Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for varicose and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution into the vein, causing it to scar, and rerouting blood to healthier veins. The treated veins then collapse and are reabsorbed into nearby tissue and fade. Results can be seen within a few weeks, but multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results. LEARN MORE ›

I Love Dr. Raffy and Will Always Trust Him for Any Procedure! - Santa Monica, CA

Back in 2012, I was looking for a specialist who could take care of ugly spider veins in my legs and found Dr. Raffy doing a google search. I had tried to get rid of these spider veins for a long time but no doctor was ever able to get the job done. I spent a lot of money with several doctors... READ MORE

My Life Changed! - Las Vegas, NV

From two pregnancies, my body went through many negative changes.

Good Results from Sclerotherapy - Austin, TX

I had many ugly leg veins, mostly in my lower legs on both sides. I had tried sclerotherapy many years ago, but found it at that time to be rather painful so I was reluctant to have another treatment as my veins continued to get worse. When I talked to a friend of mine who went to Dr. Gotvald, I... READ MORE

Great Practice, Great Experience - Philadelphia, PA

I had spider veins appearing on the backs of my knees and up the sides of my calves but was nervous about sclerotherapy because I heard it was painful. This was so much easier than expected! Dr. Weishar used a glycerin solution and it wasn't nearly as painful as saline is supposed to be. The... READ MORE

Time helped

I had one slightly bulging vein, several flat blue veins, and several small red spider veins. The slightly bulging vein was the only thing that foam sclero took care of.

Very Painful! - Scottsdale, AZ

Multiple Sessions, Terrible Results - New York, NY

I have spider veins and one slightly bumpy pre-varicose vein. During the first session, I had my entire legs injected (approximately 20 injections) where the veins showed, and the doctor also injected a vein behind my knee he said was 'pre-varicose'. The result was that there was NO... READ MORE

50/50 - Lubbock, TX

I have had scherotherapy twice and some veins were greatly improved, others not so much. Vitamin K is a thickening agent. It makes veins thicker. If this is the problem, then vitamin K will work. It is great for treating bruising. If the problem is the valves in the veins, then vitamin K... READ MORE

Not So Much - Saint Charles, IL

I bought two different packages with different spas so that's why cost was around $200 (One spa was from a groupon deal, the other I paid full price for the treatment). The first place was a joke. The ONE treatment I did (I was suppose to have two with my groupon deal) the "doctor" took an hour... READ MORE

Dr. Morgan South Carolina - Columbia, SC

Dr. Morgan has been seeing patients for leg veins for over 25 years. I had a bad experience with matting prior to seeing Dr. Morgan and I was worried that a physician assistant would perform the procedure rather than the doctor. That was not true. The doctor performed the procedure himself... READ MORE

Created More Veins, Did Not Remove Old Ones - Ohio

I have had numerous schlerotherapy treatments. Probably at least 7 treatments. It has never helped and two times it actually made things worse.
