Vein Therapy

We have 2 FDA-approved methods of removing leg veins (varicose veins, spider veins, etc.)

  • Sclerotherapy is the gold standard for vein removal. It is quick and comfortable. After your treatments, the veins will resorb into the body and disappear after 2 weeks to 2 months, depending on the size of the vein. This can be used on veins smaller than 5mm (the diameter of a pencil eraser).
  • 1064 Yag laser: We have the latest in laser technology to remove superficial cosmetically undesirable leg veins. One treatment is all that is required.

What are the benefits of vein therapy?

Spider veins and varicose veins can cause a number of problems, including aching or cramping in the legs and discomfort when standing for long periods of time. They also make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Vein therapy at Bloom Medical Group can help improve your symptoms and provide the confidence needed to show your legs again. Patients choose to work with our expert team because we offer:

  • Minimally invasive solutions: We use the latest technology to deliver treatments that cause minimal discomfort.
  • Custom treatment plans: No two patients are alike. That's why we create personalized plans tailored to your needs.
  • A comfortable environment: We offer a calm and inviting environment where you can relax and feel at ease.

Who is a Candidate for Vein Therapy?

Bloom Medical Group will perform a comprehensive evaluation to ensure your candidacy for vein therapy. We take into account factors like the size and location of your veins as well as current symptoms before creating a custom treatment plan. Please inform us of any medications you are currently taking, as well as any health conditions that might contraindicate treatment. Our goal is to ensure your safety and comfort while providing optimal results.

What should I expect after?

Following sclerotherapy, you may leave our office to resume your daily routine. You may have some redness, bruising, or swelling in the areas treated, but this should heal on its own. Compression garments will be recommended by Dr. Mohammedi to help your blood circulation following your treatment for faster, better results. It may take a while for the sclerosing solution to work, but eventually the treated blood vessels should shrink, become white, and then fade or disappear. You may want at least two sclerotherapy sessions to achieve best results, but most people are pleased with their results after one session.

If you undergo laser vein removal treatment, you may notice bruising, swelling, and redness, but these side effects should dissipate within 7 – 10 days. For faster healing, compression or support garments may be worn to encourage your blood circulation. It's important to avoid prolonged exposure to UV rays and you are encouraged to use sunscreen on treated skin. Some patients see visible improvements right away but the timing of results will vary for each patient. During your consultation with Dr. Mohammedi, realistic expectations will be reviewed along with suggestions on how many treatments necessary to get your best results. More spider veins will likely appear over time, so more sessions may be performed as needed.

Vein Therapy FAQ

Does sclerotherapy and laser vein treatment hurt?

The only discomfort most patients feel during a sclerotherapy treatment is the pinch of the needle — the treatment itself isn't painful. There may be minor discomfort or slight bruising at the injection site afterward, but patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Because an anesthetic is used before a laser vein treatment begins, most patients don't experience any discomfort. If they feel anything at all, it can be described as a slight tingling or stinging sensation.

How much does sclerotherapy typically cost?

How much sclerotherapy costs depend on the number and size of the veins treated, along with other factors. During your consultation at Bloom Medical Group, Dr. Mohammedi will examine your veins and talk to you about your goals. He will then create a personalized vein therapy plan and be able to estimate your cost for treatment.

How is sclerotherapy different from laser vein treatments?

Sclerotherapy makes varicose veins shrink and disappear by injecting them with a special solution. Laser vein treatments use light energy to coagulate the vein causing it to be absorbed by the body over time. For medium to larger-sized spider and varicose veins, sclerotherapy is often a better option. Laser vein treatments are more commonly used for smaller vessels, typically in the facial area.

Can I get sclerotherapy on my hands and face?

Yes, you can. Sclerotherapy is effective in reducing the number of vascular blemishes and varicose veins on the hands and even the face. During your consultation with Dr. Mohammedi, he will assess your veins and decide if sclerotherapy or a laser vein treatment is the best course of action.

How long will I need to wear compression stockings after sclerotherapy?

Dr. Mohammedi or a member of his staff will talk to you about aftercare and how long you'll need to wear compression stockings. These will help ensure the treated veins remain closed and improve blood circulation. Your time may vary, but the average time to wear compression socks is about two weeks.
