What is Sclerotherapy?
If you opt for sclerotherapy, you’ll need to refrain from using certain medications like over-the-counter drugs, herbs, and dietary supplements. You’ll also be asked to remove any lotion from your legs prior to treatment.
Once you’re ready for sclerotherapy, you can expect one of our expert providers to sterilize your injection site and inject special chemicals into your veins. The role of the chemicals is to irritate the blood vessel lining and cause the blood vessel to collapse and stick together. Over time, this treatment will allow the vessel to transform into scar tissue and eventually fade away.
It usually takes less than an hour to complete a sclerotherapy treatment. Although you won’t notice results immediately, you’ll likely enjoy positive changes in your spider veins in three to four months. Your veins will not reappear if they respond to the treatment but new spider veins may still make their debut.
