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)

Using a computer to fill out the new patient forms!

#12016-12-17

I followed the Dr. from Jefferson - Philadelphia. Dr. Ringpfeil is the best dermatologist I have had... and as a psoriasis patient I have had a few of them. For the first time, my skin reacts to treatment. Thank you!

#22017-07-21

efficiency, carefulness, thoroughness very much in evidence.

#32017-01-05

The doctor took a lot of time explaining my treatment and making sure I was comfortable.

#42017-02-15

no waiting

#52017-03-06

I appreciated that Dr. Ringpfeil took the time to thoroughly explain everything we spoke about. She did not simply provide a professional opinion, she provided her opinion and supplemented it with an explanation that made everything clear to me. I felt like I was listened to and interacted with, rather than just spoken at (which has often been my experience with other dermatologists). Thank you!

#62016-12-25

Dr. Ringpfeil listened patiently and explained treatment and diagnosis thoroughly

#72017-12-03

New options! Every dermatologist I've gone to says and does the same things. I'm happy to be trying something new since those other methods didn't work.

#82011-05-19 10:14:50

#92017-05-22

Everyone was very attentive and helpful.

Only the 30 minute wait time really should be shortened.

#22017-02-01

totally satisfied with everything

#42017-11-05

I think I was served most excellently. I cannot thing of anything to add.

#52017-05-16

Can't think of a way to better your service; it was excellent.

#62017-06-08

I have no suggestions. I am very pleased with ever aspect of my care

#72010-10-18 16:25:51

When making the initial appointment and then calling to try to get it moved up (our of fear that I had a melanoma), I didn't think that one of the booking person(s) was particularly helpful or reassuring.

#82017-02-11

Give me a good report!!!!!!
