Spider veins, also called telangiectasia, may be caused by genetics, obesity, hormonal changes, certain medications, blood clots, and some medical conditions. They are usually red, purple, or blue and may become easily visible through the skin as they grow in branching patterns on the body. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George A. Toledo and his skilled aesthetic team offer sclerotherapy to reduce or eliminate the appearance of spider veins on the thighs and legs. A minimally invasive treatment with no required recovery period, sclerotherapy can help you get an even skin tone that you can show off in short shorts.

"So impressed with Dr. Toledo's rhinoplasty results! And even more impressed with how much my breathing has improved! I didn't even realize how blocked my breathing was until now, it really is life changing. Beautiful results. And a perfect little nose!"- J.D. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2019
"Best Choice for Lower Facelift, Bleph and Breast Reduction!! - I can't say enough good about Dr. Toledo and his staff!! I live in Colorado and booked a procedure with Dr. Toledo for a lower facelift, upper eyes & breast reduction after seeing his before and afters online. I had a bad turkey neck that really bothered me, saggy upper eyes and I wanted a breast reduction. Going there I had expectations and they were completely surpassed. I have a jawline again! And my eyes he did perfectly. The breast reduction/lift is so good I almost cried when I saw them. As soon as the reduction was done all my back pain is gone!! So grateful. You never really know when you choose someone you haven't met and fly there for procedures. Hands down best decision I could have made!! His staff is so caring and makes you feel so comfortable. But equally important is due to his techniques I didn't even need the pain pills. I took over the counter Tylenol just a couple of times and the recovery was so easy and pain free. As you can see by the pictures I could have gone back to work a week after the procedures. He is sooo good at what he does and if I ever get any other procedures it will only be from him! HIGHLY recommend!!!"- L. / RealSelf / Jul 06, 2021
"Dr. Toledo preformed a rhinoplasty on me and he did an excellent job. During my consultation, he was very straight to the point and he was honest with what he could do. He realistically set my expectations with a digital mark up of my nose after surgery. I highly suggest you go to him for your procedure. His staff is also extremely kind and personable."- A.S. / Google / Jun 28, 2021
"Wonder staff, wonderful surgeon, and amazing results!! From the first moment that I walked into the office, I was made to feel at home. I highly recommend Dr Toledo, and his staff!"- D.D. / Google / Jun 24, 2021
"I had wanted a rhinoplasty for over 15 years and was always just too nervous to commit. I wish I had met Dr. Toledo back then, his staff made me extremely comfortable and confident with the decision. The procedure and recovery were shockingly painless, thanks to Dr. Toledo's expertise. My nose is natural and more functional than I could have ever dreamed. He gave me very real expectations and I am beyond happy with the result. I would tell anyone not to fear the recovery if you have Dr. Toledo, the whole process start to finish was a breeze and I have my ideal result. Special thanks to Esther, who went above and beyond to answer all my questions, I could not be happier!"- T.S. / Office Visit / Jun 14, 2021
Sclerotherapy is best for patients who have small to medium blood vessels that are visible through the skin on their thighs and legs. Since spider veins are most prominent in these locations, patients may avoid wearing shorts, swimsuits, or other clothing that don't cover their spider veins. Sclerotherapy patients should be in good general health before their treatment to avoid complications. Patients should not be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
Sclerotherapy can be performed in one of our treatment rooms quickly and without any anesthesia. The spider veins being treated will be identified, and the skin will be sanitized with alcohol. A fine-gauge needle will be inserted into the vein and the sclerosing solution will be applied. The needle will be removed and a bandage will be applied to the injection site to stop any minor bleeding. This process will be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.
What to Expect
After sclerotherapy, you will be able to leave our facility to resume normal activities. You may notice some redness, bruising, or swelling in the treated areas, but this should subside naturally. Compression garments may be recommended by Dr. Toledo to help blood circulation after your treatment for faster, better results. The treated veins should shrink, turn white, and then fade or disappear. You may need two or more treatments to achieve optimal results, but most patients are pleased with their improvements after one treatment.
