WHAT CAUSES SPIDER VEINS
Spider veins (telangiectasias) are caused by structural abnormalities of blood vessels. They are typically seen in middle aged women and men. The cause of spider veins is not clear. Researchers believe the causes may be genetics, environmental, or a combination of both. They are often seen or made worse by sun exposure, excess pressure, or hormonal changes. Other causes that may cause spider veins include:

"I have been going to Dr. T for my BOTOX now for nearly 5 years, he is a perfectionist in the work he does! He takes his time with me, listens and the results are the best! Highly recommended!"- N.M. / Google / Aug 21, 2018
"I was researching botox for men online when I came across something called “scrotox”. It is apparently becoming an increasing cosmetic thing for men. I suffer from urological conditions and have been experiencing testicular/scrotal discomfort and pain for years and have been miserable. I was curious if doing this cosmetic procedure could also help me with relief of my testicular/scrotal pain. I called a few places and then found Dr. Theocharides and Nadine. I was nervous asking about this at first but then they were so easy to talk to and I felt completely comfortable. Dr. T agreed to do the scrotox on me for cosmetic reasons only. I went and had the scrotox done. It really didn’t take that long and I did not feel any pain at all with the injections. Dr. T was cool to talk with the entire time also and I was not nervous at all. He is actually a really cool and nice person and it was an enjoyable experience. About two weeks after the scrotox procedure I started noticing results and maybe by week 3 I noticed my scrotum was completely relaxed and the best part was that I did not feel my scrotal/testicular pain anymore either. It has been about 2 months now and I’m still pain free. As for appearance my scrotum used to be tight all the time and my testicles were up near my body. They almost never hung freely. Now my scrotum is completely relaxed and testicles hang much lower. So now I am pain free and also enjoying the cosmetic appearance of having low hanging testicles. It has also improved my sex life as well. I am completely satisfied. If you are curious about getting scrotox I highly recommend Dr. T and Nadine. They are a great team. I will definitely be going there for all of my facial botox and scrotox treatments from now on. You will be in good hands if you do too."- CN / Office Visit / Mar 12, 2021

SCLEROTHERAPY – WHAT TO EXPECT
Sclerotherapy is a simple in-office treatment for spider veins. Most people describe sclerotherapy as a very comfortable procedure with little or no pain. The treatment involves an injection of sclerotherapy agent directly into the unsightly veins. The injection irritates the veins, forcing them to collapse and fade from view. Most patients will need several treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. The number of sclerotherapy treatments required to achieve optimal cosmetic results will vary, and is dependent on the severity of each individual case. On average, most patients receive 2 to 6 treatment sessions that last 15 to 20 minutes each. While individual veins can clear after one treatment, multiple sclerotherapy sessions are often required to achieve visually appealing, permanent results.
OTHER VEIN TREATMENTS
Laser treatment may be used as a complimentary treatment to sclerotherapy. It can also be used in place of sclerotherapy in patients who have facial spider veins or other small cosmetic concerns. The first step is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Thomas Theocharides so he can evaluate your skin, listen to your concerns and recommend a treatment plan that is best for you.
