Dilated facial veins commonly occur after facial plastic procedures. Most commonly of these is from forehead lifts and are the result of increased drainage through the scalp veins. Foam sclerotherapy is 100% effective using the correct techniques. Find out more at the Aesthetic Vein Conference, West Palm Beach Marriott Hotel, April 27l, 2019, or you […]
One of the common causes of staining after sclerotherapy is vessel wall perforation from inappropriate concentrations of sclerosants. In this case, Polidocanol 0.5% was used which is considered standard concentration for treatment. As we pointed out in our publication, ‘Evaluation of sodium tetradecyl sulfate and polidocanol as sclerosants for leg telangiectasia based on histological evaluation […]
The superior labial vein may become dilated and prominent in some patients following injections of fillers into the lip or malar folds. Treatment in this area must be carefully done due to the close proximity of the Superior Labial Artery. Find out the safe techniques to treat this vein at Aesthetic Vein Conference, West Palm […]
This complex is extremely difficult to treat and is actually an aneurysmal dilation of intradermal telangiectasia. In fact, this patient has had numerous previous treatments with recurrence. There is always a slight risk of digital ischemia if treatment is not done the correct way. However, by directing and controlling the flow of foam, this reticular […]
Spider and reticular veins around the ankle always have a source that must be identified. In this patient the GSV and Cockett’s perforator were normal. Her etiology is incompetent reticular veins, secondary to a small perforator from the anterior tibial vein. Four modalities of treatment were done as is common in all of our treatments. […]
Some patients will have large amounts of hemosiderin deposition unless specialized techniques are done at treatment to prevent re-filling and clotting. However, if staining does occur, we use heat and micro-surgical techniques to remove staining.
Large cluster of spider veins Staining Staining Can Occur After Spider Vein Treatment Staining after sclerotherapy is not infrequent. Staining results from trapped blood that occurs after sclerotherapy injections. A mild form of a small clot occurs after sclerotherapy. This is not a dangerous type of clot and does not travel to the heart, lungs, […]
Foot veins present a cosmetic issue for many patients. These veins are actually branches of the superficial dorsal venous plexus. Careful dissection must be done to prevent any cutaneous nerve injury and larger incisions must be used. Find out more about this technique at the next ‘Aesthetic Vein Conference’, April 27, 2019, West Palm Beach […]
Stasis dermatitis is a very common presentation in patients with venous disease. As you can see from the histology slide, this is secondary to marked iron deposition in the reticular papillary dermis. This is the result of hemosiderin deposition after red cell leaking into the dermis itself. Find out ways to treat this at the […]
