Sclerotherapy treatment with Dr. Reichel

Hi Cyleste. I would be happy to see you for consult for sclerotherapy. It is one of my favorite treatments. In our clinic, we treat all the vessels that we see in one treatment session - so we don't time the session, or limit it to a certain # of syringes (unless we need to go over the maximum for safety - then we have to break it into two sessions). This doesn't usually happen. We use both high concentration salt solution (hypertonic saline), and Asclera. I do like to have patients wear compression stockings for 24 hours after the treatment. It can take more than one treatment session (usually 2-3). We space them at least 4 weeks apart. Sclerotherapy is very safe and affective. I do prefer it over the lasers that can be used to treat spider veins on the legs. Since I trained extensively in leg vein treatment, I will also examine you to be sure that your vessels are not true vericose veins. If you have large rope-like vericose veins, the best treatment is to have a diagnostic ultrasound to see if your greater saphenous vein is not competent. If this is the case, then the treatment of choice is endovenous laser ablation  (EVLT).
I will have my receptionist, Mellissa, call you. Or, you can call us at 206-859-5777 to schedule an appointment. Be sure to mention realself and the consult fee is waived.
Thanks. I look forward to seeing you.
