If you want to simply and quickly get rid of those tiny blue veins on your legs, sclerotherapy is the spider vein treatment of choice. It is minimally-invasive and permanently removes spider veins. It also eliminates any related symptoms, such as burning, swelling, night cramps and aching. It may be just what you have been looking for to make your spider veins a thing of the past.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a medical treatment performed by a trained, certified technician. A chemical solution called a sclerosant is injected into the spider vein, sealing it shut. The treated vein is absorbed by the surrounding tissue and disappears in just weeks or months depending on the size and extent of the veins.
What to Expect
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive spider vein treatment that is done in the comfort of our office in the Orlando, FL area. The treatment usually takes just minutes to complete depending on the number of veins being treated.
Once the vein is damaged during the spider vein treatment, the specialist can put a little pressure on the vein to make sure it stays closed. Any blood that normally flows through the spider vein will automatically transfer to another vein.
How to Prepare for Sclerotherapy
When you have a consultation with our professional, your medical history will be examined and every step of the procedure will be explained to you. We may perform some tests to make sure you don’t have any underlying vein problems, such as deep varicose veins. Some questions you will most likely be asked are:
• Are you pregnant?
• Do you have pre-existing medical conditions, such as cancer or heart disease?
• What prescription or over-the-counter medications do you take?
• Do you smoke or take oral contraceptives?
• Do you have any allergies?
Once the spider veins are gone, they will not return. However, new spider veins may form. To avoid this, you may ask our specialist how to avoid new spider veins.
