How Does Sclerotherapy Treat Spider and Varicose Veins?

Sclerotherapy is an effective procedure that closes diseased veins. It is a quick, proven treatment that has been successful in thousands of our patients with spider and varicose veins. It uses a simple injection of a sclerosant to close veins.

What Is Cosmetic Sclerotherapy?

Patients seek cosmetic sclerotherapy to improve the appearance of their legs. Spider veins are usually the cause. Sclerotherapy is performed with a very tiny needle. The small patterns of veins are injected with a chemical solution, causing an inflammation of the vein wall. The vein collapses and is eliminated. It may take several weeks, but these damaged veins will eventually fade away. In most cases, two or more sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.

How Does Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy Work?

Ultrasound guides the needle into the diseased vein which is injected and then closed. Before this procedure for varicose veins became popular, more invasive surgical vein removal was performed and frequently resulted in unsightly incisions and scarring.

You don’t have to live with ugly veins. Find out why sclerotherapy may be your fastest, easiest way to eliminate spider veins and varicose veins.

Is Sclerotherapy the Best Vein Treatment for You?

As a minimally invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia, sclerotherapy is an extremely fast and effective treatment for spider veins and varicose veins. It is performed in our clinic setting. Medical sclerotherapy for varicose veins is usually a covered benefit under most insurance plans. The number and size of veins being treated generally determines the number of injections you need. Sclerotherapy for cosmetic spider veins is not recognized as a medical condition and is self-pay.

Discomfort is mild during this treatment. Most of our patients return to their normal routine the same day. Recovery after the procedure involves the use of compression stockings to keep pressure on the treated veins.
