Dr. Soares provides Sclerotherapy which is considered the best treatment for spider veins on the back and side of the calf and thigh areas. This procedure which has been used successfully for years, involves injecting a saline solution directly into the veins that causes their linings to contract and the veins to disappear. The veins normally fade over a 2 to 3 month period. The entire procedure takes about thirty minutes to complete. There may be mild discomfort from the injection, but this only lasts one or two minutes and delivers superior results for most patients.Sclerotherapy treatments are less painful in the treatment of spider veins than laser spider vein removal. The cost of treating spider veins using sclerotherapy treatments are less expensive than laser spider vein removal. Not all veins respond to sclerotherapy and some may be better treated with our lasers or other procedures, but it is successful in treating fifty to eighty percent of the unsightly veins each session.Advanced Associates in Dermatology serves patients requiring dermatology treatment in Cypress, Tomball, Humble, Kingwood, Spring, The Woodlands, Conroe, Katy, and the greater Houston area.
