Sclerotherapy – Spider Vein Treatment – Gainesville (Braselton), GA

Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Getting rid of spider veins on the legs can be easier than you expected thanks to sclerotherapy. The treatment uses a sclerosing solution injected into the unwanted vein by the board-certified plastic surgeons or physician assistants at the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville and Braselton, GA. Once the chemical solution is in the vein, the vein will immediately begin to shrink in size. Over a course of time, the body will absorb the vein naturally, leaving the leg looking clearer and better than ever. The best part of the treatment is it’s quick (around 10 minutes) and there’s no downtime, so you can get back to your life as soon as possible.

Procedure Technique

Sclerotherapy treats veins by injecting a sclerosing solution directly into the vein. The solution causes permanent damage to the vein, causing it to collapse and absorb into the body. Sclerotherapy is a procedure that will be tweaked for every individual based on the number, size, and location of the veins that are being treated. In most cases, there is usually one injection for every inch of spider vein. As each injection takes place, the surgeon will place light pressure on the injection site with a cotton ball and ointment.

During/After Procedure

Sclerotherapy is performed in an accredited surgical facility. During the procedure, patients will be given a local anesthetic in areas to diminish discomfort, although the patient should only feel a few small pricks. Recovery following vein treatment through sclerotherapy does not require any downtime or absence from the workplace. Most individuals can resume normal activities within 24 hours, and will wear a compression stocking for a few days while the legs heal. Patients will begin to see their veins fading within 2 to 3 weeks, with maximum results being revealed around 6 weeks after the treatment.

Sclerotherapy FAQs

How Well Does It Work?

Sclerotherapy can improve the appearance of the legs by 70%, but it will not target every single vein. Additional treatments may be necessary for optimal results. Although many patients are very satisfied with the results from sclerotherapy, check with our team to clarify anticipated results and to see if the treatment is the right fit for you.

How About Other Treatments?

While Sclerotherapy is a popular and effective method to remove unattractive veins from the legs, it is not the only choice of treatment that men and women have to choose from. As an alternative, we offer laser treatment. Consult our team to discover the optimal solution for your specific case.

Negative Side Effects?

There may be some skin irritation, slight itching, and some skin discoloration after treatment, but this is usually evident at the injection site and will subside in a few days. This procedure is non-invasive, and complications are very rare.

Time Between Treatments?

It is best to plan your treatments a couple of months apart. This gives the skin ample time to heal, as well as time or the treated veins to completely disintegrate.
