Sclerotherapy – veins

Are you annoyed by these small blue violet veins on your legs? You have been pregnant and now you see these spider veins all over your legs? Do you want to get rid of them?

Spider vein removal

For spider vein removal, Dr. Liv Kraemer performs sclerotherapy at her Zurich office. The sclerotherapy procedure is the most effective way to eliminate unattractive leg veins.Spider” veins, known medically as telangiectasia, are excessively dilated small blood vessels in the skin. As they look like small legs of spiders, they are called “spider veins”.

No one knows exactly what causes spider veins. For instance mechanical trauma (including crossing your legs), leg injuries or tight fitting clothes can cause the delitated veins. In addition, also obesity, long periods of standing or even sitting as well as pregnancy, family history and hormones all seem to play a role. The spider veins range in color from red to blue depending on the size of the blood vessels (red=smallest; purple=medium; blue=largest).

To meet with us and learn more about sclerotherapy at our Zurich office, please request a consultation with Dr. Liv Kraemer or call (044) 211-88 11 to schedule your appointment.

The cost may vary. Dr. Liv Kraemer will discuss it with you according to the severity. It starts from 450CHF (for both legs) incl. a follow up consultation within the next 10 days.
