What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a popular method of eliminating spider veins and small varicose veins using a solution called a sclerosing agent. The sclerosing agent is injected into the effected vein to breakdown the vein wall. ??
Does sclerotherapy work for everyone?
The majority of individuals who receive sclerotherapy treatments will have visible improvement or clearing of the veins completely; however, there is no guarantee that sclerotherapy will be effective in every case. If you are expecting perfection, sclerotherapy may not be the right option for you, as results can vary from individual to individual. Some veins may be too small for sclerotherapy and may require alternative treatment options such as lasers. In some cases, all cosmetic procedures are ineffective in treating spider veins. All clients should wear compressions stockings or hose as directed following treatment to optimize results.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to clear or improve spider veins differ for each person. Number of treatments can range from 1-6 with the average being 2-4. Individual veins may require more than 1 treatment. Over time and as we age, more veins will appear. These vessels may be treated as well, if you choose.
Consultation is required for this procedure but can typically be performed on day of first treatment. Please call with any questions.
