SCLEROTHERAPY INJECTIONS for spider veins
Sclerotherapy injections are highly popular among patients because they can be used to treat all sizes of spider veins, and also reticular veins. Treatment involves the injection of FDA approved sclerosant directly into surface spider veins. Injections are done with very tiny needles and feel like mosquito bites. Often, in order to eliminate extensive branches of spider veins, injections have to be done to “feeder veins” that are found deeper in the skin. The number of treatment sessions needed and number of injections done during a session will vary from patient to patient.
In our clinic treatment to spider veins is usually done in stages. Initial session if followed by touch up session 6-8 weeks later.
Spider veins and varicose veins are often responsible for that itching and burning sensation of skin on your legs!
Since each patient is different and each has different expectations, therefore we are not able to predict number for touch up sessions needed to meet esthetically pleasing results. Patient undergoing cosmetic treatment of spider veins should have reasonable expectations, as not all veins visible through the skin should be treated.
Post treatment hematomas are common and can be easily aspirated to speed up healing process. Small ulcer formation in site of injection d/t sclerosant contact with skin, might occur. Pigmentation, if it occurs, might last for several months.
