Leg Vein Treatments

Sclerotherapy is a technique used to treat unwanted leg veins. There are numerous solutions that can be injected directly into spider veins on the legs. The physicians at Tribeca Park Dermatology use solutions of either concentrated saline, glycerine, or Asclera (polidocanol) to cause irritation locally inside the injected vessels to cause them to collapse. The treatment is safe and effective, usually requiring 2-3 treatments at 6-8 week intervals.

The ClearScan laser can also be used to treat visible leg veins. This laser uses infrared energy to precisely treat visible spider veins and other vascular lesions. Spider veins and other unwanted red spots are preferentially heated by the laserŐs energy and become less noticeable following treatment.
