Sclerotherapy is used to treat a wide variety of veins such as:*
Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical technique that is used to treat medium sized veins, spider veins, or broken capillaries.* These veins are common on the thighs or leg but may also be seen on the face or body.
A tiny needle is used to introduce the sclerosing agent into the vein. The agent displaces the blood in the vein and irritates the inside lining into itself. Your body then absorbs it and it disappears. A typical treatment takes from 20–40 minutes and includes multiple injections. There are a number of different “sclerosing agents” that can be used in many different concentrations that vary on the type of vein.*
This is a type of sclerotherapy where the sclerosing agent is mechanically foamed before injected. The advantage of this technique over regular sclerotherapy is that less concentrated solutions can be used due to the increased efficiency, making this an excellent treatment to get rid of spider veins.*
The patented system changes the physical properties of the sclerosing agents making them more effective in targeting the affected segments of the troublesome leg veins. This results in less bruising and quicker recovery.*
Duplex-guided sclerotherapy is a technique the physician can use to more accurately control your procedure. It can be used with both regular sclerotherapy and with microfoam sclerotherapy.
For sclerotherapy for spider veins and other veins, a couple of treatments may be needed for best results. Although results may vary, most veins will diminish in two weeks to two months.*
Sclerotherapy costs range from $185–$365 depending on the number of areas involved, the size and the number of veins. Sclerotherapy Micro-Foam vein injections are typically $365 per treatment and recovery time is even quicker due to the increased efficiency of the process.
Although some patients may feel slight discomfort when injected, most patients do not experience much pain. For patients concerned with discomfort, please call our office to discuss topical anesthetics.
Because the needles used are so tiny, there is little discomfort involved and there is only 2–3 weeks recovery time needed. Micro-Foam recovery is even less due to the increased efficiency of the process.
