Sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins - Santa Monica Vein Center in Los Angeles

The development of spider veins can be insidious and can cause unsightly thread veins and broken blood vessels to appear on the surface of the ankles, legs, and thighs.  These veins are simply known as spider veins and can develop rapidly or slowly on the legs.  Despite a healthy lifestyle, millions of patients may develop spider and varicose veins on the legs and thighs because of genetic concerns.  Family history is one of the most important factors leading to the development of unwanted veins on the body. 


A treatment known as sclerotherapy is one of the first line therapies for unwanted thread veins and spider veins on the legs and thighs.  During sclerotherapy, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian will inject an FDA approved medicine into a spider vein in order to irritate the inner lining of the vein and cause it to collapse permanent.  Some studies have shown upwards of 97% efficacy in the treatment of small spider veins using these FDA approved medicines. 


If you have questions about spider and varicose veins and live in the Los Angeles communities of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley, Dr. Karamanoukian is available for consultation for varicose veins and spider veins treatment.  Our Los Angeles vein surgical car coordinator can help arrange a consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian and help facilitate your treatment.  Please call 310 998-5533.
