Say goodbye to varicose and spider veins.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure and vein treatment used to eliminate varicose and spider veins. Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and twisted veins, while spider veins are small, damaged veins that may appear in the form of thin lines, webs, or branches. Varicose veins are often found on the legs, while spider veins can be found on the nose, lips, cheeks, or legs. Treatment involves an injection of the FDA-approved solution, Asclera®, directly into the vein(s). The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and eventually vanish. Sclerotherapy is non-invasive and requires no anesthesia, although treated veins might darken or bruise for a few days after the procedure.
The Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on your legs. It is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:
- Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter).
- Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Michael Flynn with Melamed Weight and Wellness saved my life. I have tried every diet possible but it wasn’t until I met Michael Flynn, a Lipidologist and Nutritional Specialist, that my life changed. So far, I’ve lost 65 pounds and counting. Michael has gotten me off my medications including Coumadin. My new Doctor has marveled at the progress I’ve made and continue to make. I have my life back and feel fabulous because of Michael Flynn.
Dr. Melamed, and Michael Flynn have been truly outstanding. I started seeing Michael about 3 months ago and in that time I have had a complete healthy transformation which I really did not think could be possible. The benefits I have achieved by following a very easy nutritional plan was amazing. I have worked out my entire life excessively and have never achieved the results like I have in the last few months. Great staff and one of the best life changing decisions I have ever made.
If you have visited your primary care doctor for things like feeling sluggish and not being able to lose weight, even though you are mindful of your diet and exercise, and have left the appointment frustrated with no new information in-hand, consider a consultation to discuss your concerns with Dr. Melamed.
For the first time, a doctor took the time to listen and see the full picture. Dr. Melamed’s approach is informative, supportive and solution-driven and helped me understand the connection between energy levels and diet and more. Whether you need a jump start to get back on track to feeling like yourself or a better understanding of how your current diet and routine might be sabotaging your efforts, Dr. Melamed is genuinely working with you to get you where you want to be.
Wonderful experience! I had filler put into my cheek bones and it looks great! I get so many compliments. She really took the time to talk to me about what I wanted and make it look so good. I highly recommend to anyone to go see her. Staff very nice and helpful too.
This place is top notch!! I worked with Jan and before anything she sat down, we had a whole conversation explaining everything and asking me about my concerns. She definitely took her time & wasn’t in a rush. Very professional great and experienced. The place is very clean and the medical atmosphere in which these things should be done in. Don’t go anywhere else. I will definitely be back for more.
