Sclerotherapy / Spider Veins

Have those ugly “spider” veins on your legs been bothering you? Or are you embarrassed to wear shorts or skirts? If you are a little shy about your legs – NOW is the best time to come in so you can show off those legs!!! Getting rid of unwanted leg veins has never been easier.

For over 150 years, a technique known as sclerotherapy has been used. This involves injecting a saltwater solution into the offending vein. The vein immediately shrinks and is reabsorbed by the body over time. Injections of sclerosing agents are the “gold standard” and are superior to lasers for treatment of spider veins as the sclerosing agents get to the “root” of the problem and actually stop “feeder veins” from causing more problems.

A few treatments are needed to see dramatic improvement. In addition, best results are seen with use of a compression garment or stockings post treatment.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

In about two weeks.

We recommend 3-5 treatments every two weeks for best results.

HOW LONG WILL THESE RESULTS LAST?

Individual results may vary and depends on genetics, activities, and many other factors.

TREATMENT TIME:

Depends on extent of the area being treated and the number of target veins. Full legs usually take one hour.

MEDICATIONS TO AVOID PRIOR TO TREATMENT:

Discuss with us and your primary physician your exact medication list prior to stopping, but typically avoid your blood thinners (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol, omegas, flaxseed oil, fish oil, vitamin D3, and vitamin E) for 3-5 days prior to your treatment.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS:

Bruising can occur and may last up to two weeks.

Extremely rare complications may include a change in skin color, redness, allergic reaction (although extremely rare with saltwater solutions), thrombophlebitis, venous thromboembolism, skin ulcerations, or visual disturbances.
