Many people develop what is known as spider veins throughout their life. While these veins don’t pose any medical risk or concern, they can become unsightly and bothersome.

The in-office treatment is a fast, safe, and effective method for finally ridding yourself of unsightly veins that can occur anywhere around the body.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is an in-office injection that is used to treat spider and varicose veins. The injection is a specialized solution that is injected directly into the veins being treated, causing these veins to scar and forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins.
The veins treated then collapse and get reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fade away leaving patients with visibly improved skin. While the treatment is often fast and performed within the office, results can take anywhere from days to months, with full results being noticed around the 3-month mark.
FDA-approved and trusted by professionals worldwide, sclerotherapy injections are an easy and convenient treatment option for individuals who suffer from spider veins wherever they may appear. Sclerotherapy while designed specifically for the treatment of spider veins has also been known to help improve other symptoms such as the following.
- Burning sensations
- Night cramps
Common Causes of Spider Veins and Varicose Veins
Spider veins can appear for a variety of reasons, with the largest factor being hereditary, spider veins have been known to appear more frequently due to one or a combination of any of the following reasons.
- Hereditary factors
These veins rise to the surface of the skin when the valves within the veins themselves aren’t working properly. When blood flows through the veins, a flap stops it from flowing backward, allowing a one-way flow.
However, when these flaps or valves stop functioning properly, blood can get trapped within the veins causing the vein to weaken and grow larger. Eventually, the vein or veins will grow large enough that they will appear on the surface of the skin, leaving you with the unsightly spider veins that you see.

The Sclerotherapy Treatment Process
When you’re ready to rid yourself of spider veins, we’ll help guide you through the process of your sclerotherapy treatment. From your initial consultation visit to follow-up sessions and more, we’re here to ensure that you get the results that you want when it comes to treating your spider veins.
At your initial consultation, we’ll go over your treatment options and assess whether or not sclerotherapy is right for you. We go over things such as your medical history, and any previous treatments that you’ve had, and answer any of your questions or concerns regarding the treatment process.
At this consultation, it’s important to let us know if you have been recently ill or have any serious medical conditions. We’ll also inquire about any medications that you are taking as well as allergy information so that we can provide the best service possible for you.
Treatments can be performed in the office and do not require any anesthesia, and they’re typically completed within an hour. You’ll lie comfortably back while we clean and prep your treatment area for injection. Using a fine needle, we’ll insert the solution into the appropriate veins for treatment. Multiple injections may be needed depending on the area and severity of the veins.
You may experience slight stinging or cramping sensations during the process. However, if you are experiencing severe or unbearable pain, be sure to let us know so that we can react appropriately to ensure your comfort and safety.
Most patients can return to their normal daily activities on the same day as their treatment. Minor side effects may be noticed throughout your recovery process and it may be recommended that you wear a compression bandage or compression socks at the site of treatment for about two weeks.
You must avoid any strenuous activities or sun exposure throughout the first few weeks of your recovery. This is to help keep the inflammation of the treated areas as low as possible and avoid any dark spots that may occur.
Common side effects that you may experience during recovery include:
- Raised red areas near the injection site
- Small skin sores
- Dark spots or lines near the treatment area
