Are you bothered by the appearance of spider veins or varicose veins in your skin? Spider and varicose veins are a common cosmetic concern that appear as a twisted sequence of veins from the surface of the skin. Typically red, purple, or blue in color, these vascular lesions are generally found on the legs. While they may not pose a medical danger, they can easily influence feelings of self-consciousness. Sclerotherapy is a commonly practiced form of vein therapy to reduce pesky vascular lesions and help you reclaim clearer skin.

What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a long-practiced form of vein therapy, dating back over 70 years to treat spider and varicose veins in the legs. This amazing treatment utilizes a special solution which is injected into the targeted lesions, causing them to close. The sclerotherapy formula displaces blood in the designated veins, which in turn irritates the lining and results in the vein’s collapse. The body naturally reroutes blood circulation to other nearby healthier veins and fades the collapsed ones from sight.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Patients will be required to wear compression stockings after the first few days from their appointment. These compression stockings are meant to minimize possible swelling or discomfort in the treated area. It’s important to keep in mind that it may take some time for your body to seal, collapse, and fade the targeted veins. Ultimately, results may vary.
How long will my vein therapy treatment take?
Depending on the size and location of the desired treatment areas will determine your treatment time. However, sclerotherapy sessions typically take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, making it an ideal lunch hour treatment.
Who is an ideal candidate for vein therapy?
Anyone who is looking for a minimally invasive means of fading unwanted spider veins or varicose veins may consider this amazing treatment. However, women who are pregnant or nursing may be referred to an alternative option. We would be happy to help you decide if sclerotherapy may be right for you during your consultation.
