Spider and Varicose Vein Treatments

Don’t let unsightly veins bother you any longer

Smooth legs

It’s an unpleasant fact of life that up to 60% of adults develop spider veins and/or varicose veins. If you suffer from either of these forms of venous disease, Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery and Spa Greystone offer the most progressive procedures and care available, including laser therapy, sclerotherapy and medical compression stockings.

Spider veins, usually found on the legs and face, often appear as red or blue lines on the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are the swollen, bulging cords that usually appear on the calves and legs due to the pressure caused by walking and standing. While both spider and varicose veins are a cosmetic concern for most afflicted individuals, varicose veins can also cause severe physical symptoms, such as pain, aching and cramping.

If you are bothered by varicose veins or spider veins, please call our Birmingham-Hoover, Alabama cosmetic surgery and laser center at 205-980-1744 to schedule your consultation.

Sclerotherapy and laser treatments in Birmingham AL

Laser Spider Vein Therapy

Have your legs ready to show off for summer using laser treatment for spider veins. Using the most advanced technology, our technicians safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones. Three treatments may be necessary for optimal results, with each session spaced 6 weeks apart.

Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy is a safe, effective, nearly painless procedure used to treat spider veins. A chemical solution is injected into the spider veins, causing them to collapse and be absorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy is often used to treat larger spider veins, such as those found on the legs.

Laser Varicose Vein Therapy

EVLT laser therapy is a new, minimally-invasive solution for varicose vein sufferers. A thin laser fiber is inserted into the vein, sealing it shut and allowing it to be absorbed while blood flow is sustained by healthy veins. Most patients can immediately return to their normal activities – without varicose veins!
