What can New Orleans patients expect during sclerotherapy procedures?


Spider veins are a common cosmetic skin issue that affects both men and women. As patients age, these veins may appear on the legs. They are characterized as red or purple veins that are close to the surface of the skin and are rather unsightly and embarrassing for most patients. Though they are often problematic in the sense of cosmetic appearance, they can later cause discomfort and pain. Through Sclerotherapy procedures, New Orleans patients can seek relief from the visual embarrassment and the discomfort. Dr. Mary Lupo, of Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, is a board certified dermatologist who can offer treatment options for varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that is highly effective and safe in reducing the appearance of spider veins. Viable candidates for this treatment are those who are unhappy with the appearance of the veins and those that do not have a past medical history of blood clots. During an initial examination and consultation appointment, Dr. Lupo can discuss alternative options and determine if Sclerotherapy is the best solution.

During Sclerotherapy treatment, a solution is injected into the problematic vein. This solution damages the vein and causes it to collapse, thus eliminating the blood flow and eliminating the varicose vein. Pressure hose is required for several days post treatment. Blood will reroute through healthier veins and the discomfort of the varicose veins will be eliminated.

Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure provided by board certified dermatologists such as Dr. Lupo in New Orleans. It is safe, effective, and affordable. Patients who are experiencing troubles due to their varicose veins are encouraged to schedule a consultation appointment at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to determine their candidacy for treatment. This popular treatment is used to give patients back their confidence and self-esteem when it comes to wearing cooler clothes during the hot summer months!

Dr. Lupo is fantastic! I've been a patient for 2.5 years and have always been 100% satisfied with her services! Her nurses and assistants always take my calls and return my messages before the end of the day regarding treatment questions or prescription refills. She is incredibly honest and won't perform any services that she does not feel are necessary, she also spends a large amount of time with me discussing any concerns with my skin and following-up with me post procedure. My skin is finally clear and I've achieved my goal of not having to wear makeup to cover a blemish. Not only is she amazing with fillers and skin treatment but she is very innovative on the medical side of dermatology. I feel very safe with her as my dermatologist and lucky to have her practice in New Orleans!
