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.

Clear information about treatment options which had not been offered in the past. It is possible that these treatment options are new, but it is also possible that the physician is especially knowledgeable.

I think that you should just mkae the vists a little bit quicker, and thats all.

I had an appointment for a consulation for sun damage. Unfortunately, I need to see either a doctor or PA for my issue and this was not included in my appointment, so I need to make another trip. It is difficult for me to carve time out of my work day to take care of personal needs, so this is creating an inconvenience for me. I would have preferred to had the complete consultation done in one appointment.
