Sclerotherapy results

Sclerotherapy Albuquerque & Santa Fe

Spider veins that appear on your legs are an aesthetic issue, but their effect on your confidence is nothing to ignore. If discolored spider veins have you covering up your legs, sclerotherapy may be the right solution for you. This treatment fades problem veins so you enjoy smooth, clear skin. 

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment used to treat pesky spider veins. A sclerosing solution is injected directly into the small spider veins, and the solution causes damage to the vein’s inner walls. The treated vein collapses and fades away over time, erasing the appearance of your unwanted spider veins. Sclerotherapy is usually the preferred spider vein treatment.

Do you have red, blue, or purple veins on your legs that look like webs or branches? These spider veins are small, damaged veins under the skin. They will not return to normal without treatment. Fortunately, sclerotherapy has been used for decades for effective spider vein removal. This treatment can help you achieve smooth, clear skin you feel comfortable with. 

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is an injectable spider vein treatment. It is injected directly into your spider veins, closing them and stopping blood flow. It is considered the “gold standard” of spider vein treatments due to its safety and effectiveness, even after decades of use. Sclerotherapy is a quick, in-office treatment with little to no downtime and excellent results.

Spider veins are a common cosmetic issue for many people. These small, damaged veins can make you self-conscious about the appearance of your legs. Sclerotherapy offers a way to eliminate spider veins with just a few injections.

What is Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins?

Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment for spider veins and small varicose veins. It uses a compound called a sclerosant that hardens and damages the vein walls. This damage causes the vein to collapse, stopping blood flow. Blood will easily divert to healthier veins. As the “gold standard” treatment for spider veins, sclerotherapy is safe and widely used.

Spider veins can be a visual nuisance, even though they may never cause you any pain. When they first appear on the legs or face, you may not think much about them, but as they expand across your body like a web of tiny red or purple lines, they can cause you to be embarrassed, less confident, and make you feel as though you should hide behind clothing or makeup. It is so important to take care of your physical health and that definitely includes caring for your veins. Sclerotherapy treatments have a very high success rate for treating spider veins, making this treatment the favorite of doctors and patients alike. Here is what you can expect after having sclerotherapy injections for your spider veins.
