Have you experienced spider veins? These tiny blood vessels may not present any serious medical problems, but they can be a nuisance, especially if they appear on your legs or face. Thankfully, there is highly effective and easy treatment to help eliminate those veins and help you look as fabulous as you feel. We are proud to offer sclerotherapy spider vein treatment to get you back to looking and feeling like yourself.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy spider vein treatment is the therapy of choice to treat spider veins. Treatments are non-surgical, quick, effective, and can have you seeing results in as little as weeks.
What are the Benefits?
There are many benefits to sclerotherapy spider vein treatment, including the fact that treatments are safe and effective. Other benefits include:
- Minimally-invasive (no surgery)
- No hospitalization (no extensive downtime—get back to your life quickly)
- Few risks (mild side effects; if you have any, they usually dissipate quickly)
- Little to no prep
- High success rates
How Does It Work?
We inject a special solution into the targeted vein. This solution will cause the vein to collapse. Your blood will be rerouted into healthier blood vessels, and the spider vein will fade as it becomes absorbed by the surrounding tissue. We may recommend support hosiery or compression pads to help the spider vein absorb into the surrounding tissues more quickly.
Sclerotherapy spider vein treatment can typically be done very quickly, depending on how many veins you are having treated at a time and other factors. Once the treatment is complete, you can return to your regular schedule, for the most part. It is important to follow our doctor’s instructions and recommendations following treatment in order to help promote healing and maximize your results.
When Can I Expect Results?
Results largely depend on the size of the veins being treated. Larger veins may require a series of treatments to fade completely. These veins may also take longer to respond to the treatment due to their size. If veins respond favorably to the treatment, they will not reappear—once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
If you suffer from spider veins, you don’t have to continue living with them. They are easily treatable, with no set downtime and relatively quick results.
