We understand that spider veins
can be a cosmetic concern for many people, and that is why we offer sclerotherapy treatment
as a safe and effective solution to make your legs look and feel better.
Our sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade away. This treatment is recommended for people who have not seen improvement with other conservative measures.
What this Procedure Involves
Before the procedure, our professional healthcare providers
will examine the affected area and may use imaging technology to map out the veins to be treated. During the procedure, a solution is injected into the affected veins using a very fine needle, causing the vein to shrink and be reabsorbed by the body.
After the procedure, the patient may be advised to keep laying down at least 15 minutes to ensure there is no bad reaction to the injected chemicals. Patients can drive themselves back to home and may return to their daily activities including walking.
Sclerotherapy Treatment After Care
Your healthcare provider will ask you to follow these guidelines for 48 hours after the procedure:
- Use mild soap and lukewarm water to wash injection sites.
- Protect the body especially the treated site from direct sunlight exposure including tanning beds and sun tanning.
- Don’t sit in a sauna or whirlpool or take hot baths. Only take cold water showers.
- Avoid applying any form of heat including hot compresses on the treated areas.
