Do you find yourself wearing long pants year-round because your unsightly spider veins embarrass you? Spider veins are thin, visible veins that sprawl across the surface of the skin, resembling spider legs or webs. They are typically bluish, red or purple in color and are found mostly on the legs, feet and face.
Spider veins typically don’t exhibit any symptoms and are often considered a cosmetic issue. If this describes your legs, then spider vein treatment (which is officially referred to as sclerotherapy) can help. It is a simple, inexpensive treatment. Call today and start now.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive medical procedure that eliminates spider veins by injecting a special sclerosing solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing the vein to collapse and become virtually unnoticeable after being absorbed by your body. This treatment is safe, effective and has little to no down time.
During the month of January, we are offering our sclerotherapy treatments for only $150. Get your spider veins taken care of over the winter months so you’ll be ready to show your legs off once the weather warms back up.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure to treat uncomplicated spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins. The treatment involves the injection of a solution into the affected veins. The solution or sclerosing agent works by damaging the inner wall of the vein, and eventually causing the vein to collapse on its self. Over time, the damaged vein is replaced with tissue. Individual results may vary, and many patients will require multiple injection sessions for complete treatment success.
How Soon Will The Vessels Disappear?
Each vessel usually requires one to three treatments. The vessels disappear over a period of 2 weeks to 3 months. Recurrences may occur over a period of 1 to 5 years, but this is rare. However, this treatment does not prevent new vessels from developing.
A typical session lasts 15 to 45 minutes.
After treatment you can resume normal activity. It might be recommended that you wear compression stockings for 5-7 days after treatment. You may have some bruising in treated areas but this is usually not severe. You will see results anywhere from 2 to 12 weeks.
You should for 2-3 days after treatment avoid:
Long plane flights or car rides
Sun exposure for at least 6 weeks after treatment
