* Review Dr. Ting's 717+ Q&A on RealSelf


We offer state of the art laser therapy for leg veins combining Elite MPX and VBeam Perfecta Pulse Dye Lasers as well as Sclerotherapy using Asclera, FDA-approved sclerosant for leg vein therapy. 

The gold standard for leg veins treatment remains the traditional sclerotherapy. However, for women who are not comfortable with needle injections or rare risk of skin ulceration from sclerotherapy, laser leg vein removal with Elite MPX laser and/or VBeam Perfecta Pulse Dye Laser is an excellent alternative. With its built-in Zimmer chiller, Elite MPX perfectly delivers Nd:Yag laser energy to minimize fine and moderately-sized red and even blue-hued leg veins and capillaries. VBeam Pulse Dye laser is effective against any superficial 'red' veins. Most patients would benefit from a series of 3 treatment sessions 4-6 weeks apart. While compression stocking is quite helpful to prevent exacerbation of leg veins and is required for sclerotherapy, it is not required for laser leg vein removal using Elite MPX laser and/or VBeam Pulse Dye Laser.

What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure done by your healthcare provider to treat uncomplicated spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins. The treatment involves the injection of a solution into the affected veins.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are very small and very fine red or blue veins. They are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. They can look like a thin red line, tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins can be found on the legs and face and may cover a small or large area.

What are reticular veins?

Reticular veins can also be known as feeder veins. They are the blue and green veins beneath the surface of the skin. Reticular veins enlarge because of increased pressure in the vein. They can be caused by heredity. You may have reticular veins alone but you may also have spider veins at the same time.

What causes spider and reticular veins?

Spider and reticular veins can be caused by many factors.

Heredity. Having a family member with prominent veins may increase the risk of you developing them. Approximately half of the people who get varicose veins have a family history of them.

Age. The normal wear and tear of aging may cause valves in the veins to weaken and not work as well.

Gender. Women are two to three times more likely to develop varicose veins than men. Up to half of American women have varicose veins. Changes in hormones due to puberty, pregnancy, menopause, or taking birth control pills may increase a woman's risk of developing varicose veins.

Pregnancy. During pregnancy, the growth of the fetus increases the pressure on the veins in the legs. Varicose veins that occur during pregnancy usually improve within 3 to 12 months following delivery.

Overweight and obesity. Having extra weight on the body can put additional pressure on the veins.

Prolonged standing or sitting. This is particularly true with legs bent or crossed. When standing or sitting with legs bent or crossed, the veins have to work harder to pump the blood up to the heart.

Other possible causes for leg veins are race, posture, occupation, hormones such as estrogen and progesterone, primary valvular incompetence, and incompetent perforating veins.

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are large blue, dark purple veins. They protrude from the skin and many times they have a cord-like appearance and may twist or bulge. Varicose veins are found most frequently on the legs. Dr. Ting recommends endovascular laser ablation to be done by board-certified Vascular Surgeons for treatment of deep and/or large varicose veins.
