Therapy to Remove Unsightly Veins
As we age, our time in the sun and our physical condition subject us to the appearance of annoying, unsightly spider veins. Spider veins are those small dialated veins that generally appear, close to the surface, on the face or legs.
Ageless Remedies Medical Spa of Alpharetta has two options for the person who wants to return their complexion to a clear, more youthful look.
Laser vein therapy, from the Candela GentleYag, causes the veins to disappear over a period of time. The treatment only takes 15 minutes and you can return to your regular routine (less vigorous physical exertion). Ice or a topical anesthetic are used to numb the area. The patient generally states the treatment feels like the pinch of a rubber band. The number of treatments vary, but usually three to four vein treatments are necessary.
Sclerotherapy is an injectable procedure performed by an Ageless Remedies physician assistant. They inject a sclerosing solution into the vein through a micro-needle. The tiny needles cause very little pain. The solution causes the vein to turn white, then disappear over time. A typical treatment may last for 15 to 20 minutes. Generally, more than one treatment is necessary.
To determine which is your best solution, contact Ageless Remedies Medical Spa of Alpharetta and arrange for your free consultation with one of our physician assistants.
