3 Things you should know before considering treatment...

BEHIND THE VEINS

Though most people seek treatment for cosmetic reasons, there are underlying causes and problems that should be looked at as well. Spider Veins are a sign of circulatory problems. Don’t just go anywhere for treatment, visit a trusted doctor specializing in Vascular care.

EXPERIENCE IS KEY

Spider Vein Treatment is very technique sensitive. You should consider a doctor and team that has experience and specializes in this type of treatment.

EVERY PATIENT IS DIFFERENT

We recommend that all patients come to a consultation at one of our 3 offices and gather more information. Every patient is different and should be treated as such.

Sclerotherapy Treatment for Spider Veins

Spider veins can be treated with a combination of laser and sclerotherapy injections. Sclerotherapy causes inflammation in the blood vessel wall resulting in closure of the blood vessel.  The body then reabsorbs the spider vein much like it would a bruise. The laser may be used in conjunction to decrease the size of the vein and cause a double injury to that treated vein. Not all patients are candidates for laser. By incorporating the laser we are able to reduce the total number of treatments.

5 Main Benefits of Sclerotherapy

  • Most popular and effective treatment available
  • Out-patient procedure
  • Low risk procedure with few complications

F.A.Q. About Spider Veins Treatment

Real answers from our doctors

WE HAVE COMPILED A LIST OF THE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR YOUR EDUCATION.

ARE THE TREATMENTS PAINFUL?

The Sclerotherapy procedure requires that a very small needle be used and many patients are pleased that they can hardly tell they are being injected. The solution is not painful which makes Sclerotherapy a mostly pain free procedure. If there is postprocedural pain, over the counter pain reducers like, Advil, Tylenol or Ibuprofen is all that will be required.

HOW IS SCLEROTHERAPY PERFORMED?

Using a very fine needle, the veins are injected with a sclerosing solution.  During and after the injections most people describe a mild burning or stinging sensation which lasts for 3-5 minutes. At each treatment session, many veins may be injected at multiple sites. Following treatment a compression stocking is applied and this must be worn for the recommended duration to maintain pressure on the treated veins and stop them refilling with blood. If there is postprocedural pain, patients may take over the counter pain reducers like Advil, Tylenol or Ibuprofen.  One leg is usually treated at each session, and more than one treatment may be required on each leg. Treated veins fade gradually over 6 – 12 weeks.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL YOU NEED?

Most patients require 3-5 monthly sessions (one spider vein treatment every 30 days). Each treatment session takes about 20 minutes with minimal to no discomfort. Compression stockings are worn for 2 days to minimize bruising.

ARE THERE ANY COMPLICATIONS?

ENDOVENOUS LASER ABLATION TREATMENT VEINS SPIDER VEINS

Injections or Sclerotherapy is very safe but with any procedure, there are some minor potential risks. The most common is mild itching and bruising. This itching resolves in a matter of minutes and the bruising resolves in 5-7 days. There have been rare reported cases of allergic reaction and on occasion, a small sore can occur at the injection site that resolves in 4-6 weeks.
