Sclerotherapy has been the gold standard treatment to permanently eliminate spider veins for over 50 years. Yet many providers do not incorporate all of the most modern science that makes sclerotherapy treatments safer, painless, and more effective than ever. Any provider who simply injects saline into every visible vein is not utilizing the proper technology available to him/her and is practicing a 1990’s version of Sclerotherapy.
About 20 years ago, we saw the first lasers for vein treatment advertised heavily. However those machines then… and now were never the best option for spider veins of the legs. Lasers are supposed to heat the blood to seal the vein, but every effective wavelength is also well absorbed by the skin, so each pulse was painful, like being burnt by a lit cigarette. And if you were undertreated, nothing would vanish except money from your wallet. Lasers never were, and never will be, the gold standard treatment for spider veins of the legs when sclerotherapy using modern FDA-approved agents like Sotradecol is cheaper, more effective, and less painful.
The emergence of 4 main technologies has made the diagnosis and treatment of spider veins safe and effective…
- Class I compression stockings are included free at your first treatment. Wear them for a week post-treatment every time for faster and better results.
- Foam Sclerosing Agents. Since the early 2000’s, mixing agents with air to create a foam has allowed us to treat higher pressure and wider feeder veins of large spider complexes safely and effectively in fewer treatments.
- Veinlite LED device. Previously, we could not easily identify the large feeders of the visible spider complexes. The Veinlite LED allows us to do this and to track the path of the foam through the vein for the best results.
- Accuvein Laser. Some spider complexes are simply hard to inject and follow. This device projects a green laser on the complex to identify the straightest, widest section for the easiest point of injection and the most efficient treatment.
