Sclerotherapy for vericose and spider veins
Aesthetic Solutions can visibly reduce varicose and spider veins using Sclerotherapy. Candidates for this treatment with benign varicose and spider veins are injected with a sclerosing solution which irritates the lining of the vein and collapsing it which causes the blood to clot. After a period of time the vein will become less visible after it has been absorbed by the body.
Sclerotherapy has been a proven approach for reducing vessels in the legs since the 1930s. Sclerotherapy can be done over the lunch hour as it takes 15 to 45 minutes for treatment and you’ll be able to return to work or normal activities afterwards.
Varicose and Spider Veins
This treatment is for people who have small or large varicose veins or a number of tiny spider veins. Sclerotherapy can be an alternative treatment for individuals who’s veins do not respond well to laser vein treatment.
After treatment patients will no longer feel the aching, burning, swelling and pain associated with varicose and spider veins. Besides the legs being enhanced cosmetically there is also improved blood circulation after the vessels have disappeared.
We're happy to answer any questions regarding Sclerotherapy. To book a complimentary consultation or to see if you're a candidate for this treatment call us at (403) 346-3376.
During the treatment injections are delivered by a small needle and may cause a mild to moderate burning sensation which should last only a few seconds. We can successfully treat most patients during a single visit although it may require multiple sessions to eliminate large targeted areas. Once injected the veins will disappear and won’t require treatment again although this won’t prevent the occurrence of new varicose or spider veins in the future.
This is an outpatient procedure which will allow you to return to your normal activities with the understanding that physical activity such as running or exercises designed for legs be avoided for a few weeks afterwards.
