Troublesome spider veins and small varicose veins can be eliminated using sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is the injection of an irritant directly into a vein.
Dr. Barlow routinely uses hypertonic saline (26 times saltier than tears) although stronger sclerosants are available.
Sessions can take as little as ten minutes depending on the number and size of the veins to be treated. Compression stockings should be worn following treatment to maximize the result.
This treatment modality can be combined with laser therapy to treat a broad spectrum of vascular conditions.
