What is Sclerotherapy?
Spider veins — or telangiectasia — can be created by genetics, obesity, hormonal changes, medications, blood clots, and medical conditions. They are usually purple, blue, or red and may be visible underneath the skin while they keep branching out on the face and body. Our experienced team performs sclerotherapy to minimize or eliminate the appearance of spider veins on the body or face. A minimally invasive treatment with no recovery time needed, sclerotherapy may give you an even skin tone that you'll want to stop covering up. Make an appointment at ZO Skin Centre® in Laguna Beach, CA to get more information about nonsurgical sclerotherapy, plus other skin treatments.

"May & every staff I had the pleasure to talk to are awesome. I’ve been seeing May for my skin damage and she put me on at home - program, explained every little step, what to expect and she was telling the truth - my skin transformed to a smooth spotless wrinkle free healthy baby skin. May really cares about her clients and whenever I have a question, I text her and she responds right away. You see all these before and after pictures but their regimen really works and you will not regret spending your $$ and time. Having a great result with an amazing mentor and staff - what do you want more? So happy and grateful. Thank you!"- M.T. / Yelp / May 12, 2021

"I’m so glad that I met Serene, she did the best peel and laser treatment on me. My skin really improved and looks amazing. People always ask me what I use for my skin and it’s not only the ZO products, but the procedures that Serene does has really made a huge difference. She really takes the time to explain the process and what to expect during the healing process. She also kept in contact with me afterwards which was personable and appreciated."- J.M. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2021

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy treatments are helpful for patients who are bothered by small- or medium-sized blood vessels that are visible underneath their skin. Generally, these spider veins are most obvious on the lower legs and thighs so they avoid wearing swimsuits, shorts, or other clothing that don't cover their spider veins. Patients must be in good overall health before their procedure to avoid a reaction. Patients shouldn't be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy treatments can be done in one of our treatment rooms within a short time and typically without anesthesia. The spider veins being treated will be identified, and the skin will be sanitized. A fine needle will be introduced into the vessel so the sclerosing solution can be introduced. The needle will be removed and gauze will be put over the site of injection to stop any bleeding. This process can be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.
What to Expect After Sclerotherapy
Once you are done with sclerotherapy, you will be able to leave our office to resume your normal routine. You may notice mild redness, bruising, or swelling in the areas treated, but this will usually fade naturally. Compression garments will be suggested by the provider to help blood circulation after your treatment for faster, better results. It can take a while for the treatment to work, but eventually, the treated spider veins should shrink, become white, and then fade or disappear. You may require at least two sclerotherapy sessions to get your best results, but many patients are happy with their improvements after their first session.
