Sclerotherapy is a treatment to eliminate spider veins (we do not offer this treatment for varicose veins).
Most Common Uses
- elimination of spider veins, primarily on the legs
What to Expect During and After Treatment
Using a very fine needle, I will inject a saline solution directly into the spider vein. If your treatment area is your legs, you will bring a compression garment to wear home.
- No working out or strenuous activity for 72 hours
- No sun exposure to treatment area for 8 weeks
Is It for You?
I will review your medical history and inspect your areas of concern to determine if this treatment will be an effective solution for you. Pregnant and nursing moms are not candidates.
Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a saline solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.
