Sclerotherapy for larger veins and spider veins

For more advanced cases of larger veins and spider veins, Sclerotherapy can help with their appearance and collapse many of those vessels. The body then absorbs them over the course of 1-3 months on average. Several treatments may be required to achieve the optimum result.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a microinjection procedure that needs no pain medication or surgery to treat varicose and spider veins. Abnormal veins are treated by injecting a solution called a sclerosant, sealing the vein off from the rest of the vein network in your leg and allowing the body to naturally redirect the blood flow to healthy veins. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. The body then initiates the natural healing process and the vein begins to shrink and gets naturally absorbed eventually disappearing. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure and has been used since the 1930s.

Sclerotherapy is performed in our office. The treatment area is cleansed. The solution is injected directly into the blood vessel, using very fine needles. The number of veins injected in one session is variable, depending on the size and location of the veins, and the patient’s overall medical condition.

Sclerotherapy works well for most patients. It is estimated that as many as 50 percent to 80 percent of injected veins may be eliminated with each injection session. A few (less than 10 percent) of the people who have sclerotherapy do not respond to the injections at all. In these instances, different solutions or a different method, such as our top-of-the-line vein laser therapy, may be tried.

In general, spider veins respond to treatment in 3 to 6 weeks, and larger veins respond in 3 to 4 months. If the veins respond to the treatment, usually they will not reappear. However, new veins may appear over time. If needed, you may return for injections.

In order to address your particular needs optimally with the proper system we need to see you in person. So schedule a free cosmetic consultation where Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera can discuss numerous options that we offer in our world class institute.
