What is a Sclerotherapy Treatment? 

Sclerotherapy entails the intravenous administration of a sclerosant medication for the purpose of treating varicose veins and spider veins. This proven method induces a controlled chemical reaction in the vein’s wall, leading to the adhesion of the walls and subsequent closure of the affected vein. Consequently, blood flow is redirected towards healthier veins with intact valves, thereby enhancing overall circulatory function. Sclerotherapy stands as the prevailing and most common technique for aesthetically enhancing leg veins afflicted by varicosities and spider veins, while also providing symptomatic relief encompassing pain, edema, and inflammation.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work? 

Sclerotherapy encompasses a series of small injections into the affected veins. These injections comprise an FDAapproved substance known as a sclerosant, which facilitates vein collapse, impeding blood flow. Subsequently, the spider or varicose veins undergo shrinkage and collapse. The body then absorbs the tissue, resulting in the disappearance of the veins.

Benefits of Sclerotherapy 

Sclerotherapy is an effective procedure for eliminating varicose and spider veins, resulting in healthier and more youthful-looking skin. It offers several additional benefits, including: 

– Rapid and noticeable outcomes 

– Simplicity of the procedure 

– Administration without anesthesia 

– Minimal downtime 

– Negligible discomfort 

– Consistent and predictable results 

– Proven safety and efficacy based on time-tested practices 

– Alleviation of mild pain and itchiness 

Moreover, the outcomes of sclerotherapy are both impressive and permanent. Once the unsightly vein is successfully treated, its recurrence is impossible.

Risks and Side Effects of a Halo Laser Treatment

Sciton’s Halo Laser is minimally invasive and safe. Patients should expect to experience some redness, mild swelling, and tightness after the treatment.

    Before During and After

    What to Expect Before a Sclerotherapy Treatment 

    Prior to spider vein treatment, patients may be instructed to: 

    Refrain from taking certain medications or supplements, including aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), naproxen sodium (Aleve, Anaprox DS), blood thinners, iron supplements, or herbal supplements. These medications and supplements have the potential to increase bleeding risk. A healthcare professional will provide guidance on how and when to discontinue their use before the procedure. 

    What to Expect During a Sclerotherapy Treatment 

    The designated area will be cleansed during the treatment. Next, a sclerosing solution will be injected into the affected veins using a fine needle. Compression will be applied and the area will be massaged to disperse the solution. The injection will irritate the vein, causing it to collapse and fade away. Bright light and magnification may be used for accurate administration of the sclerosing solution. 

    What to Expect After a Sclerotherapy Treatment 

    After treatment, the area may be dressed with compressive tape or an elastic Ace wrap for some time. The treated area often looks bruised initially, with the color gradually fading over a few weeks. Some people may experience brownish discoloration (hyperpigmentation) during the healing process, which also fades over time. You should walk around soon after the procedure while wearing SPF 30 sunscreen if exposed to the sun and avoiding strenuous exercise for two weeks. 

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the common reasons for undergoing Sclerotherapy?

    One of the primary reasons for undergoing Sclerotherapy is typically to enhance the cosmetic appearance of veins. Moreover, the procedure can effectively alleviate symptoms associated with varicose veins, such as aching and swelling. 

    Who is a suitable candidate for Sclerotherapy?

    If you are bothered by spider veins or varicose veins anywhere on your body, you may be an ideal candidate for Sclerotherapy. 

    What types of veins can be treated with Sclerotherapy?

    Sclerotherapy is a therapeutic approach to address the condition of twisted and enlarged veins, commonly known as varicose veins, primarily observed in the lower extremities. Additionally, sclerotherapy is also effective in treating spider veins, which are considered a milder form of varicose veins. This treatment modality is particularly suitable for managing smaller varicose veins. 

    How long does a typical Sclerotherapy session take?

    Treatment typically lasts 30 – 60 minutes and varies based on the extent, type, and area of vein treatment. 

    Is anesthesia required for Sclerotherapy?

    No anesthesia is necessary for sclerotherapy, as it is well-tolerated. 

    What is the recovery period after Sclerotherapy?

    Sclerotherapy in Neenah and Plover is a minimally invasive treatment that imposes minimal disruption to patients’ daily routines. 

    Are there any potential side effects or risks associated with Sclerotherapy?

    While some patients may experience minimal discomfort, it quickly diminishes without causing significant inconvenience. Mild bruising, small skin sores, darkened skin, and a few tiny red blood vessels may occur as side effects. These side effects are typically temporary, resolving within a matter of days to weeks. Rare side effects include inflammation, allergic reactions, and even more uncommonly, blood clots. Following the treatment, comprehensive post-treatment instructions will be provided to optimize effectiveness and minimize the risk of side effects. Typically, patients will observe a gradual reduction and eventual disappearance of the treated veins over a period of 3-6 weeks, although larger veins may require additional time for complete resolution. 

    How many Sclerotherapy sessions are usually needed for optimal results?

    For optimal results, most clients typically undergo two to four treatment sessions, with a spacing of approximately six weeks between each session. However, the number of sclerotherapy sessions required may vary based on factors such as vein size, extent of spider vein spreads, and types of veins involved. 

    Can Sclerotherapy treat large varicose veins, or is it more suitable for spider veins?

    This therapeutic approach is primarily effective for smaller varicose veins. 

    Can Sclerotherapy be performed on pregnant women?

    It is not advisable to get Sclerotherapy while you are pregnant. 

    Does insurance typically cover the cost of Sclerotherapy?

    Sclerotherapy is usually considered cosmetic and not usually covered by insurance. 

    Is Sclerotherapy a permanent solution for varicose and spider veins?

    The outcomes of Sclerotherapy are long-lasting. Once a vein transforms into scar tissue and disappears from view, it is permanently eliminated. This treatment does not act as a preventive measure for the development of additional varicose or spider veins, nor does it increase the likelihood of their occurrence. 

    How soon can patients resume normal activities after Sclerotherapy?

    Most regular activities can typically be resumed immediately after treatment, although it is advisable to avoid strenuous exercise for a duration of two weeks following the procedure. Walking is recommended shortly after the procedure. 

    Are there any dietary or lifestyle changes recommended before or after Sclerotherapy?

    Prior to spider vein treatment, patients may be advised to adhere to the following guidelines: 

    – Refrain from consuming aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements, as these can contribute to increased bleeding. 

    – Cease smoking. 

    – Take specific medications or modify existing medication regime as directed. 

    Post-treatment, it may be recommended to wear compression stockings for a duration of three to six weeks. Additionally, it is advised to avoid activities such as squatting, heavy lifting, and running. Prolonged sitting or standing in a single position for more than one to two hours is discouraged while walking is encouraged. 

    What should I expect during a Sclerotherapy consultation?

    During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and assess whether sclerotherapy is the most suitable approach for your needs. We will carefully examine the veins you wish to treat and evaluate for any indications of more significant venous issues. 

    Furthermore, we will review your medical history, including prior surgeries, existing health conditions, ongoing medications, and nutritional/herbal supplements. Additionally, you will receive detailed pre-surgery instructions and guidance regarding any necessary temporary discontinuation of regular medications before the treatment.
