  • $259 for a consultation and two veinwave or sclerotherapy treatments (up to a $900 value)

An initial consultation helps clients choose between sclerotherapy and veinwave. During 30-minute veinwave treatments, vascular specialist Dr. Peter Mann uses a hand piece to target veins on the cheeks, nose, and ears with pulses of thermal energy. The walls of the veins then collapse, vanishing almost instantly. The treatment causes minimal discomfort and virtually no risk of bruising, scarring, or pigmentation. For sclerotherapy, Dr. Mann injects medication into unwanted leg veins, sealing them shut and causing them to gradually disappear over several weeks.

Sclerotherapy: Vanishing Vessels

To learn exactly how injections can get rid of visible veins, read on.

When describing the effectiveness of sclerotherapy to the New York Times in 2009, Dr. Brian Zelickson called it "the gold standard of spider-vein treatment." This nonsurgical procedure helps minimize the appearance of varicose or spider veins by individually injecting them with a saline-based solution, which causes the malfunctioning blood vessels to swell, then collapse, then dissolve over the course of several weeks. Blood is rerouted through the nearby veins and arteries, and although many of these treatments are performed for cosmetic purposes, this redirection may also help to relieve local aching and swelling.

Until the 1940s, physicians employed a number of different methods to trigger the collapse of unwanted veins—including iron- and mercury-based formulas—but these occasionally caused their own problematic side effects. Treatment centers no longer use these solutions; instead, researchers continue to develop inventive new techniques to bolster the efficacy of sclerotherapy procedures. Some of these innovations include injectable foams, which more effectively fill large veins without leaking into the surrounding tissues, as well as ultrasound-guiding technology for more precise injections.

Customer Reviews

The staff was very professional. I felt comfortable. Dr. Mann explained not just the procedure but also adddressed the underlying issue, which not many places take the time to do. I would highly recommend this place.
