As we age, spider veins and varicose veins can creep up on us. Sometimes they’re due to fluctuations in hormones, but other times they’re simply caused by genetics.

Why should you contact us today to find out if this treatment can work for you? Read on to discover everything that you need to know about this treatment!
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment. Instead, it works by employing minimally-invasive injections. The forumla in the injections causes the veins to shrink, collapse, and disintegrate. The injection is usually composed of sodium chloride, but the ingredients depend entirely on what will be effective in treating your veins.
Sclerotherapy is one of the few forms of treatment on the market and it boasts a very high success rate. It has also been known to improve some of the symptoms associated with varicose veins, such as night cramps, burning, and aching in the legs.
What to Expect During and After Treatment
Treatment is a relatively quick and efficient process. It doesn’t usually take more than an hour! Because it is non-surgical, recovery time is minimal. You’ll be able to walk and move around directly following the procedure.
Although results are rapid in comparison to similar treatment methods for spider veins, they will not come immediately. Generally, you will need to wait several weeks to see the disappearance of smaller veins, and up to a few months to see the disappearance of larger veins.
Sclerotherapy permanently eradicates the spider veins and varicose veins that it treats. These veins are gone for good! And while it cannot completely prevent new veins from appearing, it can greatly slow the process, and give any new spider and varicose veins a smaller and milder appearance.
Who is a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for sclerotherapy is an individual of healthy weight who is in good cardiovascular health. Additionally, sclerotherapy typically offers the best results for individuals with slightly darker skin tones; however, it is a truly great option of spider vein removal for most healthy individuals.
Sclerotherapy is a successful and reliable treatment for varicose veins and spider veins. In fact, it has been used by doctors since the 1930s!
