Winter is the Perfect Time to Get Rid of Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy is a treatment that eliminates varicose and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution directly into the vein, which causes the vein to scar and collapse. The blood reroutes through healthier veins, and the collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. Sclerotherapy is a good choice for small varicose veins. This therapy is performed in our office on an outpatient basis with the largest and deeper veins being treated first, followed by the smaller veins. Each Sclerotherapy treatment lasts about 20-30 minutes, depending on the severity of the condition. After treatment, veins tend to fade within a few weeks. Some patients may see full results after one month.

For larger blue veins, foam sclerotherapy can provide longer lasting results. Foam sclerotherapy uses an emulsion of the drugs used in conventional sclerotherapy. This method requires less treatment sessions and provides faster results. Foam sclerotherapy is very useful on larger varicose veins for which conventional sclerotherapy may be ineffective. Similar to conventional sclerotherapy, during a foam sclerotherapy treatment, the diseased vein is injected with a solution that promotes vein closure. An emulsion of the same drug used in conventional sclerotherapy, which is created by mixing air with the conventional chemical, resulting in a foam solution. There is virtually no downtime associated with foam sclerotherapy and patients can typically return to their everyday activities immediately. Veins will disappear within a few weeks.

The winter months are a perfect time to begin treatments on your legs! You’ll be ready for the spring and summer and will be free of those pesky blue spider veins you long to get rid of.
