Surface Laser Sclerotherapy


#

At Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute, our spider vein doctor offers Surface Laser Sclerotherapy to treat smaller spider veins when appropriate. It is a less invasive technique when compared to other forms of sclerotherapy. It uses laser light instead of needle injections into the vein. During the procedure, laser energy is applied to the skin’s surface directly above the spider vein. Working across the surface of the skin, bursts of light are focused on the spider vein. This causes the blood in the vein to coagulate (thicken and clot) leading to the contraction of the diseased vein.

Surface Laser Sclerotherapy has become increasingly popular in recent years as a non-invasive laser treatment for patients that have surface veins too small to address via traditional sclerotherapy, are needle phobic, have veins that are sclero-resistant or are susceptible to telangiectatic matting.
