At our Miami dermatology practice, we offer the latest technologies and techniques to gently and safely improve the appearance of unsightly leg veins. Leg vein injections, also known as sclerotherapy, effectively remove both purple-blue and pink-red veins from the legs and thighs. In contrast to hypertonic saline which can cause burning and stinging discomfort upon injection, Asclera (polidocanol) and glycerine can be introduced into the vessels with minimal discomfort. Patients can expect improvement after each session, but optimal results are typically seen after 2 to 3 treatments.
Another exciting treatment option is laser vein treatment with the Excel V by Cutera. The KTP or Nd:YAG laser light energy is used to safely treat the unwanted leg veins. In this video of Dr. Green performing the treatment, you can see how simple and effective it is.
No anesthesia is used with either the injections or laser, as both procedures are very well tolerated. Please schedule a consultation with a dermatologist in Miami our Miami office to determine which therapy is most appropriate for you.
