Are you discomforted by how spider veins are affecting your aesthetic? A common cosmetic concern, these vascular lesions can not only compromise your skin’s radiance but may also cause discomfort in the legs. Old Town Medspa now offers sclerotherapy, a renowned approach to spider vein therapy that can help you reclaim lustrous skin but can promote comfortable functionality.
What is sclerotherapy?
One of the most widely known treatments for vascular lesions, sclerotherapy can help remedy the appearance and discomfort caused by troublesome spider veins. Sclerotherapy has been practiced by medical professionals for nearly a hundred years. Utilizing a specialized liquid chemical solution, this formula works to swell and collapse targeted veins. Once broken down, the body is then able to redirect blood flow from the treated veins to nearby healthier ones. Over time, the treated lesions are processed by the body and faded from view.
What can be expected from sclerotherapy?
The duration of your treatment will depend on the number of veins you are addressing. During a sclerotherapy treatment, the targeted area is cleansed where a very fine needle will administer the solution into the spider veins. Depending on your treatment, you may be required to wear a compression stocking or alternative bandaging for a specified period following your appointment.
Is there downtime after sclerotherapy?
No! Patients will not be required to set aside downtime and will be able to return to work and continue normal activities immediately after your appointment.
