Safely Removing Spider Veins for Volusia and Flagler Counties
Spider veins/capillaries are small, red, purple and blue vessels that twist and turn and are easily visible through the skin. They are most often seen on the legs and face. Causes can include, among other things; heredity, occupations that involve a lot of standing, obesity, hormonal changes, the use of birth control pills, and sun damage.
Our Lumenis® YAG and laser technology is absorbed by the blood, changed to heat and the vein/capillary is destroyed. You do not have to make changes to your normal activities or need to wear any special hosiery. There is only a little discomfort with this procedure and larger areas can be worked on at each session.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together and the blood to clot. Over time, the body absorbs these tissues and the vein fades from view.
Prior to sclerotherapy you will have an initial consultation with Dr. Long who will decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
For best results, special hosiery must be worn for two weeks after this procedure is performed.
