Sclerotherapy Treatment

One of the challenges of aging is the unexpected changes in our bodies, such as visible veins.
Spider veins can be caused by pregnancy, genetics, rosacea, sun exposure, and many other reasons, often leaving people feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious. If spider veins are making you hide your legs, sclerotherapy treatment can help you achieve smoother, clearer skin. Today, we will explore advanced sclerotherapy treatments to help you regain confidence in your skin – and how Knox Dermatology can help! 

What Are Sclerotherapy Treatments?  

Sclerotherapy treatments are minimally invasive procedures that aim to eliminate spider veins and small varicose veins. We inject a special solution, known as a sclerosant, directly into the affected veins using a very fine needle. This solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and fade over time. The procedure is relatively quick, usually taking less than an hour, and is performed in our comfortable and sterile treatment rooms. This treatment is safe for all ages, effective, and requires no downtime, making it an excellent option for busy individuals seeking results without surgery.  

Who Can Benefit from Sclerotherapy Treatment?  

Sclerotherapy is particularly beneficial for individuals with spider veins – the small, thin veins resembling a spider’s web that appear close to the skin’s surface. Although spider veins are harmless to your health, they can cause self-consciousness, especially in warmer weather and climates where shorts and skirts are frequently worn. Spider and small varicose veins often affect women in their forties and older and worsen over time due to genetics, hormonal changes, pregnancy, or prolonged periods of standing or sitting. Sclerotherapy treatments are ideal for this demographic, effectively reducing the visibility of spider veins and restoring a smoother, more youthful appearance to the skin.  

The Benefits of Sclerotherapy Treatment 

1. Improve Your Appearance: Sclerotherapy treatments effectively reduce the appearance of spider veins and small bulging veins, helping patients achieve a more even skin tone without visible markings.  

2. Minimal Discomfort: Sclerotherapy is a procedure that prioritizes your comfort. Most patients report only mild discomfort or a slight burning sensation at the injection site, making it a relatively painless experience. This is a stark contrast to other vein treatments that can cause pressure, ensuring you feel at ease throughout the process.  

3. Very Quick Recovery: Sclerotherapy treatments do not involve downtime. This allows patients to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. Going back to work, running errands, or going to the gym is no problem! We will provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions during your appointment.  

4. Long-Lasting Results: Sclerotherapy treatments offer a lasting solution. While achieving optimal results may require multiple sessions, sclerotherapy delivers significant and enduring effects. Many patients experience a permanent improvement in the appearance of their veins with just one treatment. This gives you a reason to be hopeful about the future of your skin.

5. Boost Your Confidence: Addressing visible spider veins with sclerotherapy treatments can help you feel more confident in your skin. Your legs will look smoother and more precise than ever, and you can enjoy renewed self-esteem!
