Have you ever looked at your legs and realized that you have spider veins? These are the unattractive veins that are usually blue with the occasional purple tinge. They also look like small webs or spider webs underneath your skin. Fortunately, sclerotherapy is an option to consider that involves little to no recovery time and results that you can see shortly after the procedure.
When you come to our office, your legs will be examined to determine the severity of your spider veins. Once it’s determined that sclerotherapy is the best option, you can plan for your procedure, during which we will inject a special solution into your spider veins. Once the solution is inside your veins, it begins to irritate the lining. This causes the vein to collapse. Blood that is inside the vein will clot, and the appearance of the spider vein will go away in time.
Just like any other procedure, some patients are better candidates for sclerotherapy than others. There are a few reasons as to why you might not be able to have sclerotherapy performed to treat spider veins. The good news is we offer multiple vein treatment options at our office, and the right treatment for you can ultimately be determined during a consultation.
It usually only takes minutes to complete this procedure. Although multiple veins can be treated in one procedure, you need to understand that the full results are not immediate with sclerotherapy. In the days and weeks following the appointment, you should begin to notice a marked improvement in how your spider veins look. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that results vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
Schedule your appointment at Nowak Aesthetics to have your spider veins taken care of with sclerotherapy so that you’re not ashamed to show off your legs. One of the best things about this treatment is that no anesthesia is required. This non-surgical treatment is designed to be quick and simple, even for those with busy schedules and lifestyles.
