Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective, non-invasive procedure that helps eliminate unsightly spider veins so you can feel comfortable in shorts and bathing suits once again. The procedure involves injecting a solution into the vein. The lining of the vein begins to swell and stick together, allowing the blood to clot. Eventually, the vein turns into scar tissue and fades so it is not longer visible
Sclerotherapy is for women and men who want to get rid of unsightly spider veins and varicose veins. The best candidates are typically between the ages of 30 and 60, in good health and not pregnant or nursing. Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics evaluates all patients interested in Sclerotherapy during a pre-treatment consultation. At this time we will discuss your medical history and any current medical conditions or medications. Dr. Janson will also analyze your areas of concern and learn more about your goals and expectations. With this information, we can best determine if Sclerotherapy is the right choice for you.
Immediately after Sclerotherapy, many patients notice that the treated area looks worse before it looks better. Do not let this discourage you. Within six weeks, you will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins. Larger veins may take three to four months to become significantly less visible. Many patients need more than one treatment to realize the most significant improvements. This will be discussed with you at the initial consultation as we work together to develop a safe and effective treatment plan.
Sclerotherapy is an outpatient procedure performed by a licensed medical professional at Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale. Prior to your treatment, we recommend following these guidelines: do not take aspirin, fish oil, vitamin E or ibuprofen in the week before your treatment. If you must be on any of these medications for a health diagnosis or are taking prescription blood thinners, please discuss this with us at your pre-treatment consultation If your legs are being treated, wear loose fitting shorts or a skirt to our office and bring a pair of thigh-high support hose. On the day of your Sclerotherapy appointment, arrive at our office about 15 minutes early.
This allows time for any final paperwork and questions. Once you are comfortable in our treatment room, the physician will review the treatment area and begin your injections. Small amounts of a sclerosing agent are injected deep into the varicose vein. Most people describe the feeling as similar to an ant bite.
After the injection, special dressings and compression stockings are placed over the treated leg. After your appointment, we advise you to take a brisk 15 to 20 minute walk. Then, you can return to work or go home and continue with most normal activities. Plan to leave your compression stockings on around the clock for the first week. Do not shave your legs for three or four days. Walk 20 to 30 minutes a day for the first two weeks, but avoid strenuous exercise for one to two days. Redness, swelling and bruising are all normal and will subside in a short period of time, as you heal.
