Sclerotherapy offers Little Rock area patients with painful and unsightly varicose and spider veins a successful and minimally painful treatment option. Sclerotherapy treatments are preferred even over laser surgery for the removal of leg veins, including spider veins.
How Do Spider Veins Disappear?
Sclerotherapy is the injection of chemical agents into the vein in order to cause the vein to disappear over time. For sclerotherapy to work an irreversible injury to the blood vessel must occur which induces clotting of the vessel and activates the body’s inflammatory response that over time results in the eventual removal of the blood vessel, the spider vein, and its disappearance.
What Can I Expect?
The sclerotherapy agents used at Nirvana Med Spa to treat spider veins are safe and cause little if any discomfort. All are gentle to the skin, have low allergic potential, and are non-toxic in the concentrations and dosages used.
While the outcome of sclerotheapy all depends on the agent used and the skill and experience of the individual performing the treatment, results will vary from patient to patient.
What Is The Result?
Most spider veins begin to fade within 2 to 3 weeks, and most are totally gone by 4 to 6 weeks. Larger veins or ones of the foot or ankle may take considerably longer, up to 2 to 3 months or so, to resolve.
The clots within the spider vein do not migrate, therefore are of no health concern or consequence. The time to complete removal of the spider vein and clots is variable.
