Are you unhappy with visible superficial veins within your complexion? Are small varicose or spider veins becoming more than a cosmetic issue for you? Many patients experience some form of superficial vein disorder. At Coastal Vein Care in Newport Beach, our goal is to provide our patients with first-class care and personalized treatments for treating vein conditions and improving overall wellness. Sclerotherapy is one of our minimally-invasive procedures for diminishing unwanted spider or varicose veins.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to diminish spider veins and small superficial veins to relieve uncomfortable symptoms and appearance. Sclerotherapy utilizes a specialized medical solution delivered directly to the targeted vein. The solution is injected into the veins using a fine needle. Once delivered, the medical solution irritates the inner lining of the vein. This eventually causes the vein to collapse. The pooled blood that was once in the diseased vein then redirects into surrounding healthy and normal functioning veins. Overtime, the collapsed veins turn into scar tissue, fade from view, and are naturally removed from the body. Sclerotherapy is most popularly used to treat small visible veins in areas of the legs, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of small veins in other various parts of the body.
Sclerotherapy offers a range of benefits including:
- Alleviate uncomfortable symptoms
- Diminish the appearance of diseased veins
- Quick treatment times
- Minimal recovery time
What to Expect
An initial consultation and analysis is first required in order to create a plan for treatment that is tailored to each patients’ needs. There is no anesthesia required during sclerotherapy
During the procedure, a very fine needle is used to gently deliver a specialized solution directly into the targeted veins. The solution is effective at irritating the vein walls and eventually causing it to collapse. There is minimal discomfort associated with this process.
In the time following treatment as the problem vein is naturally removed from the body, you can notice improvements for a clearer, vein-free complexion.
Following treatment, it is very important to wear compression stockings while the sclerosing agent is settling in. If the compression stockings are not worn it will affect the success of the treatment.
