What is Sclerotherapy?
Spider veins can be an unsightly addition to the skin and cause embarrassment or self-consciousness. These veins, called telangiectasia, are typically created by obesity, genetics, hormonal changes, blood clots, and certain medications and medical conditions. Usually blue, purple, or red, spider veins can be easily seen underneath the skin as they grow in branching patterns on the legs and face. Board-certified dermatologists Dr. Greg Van Dyke and Dr. Jasmine Yun offer a nonsurgical treatment called sclerotherapy to minimize or remove visible spider veins on the face and body. Schedule an appointment at Van Dyke Yun Dermatology in Studio City, CA to learn more about minimally invasive sclerotherapy, as well as other skin treatments.
"I recently received IPL treatment (three sessions) from Dr. Van Dyke and was delighted with the results! My dark spots have visibly lightened and my skin tone is definitely brighter and more even. I will absolutely come back for any future dermatological needs. Dr. Van Dyke is both personable and knowledgeable - and his front office is courteous and efficient. Thank you, Dr. Van Dyke, for an excellent client experience!"- M.F. / Yelp / Oct 30, 2022
"I was having a prolonged reaction to something and needed to see a dermatologist ASAP. I looked through tons of reviews for various places and had a hell of a time getting in anywhere. I finally came across Van Dyke & Yun Dermatology and I’m so glad I did. I was able to get an appointment within the week. I saw Dr. Yun’s PA and she was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The staff there was welcoming and friendly. I was in and out pretty quickly with some advice to help my reaction, which worked. Would definitely recommend."- L.S. / Yelp / Oct 19, 2022
"I’ve seen dermatologists on and off, mainly for acne in Irvine. Now that I moved to LA, I did a lot of research to find a new dermatologist that I could trust and develop a relationship with. I finally landed on this office from seeing great photos and reviews on Yelp.I was a little said to not be able to see Jasmine, but I think my issue was small enough to give their PA Charlotte a chance since I was told she worked with Dr. Yun for several years. And I don’t mind giving other doctors a chance. The staff was great and very kind and professional. And the decor is modern and cute as well.Charlotte was friendly and professional. She immediately figured out what was going on and knew exactly what to do. I think I was in and out in 10 minutes. I was very happy with my visit. And I recently had a follow up visit, and it was also quick and painless as well. I’m confident that my issue will be solved and gone soon. I love that there is a parking lot even if it’s small. My costs was $95 per visit, and I think that’s a very fair price for their expertise and service."- C.L. / Yelp / Oct 10, 2022
"I went to Dr Yun a few years ago since she was close. So glad I did, she was amazing! She really made you feel like she cared. I needed to go back to her recently. Found out she had moved so was about 25 min further, but it was worth the drive! I got to my appointment, only waited in the waiting room and the room for her for less than 5 min! She did not rush, was still so courteous and followed up herself when she said she would! I will highly recommend her for any dermatological needs!"- S.M. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2022
"Even though this clinic didn’t accept my dad’s health insurance, we were willing to bring our dad to be taken care of Dr. Yun because of good reviews about her. My experience when visiting the clinic: The parking is very limited. It has been a couple times I visit this clinic and thankfully, I always find the parking spot. The receptionists are very helpful & friendly.First Impression on the first meeting with Dr. Yun: She is very pleasant to talk with & polite. Even though she’s wearing a face mask, I can tell that she always smiles when she talks and listens. After examining my dad’s skin, we agreed to do biopsy on the dark spot around forehead and his arm, plus cold/Cryotherapy. She surprised knowing that we would pay cash on the treatment. She seriously told us that she would not charge my father on doctor visit. I’ve never expected that she would be so generous to waive 100% fee on doctor visit. We paid cash to other doctors before, but none of them would care on how much we must spend out of the pocket. Dr Yun is totally different. It’s not all about the money (even though money is important), but she is really care about her patients (we can tell from her patients’ reviews). She is a nice doctor inside and out. I’ve never seen such a good doctor like that in my life. Even though she’s knowledgeable, but she’s not arrogant at all. She is patient & considerate. When we were about to leave, she gave us an Aquaphor sample (healing ointment just in case my dad need it). She also informed that she would call me once she received on the biopsy result. Dr. Yun kept her promise. She called me as soon as she received the biopsy result. I was surprised when receiving her phone call because I thought she would ask her assistant or receptionist to call me. I didn’t expect that she would call me on the biopsy result and arranged the schedule for the 2nd visit. She impressed me again with her loyalty as a doctor! On the 2nd visit, my dad went through biopsy again on his arm & his back and cryotherapy. Dr. Yun only charged for a biopsy on my dad’s arm for $250. She didn’t charge my dad on the biopsy on his back, cryotherapy, and doctor visit. Before we left Dr. office, we got a ’goody bag’ from Dr Yun: 4 different samples of sunscreens and an Aquaphor sample. Dr. Yun, we can never thank you enough. Oh, thanks also for spraying the cold stuff on my mom’s neck. Bless your big and generous heart! It’s worth it to find you even though I have to drive for about an hour. I strongly recommend visiting Dr. Yun on dermatology problems. If every doctor strives to be as caring and generous as her, the world would be filled with smiles and laughter instead of pain and sorrow. Sorry for the long review. I am so excited and never have enough talking about all of her kindness!"- F.M. / Yelp / Aug 21, 2022
How Are Spider Veins Eliminated?
Usually, spider veins are most prominent on the legs so those with them may avoid wearing swimsuits, shorts, or other clothing that reveal their spider veins. If this is you and you are in good overall health, are not pregnant, or have a history of blood clots, you may be a good candidate for sclerotherapy. After a consultation with Dr. Van Dyke or Dr. Yun, your sclerotherapy will be performed in a private treatment room quickly and without any anesthesia. The blood vessels being corrected will be determined, and then the overlying skin will be sanitized. A fine needle will be inserted into the vein and the sclerosing solution can be introduced. The needle will be removed and gauze will cover the injection site to treat any bleeding. The process can be repeated until all spider veins have been treated. You can leave our office to resume your daily routine. You may have mild swelling, redness, or bruising in the treated areas, but this will usually fade naturally. Compression garments will be suggested to help blood circulation after your sclerotherapy treatment for better, faster results. The treated blood vessels should shrink, turn white, and then disappear or fade. If more than one session is needed, we can help you schedule your appointment.
