Phlebectomy is the removal of a vein. We make a small incision, 2-3mm, and use a pair of mosquito hemostats to remove small sections of vein. The incision is closed with a steri-strip. http://www.pinterest.com/coveinandlaser/micro-phlebectomy/
We treat spider veins with sclerotherapy. This solution is injected into the spider veins to help them fade. Veins will take about 2-6 weeks to fade, so plan on getting your spider veins injected over the winter months. We don’t recommend having sclerotherapy done right before a vacation to warmer weather.
