Sclerotherapy

Get rid of spider veins and other visible veins with sclerotherapy treatments by the experts at Yaletown Laser Centre in Vancouver, BC.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work? 

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure performed to reduce the appearance of spider and reticular veins. This involves injecting a sclerosing agent into the affected veins, causing them to collapse.

Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective reticular vein treatment and spider vein treatment, which are those small blue, purple, and red vessels that twist and turn under your skin surface. Spider vein treatments can boost-self esteem through lessening their appearance.

  • Quick – Treatments lasting between 20 and 30 minutes
  • Safe – Performed and improved for over 70 years
  • Effective – 60 to 80% reduction in vein appearance with each treatment
  • Little downtime – Most can resume normal daily activities immediately

 

Am I A Good Candidate For Sclerotherapy? 

Sclerotherapy is safe and effective for those with cosmetically-undesirable spider or reticular veins and ARE NOT pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
