Non-Invasive Vein Reduction
There are a variety of ways that veins can be removed, including sclerotherapy, laser vein therapy, and finally surgery. Sclerotherapy is considered the best means of non-invasive vein reduction on the body, as it is safe, effective, and quick. Sclerotherapy consists of an injection of a sclerosing agent, which is a medicine that dissolves veins from the inside. A skilled injector can find the root of the vein, from which all the other unwanted veins branch out, and perform one injection that dissolves all of the unwanted branching veins.
Laser vein therapy is another means of reducing unwanted veins that is highly effective and very safe when performed by the right doctor. Lasers are often used to reduce unwanted veins on the face, including around the temples, eyes, and nose. Lasers can also be used to reduce veins on the body if sclerotherapy is not an option for any reason. The CoolTouch Varia is a popular laser for reducing blue facial veins, while a PDL laser can help target red veins. The CoolTouch CTEV is effective for leg veins.
