Unsightly spider veins can be effectively and permanently eliminated with sclerotherapy in the comfort of our office. As a sclerotherapy Dallas expert, Dr. Wooming has more than two decades of experience using this proven method to address this common condition.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Spider veins are both unsightly and unnecessary. Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive, FDA-approved treatment for spider and uncomplicated reticular veins. During sclerotherapy, a special “sclerosant” chemical will be injected into each of the affected veins. Though the procedure may involve receiving a number of injections, Dr. Wooming uses a special numbing agent and small needles, so that patients experience very little–if any–discomfort.
Once in the vein, it clears the vein and routes any blood that may pass through it back through healthier veins. The unwanted vein then breaks down and is harmlessly absorbed back into surrounding tissue.
What Should I Expect?
Beyond the cosmetic benefits, this treatment offered by a sclerotherapy Dallas expert also can help reduce symptoms that sometimes are associated with spider veins such as: cramps, discomfort, burning/tingling, swelling.
Treated veins will disappear slowly over the course of a few weeks, and your skin should appear as normal.
