Do you have spider veins or varicose veins that cause you to be self-conscious or avoid wearing shorts? While they are not one in the same, both spider veins and varicose veins involve a structural abnormality of blood vessels that can be very unsightly. Spider veins are a cluster of dilated skin capillaries that can develop close to the surface of the skin in a web-like presence. Varicose veins refer to enlarged, twisting and bulging vessels that rise above the skin surface. These unattractive veins can be blue or purple in appearance and frequently develop on the legs.

Sclerotherapy Before & After Photo

When there is a backflow of blood within the vein valves, the pressure and pooling of blood can cause engorgement and dilation of the blood vessels and result in spider veins and/or varicose veins. Women are more likely to experience this condition, but the following are known risk factors for spider vein and varicose vein development:

  • Advanced age
  • Prolonged sitting/standing
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy, hormone therapy, birth control pills
  • Injury
  • Prolonged sun exposure
  • Prior vein surgery
  • Family history

Regardless of what caused your spider veins or varicose veins, they can typically be reduced or eliminated with sclerotherapy. Modern Aesthetica is proud to offer sclerotherapy as a proven, minimally-invasive treatment for reducing unsightly spider veins on the legs.

Varicose Veins Treatment

Sclerotherapy involves a simple, in-office procedure that requires no anesthesia. Though multiple sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results, sclerotherapy is a successful treatment option for eliminating the majority of spider veins and some varicose veins. During this procedure, we will use tiny needles to inject a liquid solution directly into the affected veins. This special medical-grade agent causes the vessel to collapse and eventually shrink and fade away. The body’s venous system is highly redundant, so closing off one vessel will not harm or compromise your overall circulation. Side effects can involve temporary bruising and swelling so many patients choose to get sclerotherapy in the winter to allow for healing by spring or summer.

If spider veins or varicose veins are threatening your self-confidence, consider sclerotherapy from a qualified professional. Contact our Santa Monica clinic today to schedule your consultation.

Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!

Audra L.

I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!

Top notch facility. Top notch doctor. Very happy to have found this place! Thanks Dr M!

Michael D.

Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.

David P.

I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.

Kayvan M.

I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!

Stacey R.

I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
