What are Vein Treatments?
At Youthtopia, we currently offer two options for vein removal – sclerotherapy injections and laser vein therapy. Both of these options have been proven to erase spider and varicose veins safely and effectively.
For uncomplicated spider and small varicose veins, FDA-approved Asclera® injections are a viable solution. It is injected directly into the affected veins, damaging the walls of the vessels and causing platelets and cellular debris to attach.
Over time, the buildup of these cells and debris causes the vessel to clot, redirecting the blood supply and destroying the affected veins. The body naturally removes the disabled veins, replacing them with healthy tissue.
A typical sclerotherapy session lasts 15-45 minutes depending on the treated area, and you may need to wear special stockings for a short period of time to maintain compression and proper circulation in treated areas.
Laser Vein Therapy
Cosmetically unappealing veins can also be removed with laser treatment. Our Cynosure Apogee Elite® laser utilizes two clinically-proven wavelengths to deliver controlled laser energy quickly and efficiently, minimizing the interruption to your daily activities.
Targeting small veins just underneath your skin surface, the laser light heats the vein, damaging it and causing scar tissue to form. The scar closes the vein, causing it to lose its blood supply and become permanently disabled. Over time, the body will naturally remove the veins and replace them with healthy tissue.
Sclerotherapy and laser vein therapy are standalone procedures but can also be used in conjunction to maximize results. Although treated veins are permanently removed, they may be replaced by new ones in the future. Vein treatment sessions are typically 15 minutes long, and the appropriate treatment plan for you will be based on your individual condition.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Both sclerotherapy and laser vein therapy have proven safety profiles. After sclerotherapy, our medical team will provide you with specific instructions on how long to maintain compression on treated areas and how much you should walk per day in order to prevent blood clots.
The skin may appear slightly red or flushed after laser therapy, but this is a temporary side effect and will subside after a day or two.
