Bella Medspa performs both Sclerotherapy and IPL Vein Treatments at five of our six locations: Rittenhouse Square Philadelphia, Chester Springs, Newtown (Bucks County) , Camp Hill and Lancaster, PA.

Both treatments are very effective and can be used for conditions including:

  • small angiomas
  • spider veins
  • fine telangiectasia
  • small varicose veins
  • vascular malformations

IPL has had great success with cases that have proven too difficult to correct with sclerotherapy, such as recalcitrant vessels that are unresponsive to sclerosing solution.

Our experienced practitioners can help you determine which treatment is right for you. Consultations are free. Please call with any questions or to book your consultation.

IPL Veins Removal

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an effective treatment for unsightly facial spider veins. IPL works by selectively damaging or destroying small spider veins and small vascular birthmarks. Two to four treatments may be required depending on the number and size of the lesions.

IPL vein therapy is a non-invasive treatment for spider veins. It may also treat reticular veins, age spots, and sun damage. Spider veins are treated by delivering a concentrated pulse of light. The light generates heat and damages the blood vessel walls. The veins shrink and disappear as a result of treatment. IPL penetrates the unwanted vessel but does not damage or scar the surrounding tissue.

Sclerotherapy Veins Removal

Sclerotherapy is a method of veins removal for spider veins and small varicose veins.

It can be used to safely and effectively treat veins in the legs, hands, breasts and face. The process includes injecting the Asclera sclerosing agent into the vein, which will cause the vein to shrink or collapse.

It works by damaging the endothelium, the cells lining the inside of blood vessels. This causes blood platelets to attach to the lining of the vessels, eventually cellular debris and platelets cause the blood vessel to clot. Over time, the clotted vein will be replaced with tissue. The vein will not allow blood to flow freely through it, which will force the body to absorb it.

Typically, a sclerotherapy session takes 15 to 45 minutes. One injection is usually administered per inch with multiple injections per session.

For best results, compression hose may be recommended. All patients are advised to abstain from strenuous activity for 3 days following procedure. But, regular walks are encouraged to promote blood flow.

Spider veins typically respond to treatment within 3 to 6 weeks, and larger veins respond within 3 to 4 months. If the veins respond to the treatment, they will not reappear.

When seeking veins treatment, patients should look for the least invasive vein therapy Philadelphia has to offer. IPL and Sclerotherapy offer a great alternative to more invasive proceedures.
