Thinking about removing those stubborn and unsightly spider and varicose veins from your legs and hands that do more harm to the body than good? The expert doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are highly experienced at performing a number of treatments to take care of those unwanted leg and hand veins, including sclerotherapy, laser vein removal, and phlebectomy.
However, if you are determined as a candidate for sclerotherapy after initial consultation, we highly consider choosing this treatment in removing your unwanted veins. With that being said, here are five reasons why choosing sclerotherapy for spider and varicose veins might be the best treatment for a patient to approach:
- A Non-Invasive, Safe Procedure
Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment in which one of our board-certified dermatologists injects a chemical, called a sclerosant, into the vein, causing it to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body. It is often noted that the procedure is quick and easy, usually lasting about 30 minutes, depending upon the size of the area, and generally a lot less painful than laser therapy. To ensure that you receive the safest and most effective treatments possible, visit one of our expert vein injectors and board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology.
- Outpatient Procedure
Sclerotherapy is an outpatient procedure, meaning that this allows a person to return home on the same day that the treatment is performed. In other words, there is very minimal downtime following sclerotherapy and patients are encouraged to walk and continue normal activities.
- Most Effective On Spider Veins/Smaller Varicose Veins
Sclerotherapy is most effective on spider veins or smaller varicose veins, especially on hands and legs, and is often the best choice for the treatment of spider veins because it's more effective than laser treatment. The treatment is technically much more difficult but yields better, more reliable results for leg veins. Some spider veins are too small or resistant to be treated with sclerotherapy and are better candidates for laser treatment.
- Immediate Results
Results are generally dependent on each patient but with many it is possible to notice an immediate improvement right away, visibly seeing veins disappear in front of your eyes. At times, a patient may require 2-3 treatments. Over the course of the next several days or weeks, compression stockings are worn on the treated legs following the injections while the sclerosant continues to spread for optimal results.
Sclerotherapy is by far the least expensive vein treatment compared to other laser vein therapies. Pricing does depend on the amount of visits and treatment sessions a patient makes, but regardless, lasers are still very expensive and hurt much more than injections.
