What Is Sclerotherapy?
Prominent varicose and spider veins can compromise the appearance of your skin, leading to redness and to an uneven complexion. Sclerotherapy is widely considered to be the most effective option for treating these veins, particularly smaller varicose veins. The procedure involves the injection of a medicinal solution directly into the vein. The solution causes the vein to scar, which reroutes blood flow to healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into your bodily tissue, and eventually fades away altogether.
We are pleased to offer sclerotherapy as a safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment option here at 785 Aesthetic Med Spa.
What Are the Benefits?
There are a number of benefits that come from sclerotherapy, including:
- Reduced appearance of varicose and spider veins
- Smoother, clearer complexion
- Fast in-office procedure
- Potential relief from swelling, night cramps, and symptoms associated with varicose veins
- Minimal recovery required
- Minimal discomfort during the procedure itself
Is It Right for Me?
Sclerotherapy can be a viable option for any patient who wishes to reduce the appearance of smaller varicose and spider veins. To find out more about your eligibility for a safe and successful procedure, consider scheduling a consultation with one of our providers.
How Is It Performed?
When you join us for sclerotherapy, you will receive a warm welcome from our clinical care team, who will then escort you back to a private treatment area. We will ask you to lie on your back with your legs elevated. After we ensure your comfort, we will clean the skin at your treatment site and carefully administer the solution. A local anesthesia may be applied to minimize any discomfort you experience during the procedure.
The number of injections you need simply depends on the number of veins, the size of the veins, and the location of the veins that you wish to be treated.
What Is the Recovery Like?
The recovery associated with sclerotherapy is minimal. While you will need to wear compression socks or bandages for one to two weeks, most patients are ready to walk around and resume all of their normal activities immediately following the procedure. We recommend getting some physical activity, even just a stroll through your neighborhood or office building, to promote healing.
