What is Sclerotherapy?
Using an extremely small needle through a microinjection technique, a saline solution is injected into the undesired blood vessels. This will dry out the vessel cells with scar tissue so that the vessels can no longer transport blood, and will, therefore, no longer appear visible. An improvement in the vessel’s appearance may continue for up to two months after your treatment session. Compression stockings must be worn afterwards to maintain pressure on the treated veins. Although the number of necessary treatment varies according to each individual, most see improvement after one to two treatments, separated by at least a month.
We offer sclerotherapy for spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins look like tiny colored webs of vessels just under the skin. Varicose veins are more obvious and may bulge under the skin and cause discomfort.
Benefits of Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for spider veins and varicose veins. The procedure requires no downtime and is minimally-invasive.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sclerotherapy Treatments?
If you have spider veins and varicose veins, we recommend that you be evaluated by your family physician to determine the cause of the veins. In some cases, there is an underlying condition that requires treatment. Once that condition is controlled and well-managed, you may be a good candidate for sclerotherapy.
How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?
The cost of sclerotherapy varies and is discussed in full during your initial consultation. We offer our patients financing options that may allow you to make affordable monthly payments.
