Sclerotherapy

At Boston Vein Care we have a special interest in sclerotherapy. We have pioneered spider vein treatment protocols that achieve the most enduring and cosmetically successful resolution. We rarely use hypertonic saline as it does not provide long-term treatment for spider veins, can be a very painful procedure and we have witnessed skin ulceration from its use at other practices. State of the art infrared visualizing equipment used in Boston Vein Care enables us to see up to 7mm under the skin. This helps us to target more spider veins, as well as locate, and treat the feeder veins.
