Sclerotherapy

Varicose veins are unsightly, dark, enlarged veins. Sclerotherapy causes the vein to close, fade, and often completely disappear. We can help you.

Sclerotherapy

Family Med Spa offers a simple remedy for unsightly spider veins and varicose veins. Sclerotherapy has been an effective treatment since the 1930s. A solution is injected into the vessels, making them shrink. Over a few weeks, the veins dissolve and are absorbed into the body. The veins are gone forever.

The Procedure

Typically, sclerotherapy uses a salt water solution injected into the vein with a very fine needle. During this time, you may experience a couple of minutes of cramping or discomfort which becomes more noticeable with larger veins. Depending on the individual, the whole thing is over in less than 30 minutes. Sounds easy, right?

The side effects are generally mild, like an itching feeling for a couple of days. After sclerotherapy, you may also notice the injection areas are red and raised. This will also go away after a short time. The injection area may become bruised.

Other sclerotherapy side effects last longer, but eventually dissipate as well. Larger treated veins may become hard and lumpy , and can take a few months to dissolve. The treated veins may become dark or cause spots. These too will go away after a few months. Also, new tiny veins may appear but, again, they should go away with a little time. An allergic reaction also may occur, but is rarely serious.

Effectiveness

The research tells us that up to 80 percent of injected veins will disappear at each session. However, a very small number of individuals do not respond to sclerotherapy at all. When this happens, other solutions are available. While sclerotherapy works for most people, and is proven highly effective, there is no guarantee.

With sclerotherapy, spider veins tend to disappear between three and six weeks. Varicose veins may take up to four months. However, once they are gone, they are gone. Veins that respond to sclerotherapy will not return. Even so, new veins may become visible. Additional treatment may be needed, and the total number of sessions depends on the number of veins and how well you respond.
