Small Leak at Condensor

So I detected a small leak where the lines enter the condenser. Before going the whole nine yards with evacuating, replacing orings, etc., I figured that I would just tighten the two 10mm bolts that attach the lines to the condenser and see if that will stop the slight leak. I went to the auto parts store to buy a small can of 134a to replace what I have lost in gas and I saw a can that said it is for high mileage vehicles. Apparently it has some stop leak in it. At first I thought this maybe exactly what I should use being that it is a small leak, but after reading bad things about stop leaks in a/c system, I am questioning whether or not to use it. I guess my question is, should I use this high mileage one or not? Is there a difference between this high mileage can that has stop leak in small letters on it than the can that has stop leak in big letters on it?
