Dr. Rose’s reviews on Healthgrades
What is the cost of sclerotherapy? Very simple, Sclerotherapy costs start at $250 per leg. Touch-up or follow-up is $100.
Sclerotherapy is a very popular procedure used to treat deficient blood vessels. Medicine is injected, using a very small gauge needle, into the veins that act as an irritant of the inner vein walls, causing closure of the treated spider vein. Most patients require multiple sessions, however, the number of treatments is based on your specific condition.
Over time, the appearance of spider veins fade from sight, leaving you with clearer, healthy looking legs. Your spider vein specialist is able to treat more than one vein at the same time.
Together we’ll get you to love your legs!
Our state-of-the-art Pulsed Dye Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) delivers an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by specific blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas in the dermis depending on the condition being treated. Factors such as the age, color and type of lesions, as well as the location on the body, all determine whether lesions can be removed. The Harmony DYE VL we utilize will help fade vascular lesions to look like normal skin.
Geneticists recently identified the genetic marker that causes port wine stains, or birthmarks. Occurring in about 3 out of every 1,000 births, port wine stains are enlarged capillaries that produce purplish-red stains on the skin. Rarely causing an health issues, port wine stains occasionally grow thicker or bumpy over time. Laser treatments are now a routine procedure for the removal of many types of vascular lesions, including hemangiomas, vascular malformations such as port-wine stains, telangiectasias, venous lakes and angiomas. Multiple treatments are required for optimal results. On average, most patients with port wine stains need at least 12 treatments, some need 18, and we’ve treated many patients with more than 25 treatments. It is rare to completely clear the stain.
Some redness, slight swelling may be present in the area that has been treated, however this should subside within a few hours. Bruising may also occur.
You will be given instructions on post treatment care, including keeping the treated area clean, using at least an SPF 15 sunscreen when you go outdoors.
Occasionally, spider veins will appear on the face, called Facial Telangiectasia. These are small, red or purple blood vessels that can be caused by a number of skin conditions, including sun damage, heredity, rosacea, hot and spicy food, exercise or emotions. Our new laser penetrates deep down and is absorbed by the cells in the vessel wall and the blood causing coagulation and seals off the blood flow. The vessel walls then collapse and eventually dissolve.
Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow to the heart. Our new vascular treatments offer effective, non-invasive solutions that close these veins and reduce or even eliminate their appearance. A variety of technologies are used to target the affected blood vessels beneath the skin, leaving you with smooth, clear skin and renewed confidence. The treatments are safe and effective and provide reliable, long term results.
Laser treatment to eradicate spider veins and small varicose veins with a unique wavelength of light is now possible. This non-invasive laser vein treatment utilizes a long pulse of light laser energy to destroy the defective vein altogether. The wave energy targets the area under the skin’s surface so that the top layer of skin is left completely intact and untouched. The vein absorbs the laser energy and then immediately collapses, with an immediate visible washing out of the vessel.
Advanced fluorescence technology (AFT) and cutting-edge laser technology make it possible to reduce and even eliminate your problematic veins, sometimes in just one sitting. Depending on the severity of your case, Dr. Rose may recommend up to three sessions, but the results are immediate and long-lasting. Fight the signs of aging the easy way and eliminate ugly or painful varicose or spider vein abnormalities with the most effective laser treatment. Our laser vein treatment is safe for all skin types, pain-free, and non-invasive with virtually no side-effects!
