650-microsecond laser technology is the state-of-the-art technology for treating spider veins. Now the practitioner has the power of 650-microsecond 1064nm technology with uniquely high efficacy in just 1 to 2 treatments, yet unprecedented levels of treatment safety thanks to the unique pulse duration.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting a sclerosing solution directly into the small veins. As the solution comes into contact with the blood vessel, it irritates the blood vessel and causes it to seal off so that blood can no longer pass through the vein. After several weeks, many of the treated vessels will visibly disappear. Dr. Metelitsin uses Acelera (Polidochol) for spider veins treatments.
