Spider veins and varicose veins are common problems for the legs. The good news... medical aesthetics has perfected the practice of improving the look of your legs with sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a FDA approved medical procedure that is used to treat uncomplicated spider veins and small varicose veins. A highly trained specialist, injects a prescription medicine directly into the vein, causing the treated vein to seal and fade over time.
This varies depending on the size of the veins and the extent of spider vein spreads. Most clients take two to four treatment sessions to get to near-complete results. While complete elimination of the veins is not guaranteed, most clients will see significant improvement in the weeks after the first treatment.
A typical session is 15 to 45 minutes. Generally, 1 to 3 injections may be necessary. Multiple treatments (if necessary) are booked 1 to 2 weeks apart.
Post treatment, compression stockings should be worn day and night for 2 to 7 days—depending on the type of vein—then 2 to 3 weeks during the daytime. Compression stockings are designed to apply pressure to your legs, helping to maintain blood flow, and reduce discomfort and swelling.
