In veins, there are one-way valves that keep blood flowing from your legs back up to your heart. When the valves are not functioning properly, blood collects in the veins in your legs […]
The image on the left is a patient with GSV insufficiency and will respond well to sclerotherapy. The patient on the right has no venous insufficiency and responds poorly to sclerotherapy. At the Aesthetic Vein Conference, we will share technique that we have found successful for the treatment of generalized essential telangiectasia.
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.

Histology samples were obtained […]
Patient had been treated 9 months by a podiatrist in a wound clinic. Dr. Bush injected foam sclerotherapy of the distal SSV and percutaneous injection of foam into vessels of the ulcer bed.
All veins of the face are connected. Knowing the anatomy allows for safe treatment. We never use a laser for these dilated 2-3 mm veins, since multiple treatments may be necessary and the failure rate is high. Foam sclerotherapy is usually a one-time treatment. % of concentration depends on vessel size but, Sotradecol 0.5% or […]
