Sclerotherapy is a safe, proven, non-invasive procedure used to minimize the appearance of spider veins and small varicose veins. Sclerotherapy can be used to reduce and even eliminate the red, blotchy discoloration caused by spider veins and varicose veins.

Spider veins and varicose veins appear when blood no longer travels through the blood vessel in your extremities – especially the legs – in the proper fashion. Instead, this blood collects, becoming visible through the skin. Dr. Julia performs sclerotherapy with Asclera, a treatment which re-routes the blood from the blocked vessel, allowing it to fade from view. This results in clearer, smoother skin.

Sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice to reduce the appearance of:

  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins

Why Choose Dr. Julia Sabetta for Sclerotherapy?

Did you know that venous insufficiency syndrome, the condition responsible for the appearance of varicose veins, becomes more common as we grow older? Approximately 50% of all American women have spider veins or varicose veins. Dr. Julia Sabetta’s extensive experience as a board certified dermatological surgeon includes a comprehensive knowledge of the intricacies of effective sclerotherapy treatment. She brings her deep understanding of human anatomy to help patients realize the skin-clearing, confidence-boosting benefits of sclerotherapy.

Understanding More About Asclera

Asclera is a safe, FDA-approved treatment for spider veins and varicose veins. Sclerotherapy treatment with Asclera lasts approximately 15-45 minutes. Most patients see resolution of spider veins and varicose veins with 1-3 treatments, although more significant veins may require additional treatments. You should not have Asclera treatment if you are pregnant.
