Registered Nurse Sclerotherapist
I started treating leg and spider veins in 1994. I know, that's a long time! I began my training at an Atlanta vein center that specialized in treating varicose and spider veins. It is there I honed my skill in the art of performing leg vein injections, also known as sclerotherapy. In 2005, I started working as an independent consultant for a dermatology practice and eventually a vascular practice.
Over the years I have successfully treated thousands of clients with leg and spider vein problems. Through my experience, I have recognized the importance of treating the problem at its source, in order to achieve an optimal aesthetic outcome, reduce symptoms, and provide long lasting results while slowing the progressive nature of veins.
In my years of doing this, from time to time, I hear; "I have had treatment before and it didn't work, is this something that can really work?" I always welcome that question and I love the challenge of proving that treatment can work. I have successfully treated many that have not had success with previous treatment. I am passionate about what I do and I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you, and help get you started on the road to getting rid of your leg and spider veins.
I also work in the hospital as an interventional radiology nurse. When I am not working, I love spending time outdoors with my sweet pooch, Gracie. She is an energetic lab/shepherd rescue dog. We especially love camping, hiking, paddle boarding and fetching tennis balls.
Sclerotherapy effectively treats varicose and spider veins. It's often considered the treatment of choice for small varicose veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. After sclerotherapy, treated veins fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take a month or more to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.

There is little or no down time.
You do not need to wear compression stockings after treatment. You may elevate for up to an hour after your treatment instead.
You may resume normal activities immediately. I encourage you to walk as much as you like.
No hot tub baths or Jacuzzi for 1-2 weeks after each treatment.
Use Sunblock while going through treatment.
My patients tell me I have a gentle technique and tolerate the treatment with minimal discomfort.
Some who seek laser treatment because they think it won’t hurt as much may be misinformed.
I prefer Sclerotherapy over laser because without question, I think it produces better results for leg veins.
"For so long I wanted my legs to be covered so that no one could see my veins. They were so ugly! Now, after treatment, my legs look so much better. I actually wear shorts and sandals every day! Even my friends noctice the difference."
