Sclerotherapy (spider veins)
Sclerotherapy Northridge, CA
In the past, spider veins were treated either by surgery or by a process called sclerotherapy. In sclerotherapy, the doctor would inject the veins with a substance that narrowed them, causing them to shrink and die from loss of blood. But today there’s an even faster and simpler way to deal with spider veins. Intense pulsed light therapy uses lasers to thicken the blood inside the veins, which reduces blood flow and makes them shrink and fade as blood is rerouted through healthy vessels. The process is quick — a session takes only about 30 minutes — and non-invasive, which means no needles, surgery, or bandages will be needed. Recovery time will also be minimal, and there’s no need to take time off to heal.
