Expert sclerotherapy is often effective in eliminating unsightly veins in areas other than the legs. The most common such areas are the face, hands, and breasts.

There are two basic types of facial veins: smaller spider veins, and larger “reticular” veins. Spider veins (“telangiectasia”) are usually fine pink or red hair-like lines on the nose, cheeks, or sideburn areas; thicker ones often appear dark blue in color. The larger reticular veins appear green in color, are 2-3 mm in diameter, and can most often be found on the temples, along the cheekbone under the eye, and across the jaw or the front of the neck. Reticular veins and large spider veins are best treated by sclerotherapy, while smaller spider veins may require Vein Gogh.  Often a combination of both methods provides the best result.
