What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment that is used to address spider veins and varicose veins. Although usually harmless, spider veins and varicose veins can be unsightly, and patients choose to pursue treatment in order to achieve clear skin. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a solution, called a sclerosant, into the vein. The sclerosant causes the vein to collapse, leading to a blood clot that prevents blood from flowing through the vein. Once the vein loses its blood supply, it will fade from view as the body breaks it down. The body is filled with thousands of veins, so patients don’t need to worry about this treatment affecting their circulation.
How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?
The cost of your sclerotherapy treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
Can Sclerotherapy Be Used for Varicose Vein Treatment?
Sclerotherapy is one of the most effective treatment options for eliminating the appearance of varicose veins. Many patients are surprised at the results they are able to achieve after just one sclerotherapy treatment. In some cases, however, multiple treatment sessions will be needed to produce the desired results.
Can Sclerotherapy Be Used for Spider Vein Treatment?
Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for addressing spider veins, and is often the treatment of choice. Sclerotherapy usually produces the desired results in a single treatment, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.
What is the Sclerotherapy Treatment Like?
Before your sclerotherapy treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This helps to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Then, we will inject a sclerosant into the desired spider veins or varicose veins. The injection takes only a few minutes, and then the treatment is complete.
What Can I Expect After My Sclerotherapy Treatment?
After your sclerotherapy treatment, the treated veins will clot. You may notice some slight bruising or sensitivity in the treatment area, but this is a common effect of treatment that will fade within a day or two. Over the days and weeks following treatment, the veins will gradually fade from view as the body breaks them down. There is no downtime after sclerotherapy, so you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately.
