Discomfort is minimal as we do not use saline or salt-water. Dr. M uses Asclera, the only name brand FDA approved medication for spider veins.
Sclerotherapy usually takes 20-30 minutes. You can return to normal activity immediately. Most patients experience significant improvement after 1-2 treatments. All treatments are performed by Dr. Malvehy personally.
“I recently went to see Dr. Malvehy for sclerotherapy for my spider veins. I’ve had a couple of treatments before by other Drs and it was very painful. I was hesitant and very nervous to have my legs injected but after meeting Dr. Malvehy he made me feel comfortable and for the first time out of all my experiences sclerotherapy was painless. I highly recommend Dr. Malvehy, he has such a great sense of humor and a soft touch.“ – Jen C.
