Varicose veins and couperose

Discover our treatments

Varicose veins, spider veins, broken veins.... not only are they unsightly, they can get worse over time and lead to complications if left untreated. The best way to manage these conditions is to consult a phlebologist (a doctor who specializes in vein disorders).

Our treatments for varicose veins and couperose

Performed under medical supervision

At Epiderma, we work with physicians who specialize in phlebology (diagnosis and treatment of vein-related disorders), to treat varicose veins and couperose using a process called sclerotherapy. The treatment consists of injecting a sclerosing agent (a solution that shrinks the vein, which will then dissolve over time) into the unwanted vein. The amount of injections and dosage required for the treatment will vary based on several factors, and will be determined by your Epiderma physician. This type of treatment takes 20 minutes and involves no recovery time. As every case and patient is different, results may vary.

Before treatment, the physician will perform a medical examination and comprehensive assessment of your veins. We may also perform an ultrasound on any veins that are more dilated, so that we can accurately assess their depth and locate the backflow areas. The physician will use all of this information to develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Our treatments for small distended veins (spider veins)

At Epiderma, we use sclerotherapy to target and treat small distended veins, also called spider veins. The process is safe and involves no recovery time.

Almost all veins can be treated by sclerotherapy, even very small ones.

Large varicose veins and dilated veins

Our treatments for varicose veins and dilated veins

Minimize and contract unsightly veins

Large varicose veins and dilated veins are treated using sclerotherapy. Because of the size and depth of these veins, one of our physicians will first perform an ultrasound to determine where the backflow begins, assess your circulatory system in the problem area and determine the path of the affected veins.

Depending how large the vein is, the physician may decide to include a stronger substance as part of the treatment.  A foaming agent is sometimes used to treat backflow areas, enlarged veins and deep veins. In all cases, no recovery time is required.

Couperose and telangiectasia

Our treatments for couperose and facial thread veins

Although most commonly found on our lower limbs, varicose veins can appear on any part of the body (and at any age!) including cheeks, skin and the sides of the nose. Couperose is a condition that affects the blood vessels and microcirculation of the face. It is often associated with rosacea.

At Epiderma, we treat couperose and facial thread veins (medical term: telangiectasia) using sclerotherapy. Just like our procedure for small veins elsewhere on the body, it is a moderate, non-invasive treatment that requires no recovery time.

Medical compression stockings

Medical compression stockings

Soothe and prevent

Wearing graduated compression stockings is strongly recommended for the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. Advocated by medical professionals, these leg coverings help manage vein conditions, should enhance the effects of sclerotherapy and help prevent new varicose veins from appearing.

The stockings are available in two different compression levels, adapted to your specific needs. Your Epiderma physician will determine which level is appropriate for you during your first treatment.
