We offer a full range of treatment options (excluding surgery) for the management of varicose and spider veins including surface sclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. We also have several lasers for treating smaller spider veins of the face, neck and other areas.
Often vein removal requires often a combination of treatments from sclerotherapy to laser. We offer full service treatments with assessment using Ultrasound. Using Ultrasound we are able to map exactly where the problem areas present and the exact anatomy of the veins in the legs. This anatomy varies from person to person. It needs to documented exactly and then treated to provide you with great results for your vein removal treatment.
Varicose veins that are deeper are treated with Ultrasound guided Sclerotherapy and some superficial veins may also be treated with sclerotherapy. Spider veins may be treated with sclerotherapy and lasers. The main aim of any vein removal treatments is to find the offending vein and remove that prior to treating the unsightly spider veins that may remain after the main problem vein has been treated.
Lasers used to treat spider veins are generally performed as single treatments but may require more than one treatment in order to remove the spider vein.
Vein treatments also require the use of stockings for leg health to prevent and help further problem veins.
Vein removal treatments at BC Laser are offered for both men and women in our Surrey clinic, near Vancouver. To book your appointment at our clinic please call 604 580 2464.
Varicose Vein Removal
Varicose veins are larger, twisted or stretched veins located deeper under the skin and tend to appear more frequently in women than men. Some causes of varicose veins are pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain, lack of exercise, prolonged periods of sitting or standing, sun damage and some skin diseases.
Varicose veins are larger veins that bulge above the the skin surface and are commonly found in association with larger and deeper vein problems. Varicose veins often causing aching especially after long periods of standing and although these veins do carry blood , they are not efficient and often not necessary for the circulatory system. The body has already established a different route to carry blood back to the heart.
Therefore these varicose veins can be treated without damaging the circulation.In fact varicose vein treatment often improves venous circulation and the unsightly appearance of the varicose vein is greatly improved.
Varicose veins are formed when the valves in your legs appear not to function very well and allow blood to pool in the legs causing night cramps, tired legs and heavy legs. Varicose veins can develop in pregnancy and during this time it is important to wear compression stockings to help the blood circulate and avoid pooling, which leads to varicose veins.

Treatments for Spider Veins
Are you tired of legs with veins that look like a wire mesh?
Many men and women have spider veins. Spider veins appear as red spider veins, purple spider veins or even blue spider veins and can appear anywhere on the body including the face, neck, chest and legs.
As people age these veins may multiply and be hard to cover up with make up or clothes and can be both embarrassing and frustrating. Spider veins are small blood vessels, capillaries, that are near the surface of the skin. Spider veins are also known as telangiectasias and are usually connected to larger veins but are not an essential part of them. Spider veins may be inherited, due to weight gain, work that requires constant sitting or standing , medications as well as pregnancy in women.
Spider vein treatment is provided by BC Laser and Skin Care Clinic using lasers for spider veins as well as sclerotherapy. To book an assessment with Dr Shah please call 604 580 2464
Spider veins can also be the symptom of a larger problem of varicose veins and in this case the larger varicose vein is treated as well as the small spider veins.
