After the spider veins have collapsed, they will begin to clear through natural processes in your body. It is common to receive 3 sclerotherapy treatments for a clearance of 80% or more.
Is Sclerotherapy safe?
As with any medical treatment, ensure you are getting treated with a very experienced injector. Technique and patient selection defines safety. At TLJ Aesthetics MD, no medical complications have ever occurred.
When will I see the effects of Sclerotherapy for my spider veins?
The onset of action is immediate but the veins initially appear more prominent, gradually fading with maximal results seen at about 6-8 weeks. The cosmetic benefits continue to improve over time with a series of several treatments.
How often will I need to repeat Sclerotherapy treatments for ongoing results?
Typically patients who receive a series of treatments for spider veins enjoy a touch up treatment every few years.
Do I need to modify any of my activities after spider vein treatment?
To ensure optimal treatment, it is recommended that our patients wear compression stockings for 5 days and to avoid the following activities for 3 days: heavy exercise, long plane flights or lack of activity, hot baths or saunas.
What is the difference between Sclerotherapy and Light or Laser treatments for spider veins?
At TLJ Aestheics MD, we have found sclerotherapy to be more comfortable and effective than other options. However, there are times that we use a combination of treatments for additive benefits depending upon the size and location of the unwanted spider veins.
