Options We Offer

Electrosurgery

Electrosurgery is the most effective treatment available for reducing or eliminating small spider veins quickly, easily and safely. Minimally invasive, this affordable treatment works well on all skin colouring.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy invovles salt/saline solutions, available in variying concentrations, that are directly injected into the veins. Inside the lumen of the vein becomes "sticky" and closes off the circulation to the specific vein. Over a course of time, the vein diminishes and you get the cosmetic/health results you want. A medical intake and compression stalkings prescription will be made prior to any injections, to ensure safe, and clinically effective results.

NDYAG Laser

Frequently Asked Questions

What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy uses an injection of a special chemical (sclerosant) into a varicose vein to damage and scar the inside lining of the vein. This causes the vein to close. During this procedure, the affected area is elevated to drain blood, and the sclerosant is injected into the varicose vein. The procedure is done in a doctor's office or clinic and takes 5 to 30 minutes, depending on how many varicose veins are treated and how big they are. After the injection of sclerosant is given, pressure is applied over the veins to prevent blood return when you stand up. You may need to wear compression stockings for several days or weeks to maintain the pressure.

What is a Nd:YAG laser?

Nd:YAG is a crystal used as a laser medium for solid state lasers; a Nd:YAG laser is a laser that uses the Nd:YAG laser. These lasers have a wavelength of 1064 nm and have the capability of reaching deper layers of skin tissue than other types of lasers, hence their use in a cosmetic setting.
