Leg Veins Treatment

Leg Veins Treatment Jacksonville Dr. Mary Pentel of The Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology is a quality physician who can help patients in improving the appearance of their skin and body. When patients visit her practice complaining of unsightly and sometimes painful veins on the legs, they have two options available to them: sclerotherapy and laser treatment.


Sclerotherapy is often the first line of defense against varicose veins and spider veins. This treatment requires Dr. Mary Pentel to inject a solution directly into the vein of the leg with a very fine needle. This solution results in inflammation of the wall of the blood vessel, which causes it to collapse. The vein is absorbed by the body's own natural healing response and the blood is redirected to healthier veins in the leg. While sclerotherapy is best on spider veins and telangiectasias, it can also be used for varicose veins. However, if varicose veins are particularly large or painful, surgery may be suggested for proper treatment. Sclerotherapy is extremely effective and affordable for patients who need to address troublesome veins on the legs.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a newer method of treating veins in the legs. It can help with small and large veins and it can provide patients with a way of addressing the appearance of these unsightly veins. It is also effective at improving veins that are not responsive to traditional sclerotherapy methods. Most patients can benefit from results obtained after just one treatment. Patients are welcome to discuss with Dr. Mary Pentel what they can expect before, during, and after the laser therapy treatment to be fully aware of what is achieved during this procedure.
