Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment For Spider & Varicose Veins



Sclerotherapy vein treatment can improve the appearance of underlying spider and varicose vein patterns using a specialized injectable solution. These veins are extremely common around the legs, thighs, hands, arms, or face and can become more prominent as you age. Additional factors, such as genetics, obesity, sun damage, or a gradual loss of skin elasticity may contribute to the appearance of varicose or spider veins. These veins often present themselves as red or blue vein clusters that are directly below the surface of your skin. Spider veins may take away from your overall complexion and make you self-conscious about your appearance. Patients bothered by varicose vein patterns can undergo Sclerotherapy vein treatment. Once injected, the Sclerotherapy solution will collapse unsightly veins, resulting in their gradual disappearance. The result is a smoother, younger-looking skin texture.

Your Sclerotherapy Procedure

Sclerotherapy is generally an in-office treatment, but can be performed at an outpatient surgical facility, if necessary. Sclerotherapy treatment can be completed in approximately 30 minutes. The Sclerotherapy injection is administered into the underlying varicose veins or spider veins. This sclerosant solution begins dissolving the targeted veins after treatment. Over time, the entire vein pattern is broken up, resulting in smoother-looking skin.

Sclerotherapy may be combined with additional laser vein treatments, as well as skin care procedures to improve complexion, such as laser skin rejuvenation, laser acne treatment, or laser skin tightening.
