Sclerotherapy is a procedure that has saved many patients from undergoing vein surgery. Spider veins or burst capillaries on the face are usually caused by genetics, sudden temperature changes, sunburn, smoking and alcohol. A mild sclerosing solution is injected into the varicose vein using a fine needle. The solution causes the vein walls to close up. Within a few weeks, the varicose veins disappear. Sclerotherapy for facial varicose veins is safe and yields excellent results.
VEIN REMOVAL & TREATMENT IN LA, BEVERLY HILLS, SHERMAN OAKS & WESTLAKE VILLAGE
There is an alternative to sclerotherapy to remove varicose veins. Cutera CoolGlide is a laser that treats superficial facial veins and deeper leg veins without injections. Patients of all skin tones can experience great results without much bruising or blistering. The Cutera CoolGlide system directs pulse of light that causes the blood in the vein to coagulate. The vein is eventually destroyed and disposed of by the body. Blood flow will be channeled to veins deeper below the surface of the skin. Usually one or two treatments are enough to achieve the desired results, but the number of treatments depends on the number, color and size of the veins being treated. There is little or no pain following the treatment. Most patients can immediately resume normal activities after treatment. Most patients see a marked improvement within an average of 4 weeks of treatment.
