Removing spider veins from the legs in Los Angeles

Depends on the state. I would have a board certified specialist remove the spider veins from the legs.

Sclerotherapy and injectors.

The requirements for who can inject sclerotherapy depends on each state. In Florida it can be an MD, PA or nurse practitioner . The bottom line is that it should be someone well trained and certified to do the procedure.

Who can perform sclerotherapy

It depends on your state's requirements. In Nevada, anyone practicing under a physician's license can but I can assure you this is not the best idea. I have tried to train a few people over the years and there is a certainly an art to being a good sclerotherapy injector. Many people just don't have the ability to do it well as the veins are very tiny. "This answer has been solicited without seeing this patient and cannot be held as true medical advice, but only opinion.
