vein treatments

Prominent blood vessels beneath the skin's surface can create a "tree branch" or "spider web" appearance, resulting in a condition most commonly referred to as "spider veins” or telangiectasias. These veins are typically blue, red, or purple in colour and can sometimes appear swollen and bulge above the skin surface (also known as "varicose veins").

Bertucci MedSpa offers minimally invasive options such as laser treatments and sclerotherapy for vein removal in Toronto, Ontario. These procedures can help to improve the look of veins and create a more evenly toned appearance.

Dr. Bertucci is a board-certified dermatologist who has extensive experience performing vein treatment in Toronto, Ontario. Call 905-850-4415 or contact us to request your initial consultation. Bertucci MedSpa is located in Woodbridge, Ontario, and serves men and women in Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Thornhill, Mississauga, Barrie and all of Greater Toronto.

Both men and women of different ages choose vein removal to improve the appearance of red, purple, or blue veins on the legs – frequently in areas like the calves, thighs, or ankles. Broken blood vessels or capillaries on the face or other areas of the body can also be treated using a laser or light procedure. People with skin lesions or growths may be advised to consider mole and spot removal.

Spider veins typically don't produce physical pain and are primarily treated for cosmetic purposes. At Bertucci MedSpa, we can help to improve spider and reticular veins. Larger varicose veins, on the other hand, may cause medical complications such as throbbing, burning, aching or swelling. These larger veins may be better treated by a vascular surgeon.

Your individual circumstances and medical history will help to determine which procedure is best for you. Dr. Bertucci or one of the other dermatologists at Bertucci MedSpa will perform a complete physical assessment during your consultation in order to advise the appropriate treatment. 

Vein removal is always performed in our clinical office by either Dr. Bertucci or a qualified health care professional. Both procedures are minimally invasive, require very little recovery time, and patients return home the same day. Usually, multiple sessions are needed for complete benefits.

Q: Sclerotherapy
A: Sclerotherapy is a relatively painless procedure that is performed without anesthesia. Dr. Bertucci or one of the dermatologists at Bertucci MedSpa will inject a liquid solution into the vein using a small needle. A series of injections is usually needed to obtain complete results. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. After treatment, a bandage is applied and Dr. Bertucci and his team recommend wearing a compression garment or support hose for a few days to speed healing and maximize results.

Q: Laser Treatment
A: Laser procedures are usually performed without anesthesia, although a topical ointment may be applied to the treatment site for increased comfort. The laser beam is directed toward the vein in order to target the pigment in the blood. The laser heats the vein and destroys it without damaging the surrounding tissue. This procedure usually takes about 20 minutes with results appearing after about 4 to 6 weeks.

Q: Are there any side effects?
A: The side effects of sclerotherapy and laser treatments are very minimal. Some individuals may experience mild swelling, bruising, redness or itching at the treatment sites, which usually diminishes within a few days. Rarely, the skin may darken after treatment, usually temporarily.

Q: Can spider veins reappear?
A: Most of the men and women treated at Bertucci MedSpa experience a very high success rate with both sclerotherapy and laser vein procedures. Over several years, however, it is not uncommon to develop more veins due to weak vein valves, genetic predisposition or sun exposure. Maintenance therapy can help control recurrences.
