the deeper layers of skin. This energy prompts the skin’s healing process, helping to address even older acne scars. Microneedling has been used for ages, to treat scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, but the addition of radio frequency makes this acne scar treatment much faster and more effective.

And no, you don’t need to schedule lots of down time or plan for discomfort. Secret RF acne scar removal can be accomplished in a fast, 20-minute office appointment. After two treatments, most patients begin to notice a difference in their scars’ appearance. But because healing is gradual over time, three to four sessions are usually recommended for best results. You will continue to see your skin heal even after the last session, and you will reach your final results about three months afterward.

Best of all, Secret RF is a very comfortable acne scar removal treatment. You can go right back to your regular activities afterward, and most patients report feeling very comfortable afterward.

Everyone’s skin is a bit different, so we should discuss Secret RF in more detail to determine if the treatment is right for you. We can answer your questions and help you learn what to expect from your acne scar removal sessions. Just give us a call to schedule a consultation, and together we will decide upon a course of action that helps you look and feel your best.
