How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Sclerotherapy is an ingenious treatment that works through a combination of medical advancements and your body’s own mechanisms. The treatment itself is quite straightforward and consists of injecting a special solution directly into the problematic veins. In the right amount, this solution causes the vein to scar and collapse.

This might sound worrying at first, but your body naturally reacts by redirecting blood through nearby healthy veins. So there is no interruption to your circulation. Your body then simply absorbs the collapsed vein into the nearby tissue, resulting in the complete disappearance of the treated vein. The end result: clear skin and healthy veins working together for an improved aesthetic. After only a few weeks, you can get rid of varicose veins that have been troubling you for years.

Is Sclerotherapy Right for Me?

If you have either spider or varicose veins that you want gone, then sclerotherapy may be right for you. However, sclerotherapy is best for removing smaller varicose veins before they become too large. That is why we recommend seeking treatment as soon as you begin to notice the appearance of varicose veins anywhere on your body. By treating them when they are smaller, you have a much better chance of seeing the results you want with sclerotherapy. Still, larger veins can also be treated.

To see if you could benefit from this spider vein removal treatment, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lombardi. As an award-winning, double board-certified dermatologist, he has the expertise needed to evaluate your situation and find a way forward.

While varicose veins are typically only a cosmetic concern, they can also cause additional symptoms. These include:

  • Aching
  • Burning
  • Swelling
  • Cramping sensation at night

To ensure safe treatment, Dr. Lombardi will also ask about your medical history. This aims to look for any allergies, vein disease, or other factors that could interfere with safe and effective treatment.

Is There a Recovery Period?

Sclerotherapy takes care of spider veins and varicose veins without any incisions or invasive techniques. Because of this, you can enjoy spider vein removal without waiting around in recovery. Instead, you can get right back to your daily routine, and it is even good for your treatment to be up and walking the same day. However, patients will be asked to wear compression garments on the treated area to improve their results by keeping pressure on treated veins.

We generally recommend patients avoid overly strenuous activities for about two weeks to minimize any chance of risks. For a couple of days after your treatment, it is normal to see some minor bruising or redness at the treated areas, but this is entirely normal. If you have any additional concerns while recovering, contact Synergy MD and we will answer any questions and provide assistance.

When Can I See Results?

Because sclerotherapy works gradually, it is normal to see your results within 3-6 weeks. If you are treating larger varicose veins, it may take some more time for you to see your results, and you might require more than one sclerotherapy session. During your consultation, Dr. Lombardi will provide you with a personalized overview for what you can expect from your tailored treatment. This includes the number of sessions, your expected results, and how long it should take for the target veins to vanish.
