Sclerotherapy is one of the most effective treatments for spider veins, as well as varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is minimally invasive and causes little to no pain or discomfort while eliminating the appearance of problem veins.
Effective sclerotherapy begins with disclosing realistic expectations. First and foremost, the legs will never be perfect nor will they look they’re 16-year-old legs anymore (sorry!). Anyone promising different is not being truthful. Each 35-40 minute treatment session will cause some inflammatory reaction of the veins, followed by 4 weeks or so of healing. Each session can be expected to produce 50-70% visual improvement, before being able to repeat the treatment in the same region. Our endpoint will be your own visual satisfaction of the resolution of the spider veins.
SPCVA physicians use one of just 2 FDA approved agents for sclerotherapy. It entails the injection of a special chemical solution into the affected vein through a very small needle. This treatment can be used for either spider veins or smaller varicose veins. After the blood coagulates and the treated vein collapses, blood will gradually be rerouted by your body through nearby healthy veins. You should see continuing improvement in the appearance of the area for up to a month.
