Sclerotherapy

Treatment for:

Veins and vessels

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the method of treating unsightly veins and it can also be used to treat smaller veins that are often called spider veins. It is the process of injecting a solution into the vein.  The Rosenthal Clinic offers both Sclerotherapy and laser treatment options for certain conditions.

Spider veins

These are tiny veins that can be dark red or dark blue in colour. They are often seen in the legs and look like the branches of a tree or can resemble a spider’s web. They are found close to the surface of the skin and can be present on the face and occasionally they can also be found on other parts of the body. Only larger Spider veins large enough to be injected are treated by Sclerotherapy.

Dr. Rosenthal may assess your veins during your consultation and determine if they can be  treated at The Rosenthal Clinic. If you are suffering from pain or advanced leg vein conditions, please contact your physician and request a referral to a vein specialist.  Dr. Rosenthal treats veins for cosmetic purposes only. Some veins are too small for adequate treatment using a needle and therefore our laser therapy may be recommended over Sclerotherapy.
