Spider veins, those red, blue and purl twisting veins that can develop and stick out on our legs like an eyesore are extremely common. About 60% of people have spider veins and many feel self-conscious of their spider veins and wish there were a way to make them disappear. Now, through Sclerotherapy we are able to do just that. This quick and painless procedure requires no downtime for recovery and leaves no scars behind. It is a non-surgical treatment that is performed using a syringe that injects a small amount of a sclerosing agent into the offending spider veins to damage that vessel wall. Following the procedure, in 3 to 4 weeks, the treated vessels gradually fade away.
Directly after the procedure is performed, the patient must walk around for 15 minutes before leaving and they must also wear compression stockings. Generally, two to three treatments are needed to achieve maximum results with 90% or better improvement.
