Spider Vein Treatment
Sclerotherapy, better known as Spider Vein Treatment, is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve the appearance of leg spider veins. The veins are injected with a solution that damages the internal lining of the vein, causing it to close. The solution works with your body to collapse the vein, and, in time, will cause it to disappear.
One of our experienced, well-trained nurses will cleanse your skin and inject the Sclerotherapy solution directly into the vein with little to mild discomfort. Our patients boast that the treatment is virtually pain free! The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of veins being injected during a session.
Anticipated Recovery & Results
Sclerotherapy generally does not require any recovery period in that you will be able to return to your normal activities right after your treatment. We do recommend that you avoid strenuous leg exercises, excessive sun exposure, and hot tubs and hot baths for about 5-10 days after treatment in order to get the best result. After your appointment, you will need to wear support stockings for 5-7 days (you do not need to wear them at night).
