Women and men have always disliked the spidery, or varicose veins on the lower legs and ankles. These individuals avoid wearing shorts or capris, and this issue can be very frustrating during warm weather and vacations.
Dr Martin offers sclerotherapy for any individual seeking permanent removal of these unsightly veins. His staff provides the knowledge and skills to perform this simple office procedure, and have safely treated many patients with very satisfying results.
Spider veins, reticular veins (deeper but not raised) and many varicose veins (raised, ropey and often painful) are treated by this technique.
The procedure involves tiny injections with hypertonic saline (salty water) into the vein. This solution irritates the inside walls of the vein, which causes the vein to collapse, thereby preventing any blood from flowing through it. The body absorbs this along with the clot that is formed over time. The fee is determined by the number of syringes used. Some veins actually spread like branches on a tree, and can clear with fewer injections.
