Spider Vein Treatment (Sclerotherapy)
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. During sclerotherapy, the physician injects a solution directly into the affected vein, which then fades from view over time. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure and has been used since the 1930s.
Dr. Ariss will use a topical anesthetic to relieve any discomfort. The injection process, done in the office, is typically complete in 30 minutes. After the treatment you will be able to drive yourself home. You may resume your regular activities and are encouraged to walk. Any discomfort can be easily managed with over the counter pain medications, and is alleviated by the use of compression hosiery. Some mild bruising, itching, and swelling at the injection site is normal, but otherwise side effects are uncommon and short in duration.
In general, spider veins respond to treatment in 3 to 6 weeks, and larger veins respond in 3 to 4 months. If the veins respond to the treatment, usually they will not reappear.
