Fast, nonsurgical treatments reduce the appearance of unsightly spider veins
Tired of hiding your legs because of unattractive red and bluish spider veins? Look to Dr. Donald R. Gilbert at Greenville Vein & Aesthetics Center. He offers two highly effective, nonsurgical procedures that can reduce the appearance of spider veins: sclerotherapy and advanced laser ablation. In some cases, patients can benefit from a combination of both treatments.
Advanced sclerotherapy & laser ablation
For sclerotherapy, Dr. Gilbert uses an FDA-approved solution injected into the spider vein through a microneedle, causing the vein to seal shut. Once the diseased vein is sealed, blood is forced into healthier veins. The treated vein is absorbed and eventually becomes nearly invisible or disappears altogether. For laser ablation, Dr. Gilbert uses Sciton profile laser, whose light safely passes through the skin into the targeted vessel, causing it to fade away.
Dr. Gilbert performs sclerotherapy and laser ablation right in the office and little or no recovery time is needed. Plus there is no scarring, meaning patients can get outstanding cosmetic results. To learn more, call Greenville Vein & Aesthetics Center today.
