Leg Spider Vein Removal (Sclerotherapy)

Sclerotherapy for Leg Spider Veins

What are spider veins?

Unsightly spider veins afflict up to 40% of all women.  They are commonly seen in pregnant women, and are more frequent in women than in men.   Spider veins are small varicose veins near the surface of the skin that become enlarged.  They become enlarged with blood that pools in the tiny vessels.  Many people find spider veins to be unsightly and uncomfortable.  In fact, our doctors often hear reports that their patients become more confident in their appearance following treatment.  Patients also report that they have less discomfort after sclerotherapy.

Before & After

  • Procedure Leg Spider Vein Removal

What is Sclerotherapy?

Our doctors use sclerotherapy to successfully eliminate most spider veins. This method of treatment involves injecting problem spider veins with a sclerosing solution.  The solution causes the spider veins to seal-off from other leg veins.  A few weeks after treatment, spider veins are absorbed by the body.  You get the benefits of legs that look and feel better!

Are compression hose necessary after treatment?

Yes, compression tights reduce swelling and help to resolve the treated areas.  They are worn for three days following treatment.

Is treatment uncomfortable?

The doctors use tiny cosmetic needles to inject the glycerine and lidocaine solution.  Lidocaine reduces discomfort.  Most patients tolerate the treatment quite well, and most report that they love the results!

Can I resume normal activities following treatment?

Yes, our doctors encourage patients to do lots of walking after treatment.  It might be best to avoid strenuous training the first day following sclerotherapy.

Love yourself. Inside and out.
