Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy for Spide Veins and Reticular Veins
Sclerotherapy is a popular, safe, and effective way to remove unwanted blood vessels. It has been used for centuries to treat unwanted veins. Using a very fine needle, we inject a sclerosant such as sodium tetradecyl sulphate into the faulty vein to irritate the inner lining of the blood vessel causing inflammation followed by hardening of the vein and eventual absorption by your body.
Most patient will feel the pinch of the needle followed by intermittent burning and itching at the injection site for approximately 10 minutes. Depending on the number of veins to be treated, you may require multiple injections in one sitting. You will be asked to wear compression socks for 24 hours, followed by compression socks daily for 12 hours a day for 7 days. Some clients may require maintenance treatments. Although sclerotherapy is a very successful procedure, new veins may form over time due to genetics, age, trauma, hormonal changes, or other unexplained causes.
Please bring medical grade thigh high compression socks on the day of your treatment. The pressure on these must be at least 20mmhg. They can be purchased from your local drug store. Please call us if you need assistance.
