What is Sclerotherapy?
As we get older, our veins may begin to become more visible. Whether you’re suffering from varicose veins that bulge out from the surface of the skin or spider veins that disrupt your even skin tone, Dr. Jennifer Armstrong and her team are available to help. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive vascular treatment that reduces the appearance of spider and varicose veins. This is done with the simple injection of special sclerosing agents that seal off the damaged veins, diminishing their appearance for the long term. While sclerotherapy can be performed alone, Dr. Armstrong may recommend you receive these treatments in conjunction with our laser spider vein treatments with the VBeam laser system. Sclerotherapy will work to seal off the damaged veins causing your discomfort and unwanted appearance, while the VBeam will take action to reduce any lingering hyperpigmentation left behind.
What are the Benefits of Sclerotherapy?
There are many benefits of receiving sclerotherapy with Dr. Jennifer Armstrong, including:
- Minimally invasive cosmetic treatment
- No invasive cutting, scarring, or general anesthesia
- Improves the appearance of varicose veins
- Treats spider veins
- Can be used in conjunction with other vascular treatments
- Little to no downtime and recovery
What Can I Expect During my Sclerotherapy Treatment?
Your sclerotherapy treatments will be performed by Dr. Jennifer Armstrong in our state-of-the-art facility. Dr. Armstrong will begin by assessing the veins in your treatment area. This may require the use of an ultrasound depending on how deep your affected veins are. Dr. Armstrong will then begin injecting her specialized sclerosing agent into the affected veins until they are completely closed off and no longer visible. The sclerotherapy treatment process typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Dr. Armstrong may follow up your sclerotherapy treatment with a VBeam laser spider vein treatment upon request or as a recommendation.
What Can I Expect After my Sclerotherapy Treatment?
Because sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, there is no formal downtime or recovery period associated with treatment. Most patients report returning to their normal daily activities including work immediately following treatment. Patients who receive the VBeam laser spider vein treatment following their sclerotherapy may find that their skin is red, sensitive, and flaky over the following week. This is normal and typically resolves on its own. While you will be able to see some results of your sclerotherapy treatments immediately, ultimate results will become visible once all swelling subsides, about two to three days later. Dr. Armstrong may recommend a series of treatments to achieve your desired results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Sclerotherapy?
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive treatment to get rid of your spider veins and varicose veins, sclerotherapy may be right for you. Ideal candidates for sclerotherapy are in general good health and have realistic expectations of their results. If you’re unsure whether sclerotherapy is right for you, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Armstrong. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
