What is Sclerotherapy?
Spider veins or telangiectasia may be created by obesity, genetics, hormonal changes, blood clots, and even certain medications and medical conditions. Usually purple, blue, or red, spider veins may be easily seen underneath the skin as they branch out on the legs and face. Dermatologist Dr. Lauren Dozier performs sclerotherapy to reduce or remove the appearance of spider veins on the face and body. A nonsurgical treatment with no downtime for recovery, sclerotherapy may help you get more beautiful skin that you can stop covering up. Schedule an appointment at Brickell Cosmetic Center in Miami, FL to learn more about minimally invasive sclerotherapy, plus other cosmetic services.
"I’m thrilled to have found this MedSpa. No need to look elsewhere, BCC is everything that you are looking for. Thus far, I have had a hydrafacial and Botox (both for the first time). My experience was fantastic for both procedures. Dr. Dozier assisted in starting me off with the appropriate amount of Botox to achieve my beauty goals. She was very knowledgeable and took my unique skin into consideration when choosing the right plan for me. I felt comfortable and confident in her and am so happy with the results (and this is just the beginning!). I will definitely be coming back and continue to enhance my natural beauty. Thank you Dr. Dozier and staff! You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in the near future."- K.R. / Google / Nov 11, 2020

"This office is great! The place itself is modern and clean. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. I came in for a laser treatment on dark spots on my face and the dermatologist who did my treatment was super sweet making me feel at ease immediately. I would highly recommend this place you will not regret it."- K.S. / Google / Oct 06, 2020
"We’ve been thinking about Botox and fillers for so long. My wife and I saved our pennies, did our research and landed in BCC. I’m so happy we did! The consultation exceeded my expectations. Dr. Dozier’s tact, professionalism and humor made the whole experience so comfortable. She answered our 27,000 questions and was incredibly thorough. The staff in the front is just as professional, humble, INSERT ALL THE POSITIVE ADJECTIVES EVER. It should be noted that you can eat off of every single surface in this office. Incredibly clean/sanitary. Two weeks after our consultation we had our plump. That on its own deserves it own review. When I thought things couldn’t get better they did. You feel like you’re in a dream (mind you they’re sticking needles in your face but i stand by what I say). They have defined what it is to "take care" of someone. My wife and I were first timers and they were so comforting. From the moment we were greeted to the moment we left it was a spa like experience. I can’t thank the staff, nurse and doctor enough. When i saw my lips I became super emotional. They looked phenomenal. It was worth every single penny. The procedure was not painful AT ALL. I don’t consider myself to have a high pain tolerance but they take EXTRA care and make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the whole procedure. Going to a dermatologist makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. If you are on the ledge about going through with this I beg you to give this place a shot. I’m a nervous rat and someway, some how they managed to make an anxiety ridden experience a relaxing one. Forever grateful. I will update my review with a before and after once I’m healed and ready to go. Oh, and did i mention you can call and text them whenever after your procedure for questions/ concerns ANYTHING. Like I said, they take care of you. Oh and my wife looks like she did when we met 7 years ago. I might even say better. Hope she doesn’t read this."- M.C. / Yelp / Jan 30, 2021
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy treatments are performed in one of our private treatment rooms, and these treatments are typically short and generally don't require anesthesia. The blood vessels being treated will be marked, and the skin will be sanitized. From there, we will use a fine needle to inject the sclerosing solution. This process can be repeated to treat all spider veins. Following your appointment, you can leave to get back to your normal activities. You may see mild redness, bruising, or swelling in the areas treated, but this should go away relatively quickly. Dr. Dozier suggests that you wear compression garments to encourage blood circulation after your treatment for faster, better results. It can take some time for the sclerosing solution to show results, but eventually, the treated veins should shrink, become a white color, and then disappear or fade. You may require at least two sessions to get your best results, but most patients are happy with the improvements after their first session. Miami Beach and Coconut Grove, FL men and women can call Brickell Cosmetic Center to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dozier today.
