Sclerotherapy is designed to safely and effectively eliminate spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure that involves the injection of a solution causing unsightly veins to scar, forcing blood to into healthier vessels. Whether a patient seeks treatment for purely aesthetic reasons, or to alleviate the discomfort and heaviness in their legs associated with varicose veins, once the treated vein has collapsed, the body naturally reroutes blood flow to nearby healthier veins. Over time, the treated veins will fade from view, leaving behind clearer, more radiant skin.
Practiced for nearly 100 years and considered the gold standard of treatment for spider veins, Sclerotherapy can be a great addition to any aesthetic practice. Sclerotherapy is intended to treat veins that are not protruding from the skin. Ideal candidates are those who have small clusters of veins throughout the mid-thigh spreading down to the calf area. The ankles and feet are not areas of treatment for this service.
