Over the years, there has been one primary way for patients in the Stafford area to address unwanted varicose and spider veins and this was with sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is still used today in dermatological practices to help close up diseased or troublesome veins in the legs. A sclerosing solution is injected directly into the veins to close them up and redirect blood flow, eliminating these problematic veins from the body. However, there are times when this method may not be appropriate. This may be difficult in areas where the veins are extremely small or even on the face. A dermatologist may need to seek another method of treatment to address these veins and this is typically achieved with laser vein removal.
Dr. Kenneth Neal is a dermatologist who reviews with his patients the two primary methods of treatment for vein removal, including sclerotherapy and laser therapy. Both are effective but in some cases, laser vein removal may be more desirable. Laser vein removal accomplishes the same goal as sclerotherapy but with laser light. It is less invasive and just as effective, though better suited for veins on areas such as the face. It can also be used for troublesome veins which may not be responding appropriately to sclerotherapy solutions.
Laser vein removal is simple, easy, and fast. Patients can discuss with their dermatologist the cost of treatment and what they can expect before, during, and after the procedure. Our team will answer any questions during the initial consultation appointment and discuss any concerns that may arise. We want our patients to be educated about the procedures they will undergo and to have full understanding as to what can be achieved with today’s dermatological technology.
