Sclerotherapy is a technique designed to close unsightly spider veins on legs, face or other body areas. Several substances can be injected to cause this outcome. While providing identical results and downtime, detergents/foaming agents are generally considered painless while hypertonic saline injections are somewhat painful. Sclerotherapy is used for the treatment of larger spider veins. It is often followed by sclerolaser treatments which resolve extremely fine vessels that did not take to sclerotherapy.

Depending on the examination, ultrasound may be necessary to exclude reflux, which may hamper treatment success. If reflux is detected, a consultation with a vascular surgeon may be necessary to remove underlying varicosities.

What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

everyone was very pleasant and made me feel comfortable about my situation as well as gave me the hope for relief I was hoping for.

No wait time, very efficient and easy to get in/out during work day.

Dr. Ringpfiel was very attentive; she explained very clearly different treatments and their outcomes and gave me some alternatives I could choose from. I was extremely pleased by the Dr's professionalism, excellence, kindness and attention. Definitely one of the best services I have received! I am bringing my son in 3 weeks!

#32019-08-20

It was a very good experience in all - see you next year!

#42019-03-11

It is clearly evident taht Dr. Ringpfeil is genuinely motivated by listening to your full symptoms, issues and then selecting the approach that is best for you. I scheduled my appt with the hopes of undergoing pricey treatments. Rather than signing me up and taking my check, she insisted that we first address the cause of my problems. Obviously, her goal is to heal the patient, not simply select the treatments that would be most lucrative for her. Impressive.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

Maybe directions as "across from the Lexus place." Have the assistant say there may be a name recall test later, as she introduces herself.

#12010-12-07 10:07:04

all good

#62010-10-14 12:21:49

My advice would be to continue doing exactly what you are presently doing. I had a very good first impression of Dr. Ringpfeil and the practice. Thank you.

#72011-02-07 10:50:14

I'm sending my whole family here. It's wonderful.

#82019-03-26

No room for improvement

#92019-06-15

Keeping me from dying of skin cancer would be good (I will behave and do the checks and annual exam to help out!!!)
