Introducing CLaCS (Cryo Laser Cryo Sclerotherapy)

A Revolutionary New Treatment for Spider Veins and Prominent Blue Veins of the Legs and Feet

CLaCS (Cryo Laser Cryo Sclerotherapy) treats both the surface spider veins and the “feeder veins” below the spider veins. The treatment consists of the following:

  • Visualization of the below skin “feeder veins” using augmented reality (VeinViewer) allowing targeting for treatment
  • Laser treatment of the “feeder veins” below the skin
  • Laser treatment of the spider veins
  • Sclerotherapy of the “feeder veins”
  • Sclerotherapy of the spider veins
  • Skin anesthesia: a numbing of the skin during the laser and injections with ice cold air blown on the skin resulting in minimal discomfort

CLaCS results in better aesthetic appearance of the legs with more permanent results. Dallas Vein Specialists is the first to offer this remarkable procedure.
