Minimally Invasive Solutions

At Vein Specialist Centers, we offer the latest advancements in sclerotherapy in Long Island, NY, a safe and minimally invasive procedure. Our skilled vein specialists use a fine needle to administer FDA-approved medications like Asclera™ or polidocanol into the affected vein. This specially formulated solution irritates the vein walls, causing them to collapse and be naturally absorbed by the body. This convenient in-office procedure is suitable for treating various types of veins and allows you to resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment.

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is an effective FDA-approved treatment for varicose and spider veins. Our skilled doctors at Vein Specialist Centers administer a specialized solution, typically a sclerosant medication, directly into the affected veins. This solution acts by irritating the vein walls, causing them to adhere together and eventually collapse. As time passes, the body naturally absorbs the collapsed veins, leading to a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the treated area. Our board-certified doctors provide liquid, foam, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. After the procedure, there is no downtime required, and you can continue with your daily routine. To optimize your results, our vein doctor may recommend wearing compression stockings during the healing period.

Customized Treatment for Optimal Results

We believe that each patient deserves personalized care to achieve the best outcomes. During your consultation, our experienced vein doctors will thoroughly evaluate the severity of your vein condition and consider your treatment preferences. By tailoring the sclerotherapy approach to your needs, we ensure you receive the most suitable treatment method.

While sclerotherapy is highly effective for cosmetic spider veins, some patients may require multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. Significant changes can typically be noticed within 6-8 weeks after the initial injection, with substantial improvements in spider and smaller varicose veins following the treatment.

Treatment Options

Liquid Sclerotherapy

Liquid sclerotherapy involves the direct injection of a specialized solution into the affected veins. This treatment is ideal for smaller spider veins, as the solution causes the veins to shrink and gradually fade away. Experience smoother and clearer skin without any downtime associated with this procedure.

Foam Sclerotherapy

Foam sclerotherapy is a highly effective option for slightly larger veins. This treatment is five times more potent than liquid sclerotherapy and delivers remarkable results. By combining small amounts of liquid solution with air, a foam substance is created and injected into the vein using ultrasound guidance.

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a precise and effective option for the targeted treatment of varicose veins that may be difficult to see or larger superficial veins. Our certified technicians and physicians with American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) credentials perform this technique with expertise and precision, ensuring you receive the highest quality care.
