Q&A with Dr. Schlessinger

Your commonly asked questions answered.

  • Who Is at Risk of Developing Leg Veins?
  • Causes of Leg Veins
  • When to get treatment for leg veins
  • How can you prevent leg veins?

“Leg veins were some of the first treatments in cosmetic dermatology that I learned and it is still one of my favorites. Since I am a previously board-certified pediatrician, I have experience getting IVs into very small veins in neonates. This same skill is essential for a great result on sclerotherapy, the injection treatments for veins. We now add laser to this, but still the older method allows for treatment of so many more veins at one session and that is what I specialize in doing.”
