Sclerotherapy on spider veins is similar to that performed on large varicose veins. Varicose veins are large vessels and may bulge from the skin. On the contrary, spider veins are small, thin, and more superficial. Spider veins generally show no symptoms and are primarily removed for cosmetic reasons.
Whether the spider veins are branching or linear on the legs or on the face… they can be treated with sclerotherapy. To treat spider veins, a sclerosing liquid or foam is injected into the vein through a hair-thin needle. The foam or the liquid travels through the lumen of the abnormal vein, resulting in irreversible damage to the vein walls. In short, the inside lining of the vein is injured by this chemical irritant. When this happens, the vein collapses and the inside of the vein will seal closed, resulting in a fibrotic scarred vein cord.
Blood that formerly flowed through the vein is rerouted through nearby normal veins. Only the targeted vein is affected, and there is no damage to surrounding tissues. The collapsed vein is gradually resorbed by the body after a few months.
Depending upon the character, presentation, extent, and history of the spider veins, you generally need to have 3-5 sclerotherapy treatment sessions intervaled every six weeks in order to get the very best spider vein resolution. Sclerotherapy is a very well tolerated procedure, done with no anesthesia and minimal discomfort. After the sclerotherapy treatment, you will be encouraged to wear medical grade graduated compression stockings for a week. There will be no downtime, and you will be able to return to work, daily activities, and exercising immediately.
