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.

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.
