Eliminate Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Our Medical Skin Care Center at Stellis Health offers a simple cosmetic solution to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins.
Sclerotherapy, a cosmetic procedure developed over 75 years ago, involves injecting a sclerosing solution directly into the vein through a tiny needle. The solution replaces the blood in the vein and causes the vein to shrink and eventually disappear over time.
The procedure can also improve symptoms of fatigue, aching pain, and heaviness.

Three benefits of Sclerotherapy:

Eliminate varicose veins

Eliminate spider

Typical Appointment Length:

Treatment can last from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of veins treated. Most patients resume regular activities immediately but avoid excessive standing or vigorous activities for 24 to 48 hours.

When will I see results?

Depending upon the size of the vein, results will vary. After a sclerotherapy treatment, patients notice their smaller spider veins beginning to fade or disappear in about three to four weeks. Larger veins, including varicose veins, may take up to four to six months to fade. Many patients experience between 60% to 80% of the treated vessels becoming resolved. Improvement will be gradual and noticeable.

How long do results last?

Several treatments may be required to achieve the optimum result. In some cases, as few as two or three treatments. During your consultation, you will be advised as to the required number of treatments needed to achieve your desired results.

What are side effects or down time?
Immediately resume regular activity, however, excessive standing or vigorous activities are not advised for 24 to 48 hours. Following treatment, the affected veins may darken and the area may be bruised. Support stocking or snug wrap of the treatment area may be recommended.

Who is a candidate?
During your consultation, a review of your medical history will be used to ascertain the cause and severity of your condition. Depending on the type of problem veins, a combination of different treatment modalities may be suggested.

Is Sclerotherapy a miracle cure?
Neither injection therapy nor anything else will return the skin of the lower extremities to the way it was as a teenager. Certainly, most of the objectionable veins can be obliterated, and the legs can be brought to a point where they will appear acceptable under sheer stockings. Nevertheless, small blemishes inevitably remain that are visible to the naked eye.
