Sclerotherapy for Non-Surgical Vein Treatment
Bothered by the appearance of unsightly spider veins on your legs? If that’s the case, you may be a good candidate for sclerotherapy treatments. This innovative treatment uses a special formula to minimize the appearance of visible blue, purple, and red spider veins,
leaving behind clear and beautiful skin.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy at Twin Ports Dermatology is highly effective because we use a special medicated solution called polidocanol to get rid of spider veins.
The solution is injected directly into the offending vein; at that point, irritating the vein walls, causing them to close up. As there’s no more blood flowing through the closed vein, it eventually dies and is reabsorbed back into the body.
Don’t worry, sclerotherapy is an incredibly safe and effective vein treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sclerotherapy?
You’re a good candidate for sclerotherapy if you have visible spider veins on the legs.
