Sclerotherapy

This is the treatment of choice for spider veins or tiny varicose veins. LA Vascular Specialists injects an FDA approved sclerosing agent (Sotradecol or Asclera) directly into the problematic veins in order to close them.

The body will absorb the veins after treatment. We perform sclerotherapy in our office by using  a special vein light. The treatment process usually takes no more than 15 minutes.
