Relief From Unsightly Veins
Sclerotherapy is a great choice for getting rid of those unwanted spider and reticular veins that have become a cosmetic concern. Sclerotherapy can work wonders to reduce the appearance of unsightly veins in the legs, arms, chest, or hands
This minimally invasive treatment is one of the safest and most effective treatments available for treating spider veins (also referred to as telangiectasias). This relatively painless procedure involves injecting the vein in question using a very fine needle, with a sclerosing agent causing the vein to collapse and blood to reroute through healthier veins. Within a few weeks, the collapsed vein is reabsorbed into the body and fades from view. WE recommend wearing compression stockings for a certain period after the procedure. These stockings help promote circulation and reduce swelling.
The full results will be seen within 4 to 8 weeks. If veins are still visible it may be recommended to have another sclerotherapy treatment session. It is common to require 2 to 3 sessions to completely clear unwanted veins using sclerotherapy.
