Sclerotherapy (Leg Vein Treatment)
Spider veins are small enlarged superficial blood vessels that appear at the skin surface as red or blue. Spider veins commonly occur on the legs.
These dilated blood vessels may be short, unconnected hair-like lines, or connected in a “sunburst” pattern. Sometimes, spider veins occur in a small area and aren’t very noticeable. Other times, they can cover a large area of skin and be very unattractive. Larger dilated blood vessels (called reticular veins) may appear blue or green through the skin’s surface and often occur along with spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is injection therapy for spider veins and larger reticular veins of the leg. The procedure is simple. Veins are injected with a solution which causes the veins to collapse and fade from view. The number of treatments depends on the amount and severity of your condition and the results that you hope to achieve.

Dr. Channing Barnett is an excellent dermatologist. Professional, knowledgeable, personable and never keeps you waiting or rushes you. I would refer any friend or family member to Dr. Barnett. She is truly a great dermatologist!
I have been a patient of Dr. jay Barnett for about 20 years. I have been so happy with the care I get in the office. Then I met Dr. Channing and she is a plus to the office. I have sent at least 10 new patients including my 88 year-old mom. Need I say more about a great father and daughter team.
I went to Dr. Barnett because I have been experiencing horrible adult acne for the past three months. I tried every product from drugstore topical treatments, expensive designer or name brand products, and was prescribed some antibiotics and a topical cream, but nothing was working. It had all been very stressful and I felt like I lost all my self-confidence and was desperate to try something that would work.
I just want to say how pleased I am with my procedure! Dr. Jay Barnett did an excellent, precise job with the silicone injections into my acne scars. I can finally walk around with confidence. This had done wonders for my self image. I only wish we took after pictures to see the mind blowing difference
Dear Dr. Channing Barnett, The internet has made searching for a doctor much easier. We can research a doctor's education, experience, location and review comments made by other patients. Still, there is a lot of luck involved in selecting the right doctor. I was very lucky. From the moment I walked through the door of Barnett Dermatology, I knew I made the right choice. Great doctor! Great team. Not only would I highly recommend Barnett Dermatology, but I am planning to go back myself. Thanks for being you
