Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the correction of Spider Veins with injections using an extremely small needle. We use Polidocanol, which is a sclerosant solution, classified as a chemical detergent. It was approved in 2010 by the FDA as safe. Polidocanol causes the vein lining to scar together obliterating the vein. Polidocanol is less painful because it has local anesthetic properties. This treatment provides excellent results with very low complication rates. Our nurse is very skillful and was trained by Dr. Victoria Vitale-Lewis. Dr. Lewis is the expert in this field and wrote the well known book ā€œ Sclerotherapy of Spider Veinsā€.
