Sclerotherapy

Industry-Leading Spider Vein Removal Treatment

Leg Vein Treatment

Spider Vein Removal in New Braunfels, Texas

This method of vein treatment is for very small superficial veins in the skin called Telangiectasias or “Spider Veins” and the next larger size veins called Reticular Veins.  Sclerotherapy is the injection of a chemical solution (sclerosant) into the vein that damages the treated vein, causing the vessel to contract and to scar closed permanently. This treatment is more efficient and quicker than laser treatment of Spider Veins.

About Spider Veins

They may not be bulging or painful, but spider veins are rarely a welcome sight. Everyone has them. Spider veins are usually red, purple, or blue in color and are more cosmetic concern than painful nuisance.

What it Treats

  • Spider veins or Telangiectasias
  • Reticular Veins
  • Located on the legs and other areas

Procedure Time

30 to 60 minutes

 

Recovery Time & Side Effects

Minimal.  No pain.  Slight bruising is possible but not often seen.  The complications of skin damage does not occur with Polidocanol.  To complete the treatment, compression stockings must be worn for one week.

The Sclerotherapy Treatment Process

Step 1

The Consultation

Before your treatment, you will be scheduled with our staff for a free vein screening. At this time, your veins will be assessed and a treatment plan formulated.

Step 2

The Treatment

The area to be treated will be cleaned and prepped. With the tiniest available needle, the painless sclerosant (we use Polidocanol) is injected sequentially into the spider veins, causing blanching of the vein. A cotton ball and pressure will be applied at injection site as needed.

Step 3

Post Procedure

After completion of the procedure, compression stockings will be used continuously for 3-7 days. The more they are worn, the better the results.

Results

Immediately, the vein may become red and more prominent. This doesn’t last long, as the inflammatory process resolves fairly quickly. Very good results are usually seen at 4 weeks, with continued improvement over the next 3 months. Repeat sessions may be necessary to reach the desired outcome.
