What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that diminishes the appearance of spider veins. A chemical, the sclerosant, is injected with a fine needle into the targeted vein to irritate the inner lining of the vein. This eventually causes the vein to collapse. The pooled blood that was once in the diseased vein then redirects into surrounding healthy and normal functioning veins. Over time, the collapsed veins turn into scar tissue, fade from view, and are naturally removed from the body.
At Beauty Boost Med Spa, we use Asclera (polidocanol), a sclerosing agent indicated to treat uncomplicated spider veins (varicose veins ≤1 mm in diameter) and uncomplicated reticular veins (varicose veins 1 to 3 mm in diameter) in the lower extremity.
Once delivered, the medical solution irritates the inner lining of the vein. This eventually causes the vein to collapse. The pooled blood that was once in the diseased vein then redirects into surrounding healthy and normal functioning veins. Over time, the collapsed veins turn into scar tissue, fade from view, and are naturally removed from the body. Sclerotherapy is most popularly used to treat small visible veins in areas of the legs, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of small veins in other various parts of the body.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The strength of the solution and the volume injected is dependent on the size and extent of the varicose veins. Extensive varicosities may require multiple treatment sessions separated by 6-8 weeks.
Patients are required to bring compression stockings to their treatment session. In most cases, these stockings are available for purchase at a pharmacy or online.
