Benefits of Sclerotherapy

Is Sclerotherapy Right for Me?
If you have spider veins or varicose veins that make you self-conscious, sclerotherapy may be right for you. It is very effective at diminishing or even eliminating the veins from the surface of the legs. Pregnant women often get spider or varicose veins late in their pregnancy or afterwards but must wait until after childbirth to treat them.
How Involved is Sclerotherapy?
The procedure does not take more than hour to complete. It involves using a laser that is moved across the veins. The veins heat up, causing the blood to clot and seal themselves off from further blood flow. When this happens, the veins collapse and disappear. Sclerotherapy lasers can treat the affected area without damaging the surrounding tissue. The veins may take a few weeks to disappear. Additionally, the other veins are not harmed with the laser, and the blood is rerouted through these veins.
What is the Recovery from Sclerotherapy Like?
There is no recovery following sclerotherapy. Walking is very important with a few exceptions, including no strenuous exercise, hot tubs or direct exposure to the sun for the first few days. The full results are visible within in a few weeks.
Most patients require three to four treatments to get the full results of sclerotherapy; however, it depends on the extent of the veins at the surface of the skin.
How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?
The cost of sclerotherapy depends on the extent of the vein coverage and how many treatments it takes to achieve the eradication or diminishing of the veins. Dr. Man discusses the cost of the treatments after he evaluates the areas to see how extensive the issue is. He also goes over the available payment options, including cash, checks and credit cards as well as financing.
What Do I Do Next?
