About Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy treats varicose veins, spider veins and blood vessel malformations by causing the target vein and any feeder veins to shrink and dissolve, eventually leaving skin vein-free. Typically, a sclerosing solution is injected into the vessels, causing them to immediately shrink, close off and eventually disappear. Several treatments may be necessary to get desired results. Results are long term and while new spider veins may form, veins that have been treated with sclerotherapy should not return.

Randy Birken, MD, FACS, FACOG

After completing his training at Baylor College of Medicine in 1980, Dr. Birken began a general ob/gyn practice in North Houston. His interest in female urology led to further training in uro-gynecology and a change to a subspecialized practice in gynecology, gynecological surgery, female incontinence, and pelvic reconstruction.

"In office aesthetic procedures always fascinated me, and with the advancement of laser technology, amazingly simple and safe cosmetic procedures became a reality."

Dr. Birken thoroughly researched the science and practicality of in office lasers and chose the Cutera Cool-Glide system and Intense pulse light. Further training and certification, as directed by the Texas Board of Medical Examiners, permits him to offer these services to patients.

In addition to his medical degree, Dr. Birken has a Master's in Liberal Arts and has taught undergraduate literature. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Medicine and has written two books being considered for publication, as well as a novel.
