What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy has become a tried-and-true modality of safely and effectively treating spider veins. This treatment has been performed and improved for over 70 years, proving its efficacy in helping people over the years achieve clearer skin.
This treatment utilizes a salt-based solution to irritate the targeted spider veins. The salt solution works to break down the spider veins and once collapsed, blood flow will naturally reroute to nearby, healthier veins. Collapsing veins are processed by the body and gradually fade from view, creating a clearer even complexion.
What can I expect from the sclerotherapy treatment?
At the start of your treatment the designated area will be cleansed. The salt solution is then carefully administered into the spider veins through a very fine needle. Sclerotherapy sessions typically last anywhere from 15-30 minutes, depending on what you are looking to accomplish.
Who is a good candidate?
Anyone looking to safely and effectively improve spider veins without harsh, invasive measures may consider sclerotherapy. However, women who are pregnant or nursing may be referred to an alternative option.
