Sclerotherapy vs Laser Vein Therapy: Which is Right for Me?

Posted on June 26, 2017 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

As we age, our body’s natural defenses don’t quite work the way they used to. The valves in your veins begin to show the wear and tear from their efforts of regulating blood flow. As the valves deteriorate, blood begins to pool in certain areas of your body rather than flow freely and as a result, your veins begin to look engorged. Varicose veins are more often associated with aches and pains, and they are larger and more pronounced than spider veins. Spider veins form just under the skin, and many people regard them as an unsightly cosmetic problem.

There are a number of therapies to treat unwanted enlarged veins and make your skin appear clearer and more even toned. Sclerotherapy and Laser Vein Therapy are two of the most popular treatment options for the removal of varicose and spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment option which involves a liquid solution being injected into the vein. Over time, the vein collapses and eventually disappears from the surface of your skin. Patients often tell us how beautiful their legs look and feel just a few weeks after a treatment.

Another good way to treat varicose veins and broken capillaries is Laser Vein Therapy. These days, lasers are more powerful and effective than ever before, and the YAG laser system we use is often viewed as the gold standard in Laser Vein Therapy. This laser is designed to remove veins by treating them with an intense beam of light. The laser, when paired with the patented Dynamic Cooling Device and a topical anesthetic, proves to be a well-tolerated therapy for many patients.
