When most people in Vancouver start to see spider veins on their legs, ankles, and feet, they may not like the way they look, but they do not necessarily start to worry. They may think that the spider veins will not progress, and since they are so light, no one will really notice. Unfortunately, spider veins usually progress to a point where they are visible to everyone. Once the process starts, it does not slow down. Spider veins are usually not cured on your own. This underscores the importance of having spider veins treated as soon as possible. It is much easier to treat them when they have not spread in large patterns. One of the treatments we offer is sclerotherapy.
What is sclerotherapy treatment like? The basic idea behind the treatment involves injecting a solution into the offending veins. The solution is designed to irritate the veins. After some time, the veins will collapse and then die. Any blood that was trying to run through those veins will be rerouted to veins that are not visible and are healthy. Over time, your body will absorb those veins that were treated and then they will fade away. Most individuals see the best results after a couple of months from the initial treatment. In some cases, it may be advisable to return for another session. This is something that we will determine after your initial treatment.
