What’s the Best Way to Remove Spider Veins?

Do you feel self-conscious about the appearance of spider veins on your legs? Have you tried different creams to get rid of spider veins, but it just didn’t work?

If that sounds familiar, then it’s time to find out about the best way to remove spider veins: Sclerotherapy.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses an FDA approved medication injected into the veins to irritate their walls. This causes them to seal shut so that they can’t carry blood and you don’t see them!

That means the offending spider veins disappear completely, leaving behind clear, vein-free skin.

Dr. Dohner has trained with the nation’s experts in spider veins and uses advanced techniques and equipment including foam sclerotherapy to ensure the best possible outcome with fewer sessions.

How Many Treatments Will I Need to See Results?

Most people will need to have at least three sclerotherapy treatments to see their best results. You may need more or less, depending on the size and location of the spider veins. Results can usually be seen within three to five weeks after each sclerotherapy session.

The first step is to schedule an in-person consultation with one of our highly trained providers at New York Skin & Vein Center located in Oneonta, NY, serving the surrounding New York City areas with additional offices in Norwich, Binghamton, and Cobleskill.

Am I a Good Candidate for Sclerotherapy Treatments?

You’re a good candidate for sclerotherapy treatments if you’re bothered by the appearance of spider veins. You should also be willing to commit to at least three sclerotherapy sessions to see results. 

Sclerotherapy is safe for all skin types and tones, making it a truly versatile treatment for anyone who wants to get rid of spider veins.

Sclerotherapy is not an ideal treatment for varicose veins which requires other treatments.
