The presence of varicose veins can make those who suffer from them want to hide their legs and will need sclerotherapy to treat these veins. However, new technology has revolutionized spider vein treatment.
Specialist vein doctors can now treat these veins with a minimally invasive technique called vein sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy pain is minimal and the procedure requires little to no recovery time. In fact, vein sclerotherapy is generally considered the gold standard treatment for removing these embarrassing and often painful veins.
How is sclerotherapy done?
Sclerotherapy is performed in a vein specialist’s office and not only minimizes the veins’ unsightly appearance, but can also provide relief from tired, aching, cramping, and restless legs. Additionally, studies have shown this safe, effective treatment can eliminate as many as 50–80% of treated veins after just a few sessions.
Few people experience any complications, although some temporary side effects can occur, including changes in skin pigment at the sites, red areas, or uncommonly a medication allergy. These side effects typically go away within a short period of time, but occasionally take longer to completely disappear.
Although there is a potential for more serious complications such as a deep vein blood clot or inadvertent intra-arterial injection, the incidence is extremely rare. To be assured of the best possible treatment outcome for spider veins, it’s important to find a vein specialist doctor who maintains the highest credentials, treatment modalities, and patient care standards.
