Spider Vein Treatment
To diminish the appearance of unsightly spider veins.
Epi Center MedSpa understands how sensitive a person can feel about having unfavorable veins that appear on the surface of their skin. Sclerotherapy is the gold standard treatment for spider vein elimination. Our patients are continually delighted by the treatment results and feel a new confidence in their appearance.
WHAT DOES SCLEROTHERAPY DO AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Sclerotherapy reduces the appearance of spider veins on the surface of the skin. The Sclerotherapy process involves inserting a tiny needle into the vein and injecting it with sclerosing fluid. This solution irritates the vein, causing it to shut down and eventually become reabsorbed by the body.
