WHAT IS SCLEROTHERAPY?
Telangiectasia, which is better known as spider veins, can be caused by genetics, obesity, hormonal changes, medications, blood clots, and medical conditions. These veins are usually blue, purple, or red and can be visible through the skin while they branch out on the legs and face. Our team performs sclerotherapy to reduce or remove visible spider veins on the face and body. A nonsurgical treatment with no required recovery period, sclerotherapy may help you get more beautiful skin.

HOW DOES SCLEROTHERAPY WORK?
Sclerotherapy treatments are a good option for patients who are bothered by small or medium blood vessels that can be seen through the skin of their face and body. Sclerotherapy patients must be in good health and should not have a history of blood clots or be pregnant. The treatment is performed in a private room within a short time and typically without anesthesia. The spider veins being treated will be determined, and then a fine-gauge needle will be inserted into the vein and the sclerosing solution will be applied. The needle will be removed and gauze will be applied to the injection site to stop any minor bleeding. This procedure can be repeated to treat all spider veins. Once you are done with your sclerotherapy treatment, you can resume your normal activities. You may see some redness, bruising, or swelling in the treated areas, but this will usually subside naturally. It can take a while for the treatment to show results, but the treated spider veins should shrink, turn white, and then fade or disappear. You may need at least two treatments to get your best results, but most people are happy with their results after the first session.
