what is Sclerotherapy?

Spider veins, also called telangiectasia, can be created by genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, medications, blood clots, and medical conditions. They are usually blue, red, or purple and can be visible through the skin while they keep branching out on the face and body. Plastic Surgery Vegas offers sclerotherapy to minimize or eliminate the appearance of spider veins on the face and body. A nonsurgical procedure with no required recovery period, sclerotherapy can give you more radiant-looking skin that you can stop covering up with cosmetics. Schedule a consultation at our office in Las Vegas, NV to get more information about minimally invasive sclerotherapy, as well as other skin treatments.

Ideal Candidates

Sclerotherapy treatments are helpful for men and women who don't like the small to medium-sized blood vessels that are visible through the skin of their body and face. Typically, spider veins are most visible on the legs so they avoid wearing shorts, swimsuits, or any other clothing that reveal their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy need to be in good health before their treatment to prevent complications. Patients should not be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.

sclerotherapy treatment

Sclerotherapy is administered at Plastic Surgery Vegas in one of our private treatment rooms. The blood vessels to be corrected will be determined, and then the skin will be sanitized with alcohol. A fine-gauge needle will be introduced into the vessel so the sclerosing solution can be applied. The needle will be removed, and a bandage will be put over the injection site to stop any minor bleeding. The procedure will be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.

after sclerotherapy

Following sclerotherapy, you will be able to leave our office to resume your daily routine. You may have mild bruising, inflammation, or redness in the areas treated, but this should heal on its own. Compression garments will be suggested to help your blood circulation following your treatment for better, faster results. It may take some time for the sclerotherapy to work, but the treated veins should shrink, change to a white color, and then disappear or fade. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments do I need?
On average, most patients are pleased with the results after one session. However, in many cases, two sclerotherapy treatments are recommended to achieve optimal outcomes. 

How long before veins fade after sclerotherapy?
Generally, it takes about 6 – 8 weeks for spider veins to fade, but this process can take up to six months since sclerotherapy is a chemical reaction. In rare cases, some patients do not respond to sclerotherapy injections. 

What's the difference between sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments?
Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment that uses a specialized formula to target and shrink spider veins. Laser vein treatments utilize advanced light-based technology to coagulate unwanted spider veins. Sclerotherapy is typically better for medium to larger veins, and laser treatments are more ideal for smaller vessels. 

Can I get sclerotherapy on my hands and face?
Yes. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for targeting vascular blemishes, not only on the body but the face and hands. During your consultation, be sure to discuss all of your areas of concern so we can customize your treatment plan to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
