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 can we do better?

(answers:373)

The lock on the door of the unisex bathroom is a little challenging in that you don't know whether it is locked or not. This was a little unnerving.

#42011-06-02 13:39:55

Well basically there is no need because your doing a very good job.

#52010-10-04 16:54:13

My only complaint is that I work and live (1 mile from) Center City, PA and I wish the office (Dr. Ringpfield) had weekend or later hours. Dr. Heckman was great but she cannot assist me with my cosmetic issues. Overall - like the office and professionalism.

#62011-08-10 18:44:27

Tea? Just kidding! Everything was great.

#72010-10-26 10:16:13

it's a little thing, but when you enter an office and ask the receptionist attending to you how are you, she say fine, but does not inquire how you are, and is not engaging, I just think its rude.

#82021-06-23

all good

#92010-10-14 12:21:49

Nicer chairs in office
