Revolutionary Vein Treatment

At Vein Specialist Centers, we offer safe and minimally invasive sclerotherapy in NYC, utilizing cutting-edge advancements. Our skilled vein specialists use a fine needle to administer FDA-approved medications such as Asclera™ or polidocanol directly into the affected vein. Witness the remarkable effects of this specially formulated solution as it irritates the vein walls, leading to their collapse and subsequent absorption by the body. This convenient in-office procedure allows you to resume regular activities immediately after treatment.

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy, an FDA-approved treatment for varicose and spider veins, is skillfully performed by our doctors at Vein Specialist Centers. By directly administering a specialized solution, typically a sclerosant medication, into the affected veins, the walls are irritated, leading to their adhesion and eventual collapse. As the body naturally absorbs the collapsed veins over time, the treated area experiences a visible improvement. At our centers, our board-certified doctors offer a range of sclerotherapy options, including liquid, foam, and ultrasound-guided techniques. Following the procedure, there is no required downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities. To optimize your healing, our vein doctor may suggest using compression stockings.

Tailored for Optimal Results

At Vein Specialist Centers, we firmly believe in providing personalized care to ensure exceptional outcomes for each patient. Our experienced vein doctors are committed to evaluating the severity of your vein condition during the consultation, taking into account your individual preferences for treatment. By customizing the sclerotherapy approach to meet your specific needs, we guarantee that you receive the most suitable and effective treatment plan tailored just for you.

While sclerotherapy proves highly effective in addressing cosmetic spider veins, it's important to note that some patients may require multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. Significant improvement typically becomes noticeable within 6-8 weeks following the initial injection, granting you visible relief from spider and smaller varicose veins. Rest assured, our patients commonly report substantial improvements, reinforcing the efficacy of our treatment approach.

Sclerotherapy Treatment Options

Liquid Sclerotherapy

The most basic form of sclerotherapy treatment involves directly administering liquid injections into the affected veins. This method is specifically suited for treating smaller spider veins. By introducing the liquid solution, the veins undergo a process of shrinking and eventual disappearance with no downtime required.

Foam Sclerotherapy

Foam sclerotherapy is an advanced vein treatment using a foam mixture of liquid solution and air. Achieving greater efficacy than liquid sclerotherapy, it effectively treats slightly larger veins. Experience visible improvements and smoother skin with this innovative solution for vascular concerns.

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

Our expert physicians and technicians at Vein Specialist Centers, backed by American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) credentials, excel in ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy in New York City, ensuring superior care for challenging varicose veins and larger superficial veins. We combine advanced techniques with a tailored approach, delivering precise and effective results.
