How to Get Rid of Embarrassing Spider Veins Using Sclerotherapy
- Posted on: Sep 15 2019
At Asarch Center for Dermatology, Laser and Mohs Surgery, patients in the area of Colorado have access to a myriad of solutions for the skin, hair, nails, and body. When patients are upset over the development of spider veins, they may be unsure as to the aesthetic options available to them. With the use of a procedure known as sclerotherapy, patients can combat spider veins, and even varicose veins, that are bothersome.
What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that is performed at the office of Asarch Center for Dermatology, Laser and Mohs Surgery to combat spider and varicose veins. The procedure involves the administration of a special sclerosing solution directly into the problematic vein to facilitate collapse. Once the vein has collapse, the blood is redirected through the healthier veins. The collapsed vein is absorbed naturally by the body and fades away from the skin.
Why choose sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is the most reliable method of vein removal for our patients. It is minimally invasive and can help with related symptoms from spider and varicose veins including aching, cramping, and swelling. When the veins are treated in this manner, they often fade within a few weeks and up to several months for full results. If the vein condition is severe, more than one treatment may be required on the same vein.
How long does the procedure take?
Sclerotherapy is performed relatively quickly at Asarch Center for Dermatology, Laser and Mohs Surgery. Our doctors are experienced in ensuring effective results, and can help patients through the healing process afterward.
What should l expect after the procedure?
- Patients should stand up and walk around immediately after their treatment to prevent blood clots from forming and to maximize the final results.
- Patients should use graduated compression stockings over the treatment area for several weeks to maintain appropriate pressure on the problematic veins.
- Patients can often return to normal activities, outside of exercise, immediately after their procedure.
- Patients should avoid sun exposure to the legs for two weeks after the procedure.
