Spider vein Treatment: sclerotherapy

If spider veins keep you from wearing shorts when it's hot outside, let Dr. Ackerman help. Don't let those  clusters of red, blue or purple veins keep you from showing off your legs any longer. The spider vein sclerotherapy treatment has helped many people, mostly women, feel better about themselves.

Dr. Cheryl Ackerman, practices cosmetic and general dermatology in New Jersey and is very skilled in administering this spider vein sclerotherapy treatment to patients. One must make an appointment with Dr. Ackerman to find out if this treatment is right for you before the procedure can be done. The best candidates are between the ages of 30 to 60. Women who are pregnant or breast feeding are usually advised to postpone this type of procedure.

While Sclerotherapy will make your spider veins less noticeable, it probably won't make every cluster of veins completely disappear. In fact, it usually takes a few sessions to get the best results.
