Telangiectasia, also known as spider veins, may be caused by obesity, genetics, hormonal changes, blood clots, as well as certain medications and medical conditions.

Ideal Candidates for Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a good option for men and women who are bothered by small to medium blood vessels that are visible through their skin. Generally, these spider veins are most visible on the legs, so patients avoid shorts, swimsuits, or other clothing that do not cover their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy must be in good overall health before their procedure to prevent complications or reactions. Patients should not be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
Procedure Technique for Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy will be done in one of our treatment rooms quickly and with no anesthesia. The spider veins being addressed will be marked, and the skin will be cleaned. A fine gauge needle will be inserted into the vein and the solution will be applied. After removing the needle, a bandage will cover the injection site to stop any minor bleeding. This process will be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.
What to Expect from Sclerotherapy
Once you are done with sclerotherapy, you can leave our office to continue all normal activities. You may have some swelling, redness, or bruising in the treated areas, but this will usually fade on its own. Compression garments will be recommended to help your blood circulation after your procedure for faster, better results. It may take some time for the treatment to work, but eventually, the treated spider veins should shrink, become white, and then fade or disappear. You may require two or more sessions to achieve optimal results, but most patients are pleased with the improvements after the first treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions for Sclerotherapy
How much does sclerotherapy cost?
The cost of sclerotherapy will depend on the number of veins being treated, the size of the vein(s), and the number of treatments needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Once we have developed a custom treatment plan, we can estimate your costs.
What's the difference between sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments?
Sclerotherapy utilizes a specialized solution to target veins while a laser vein treatment uses light-based technology. Sclerotherapy is ideal for medium to large veins while laser vein treatments are great for spider veins.
Can I get sclerotherapy on my hands and face?
Sclerotherapy can address spider veins, vascular blemishes, broken blood vessels, and varicose veins on your face and hands. During your initial visit, we will assess your areas of concern and determine whether sclerotherapy can be used safely to treat the vein. If we believe that sclerotherapy is not a good option, we will discuss your alternatives.
How long should I wear compression stockings after sclerotherapy?
Our MedSpa team will talk to you about how long you should wear compression garments after sclerotherapy. The garment is designed to aid in blood circulation so the vein remains closed and to minimize bruising. It's best to wear your garment anytime you are seated for a long period of time.
