Venous disease is one of the most common and bothersome conditions. It affects millions of Americans and can have a negative impact on the way legs feel and look.

Effectively addressing vein disease requires assessing for and treating any lingering underlying causes as well as changes that occurred at the skin surface.

Once any underlying issues are addressed, varicose veins and spider veins can be safely “cleaned up” by a process known as sclerotherapy.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a technique that involves gently and carefully injecting a safe, effective chemical into the troublesome veins and “convincing” the body to close them off and make them fade away over time.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

The chemicals used commonly across the world to treat varicose and spider veins cause a mild irritation within the vein which tells the body to close off the vein, scar it down and make it shrivel away slowly over the course of weeks to months. In expert hands such as Dr. Rosen, this procedure carries very low risk and is very well tolerated. Dr. Rosen’s technique is so gentle that patients NEVER require any local anesthetic to treat superficial spider and varicose veins!

Don’t Let Vein Disease Progress

The one thing that is for certain about vein disease is that it is in your best interest to treat it sooner rather than later. This is why you should always seek immediate treatment from a vein clinic, as a vein specialist will know how to properly handle each individual case.
