Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for spider and reticular veins in which medication is injected into the veins. This medication causes them to collapse over time and eventually disappear. Because the veins are no longer functioning, blood is rerouted to other working veins in the legs. Sclerotherapy is done in an office setting with the number of treatments varying depending on the extent of the spider veins. Most spider veins appear on the legs, but can be found on the face, feet and ankles.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sclerotherapy?
To determine if you are a good candidate for sclerotherapy, you must have an evaluation by a trained physician or clinician. Some of the characteristics that indicate your ability to tolerate the procedure and benefit from the results include:
- Good physical health with no blood or vein issues
- No history of blood clots
- Have not had a child or breastfed within the last three months
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure where we inject a solution into each spider vein to cause it to contract and collapse. With this treatment, most patients typically see significant improvement after each treatment. Our team determines how many treatments are needed during an evaluation of your condition.
