Sclerotherapy offers an effective, non-surgical approach for the treatment of spider veins and some varicose veins. This is performed for our Puyallup and Seattle patients using an FDA-approved solution delivered via a series of injections to eliminate unwanted vessels. A consultation will allow us to determine whether sclerotherapy is the best treatment option for your problem area(s).
How is Sclerotherapy administered?
Sclerotherapy Is a cosmetic procedure performed by injecting a solution directly into the vein which causes it to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
After the injection, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks. Occasionally it may take a month or more to see the full results. In some instances, several Sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.
Sclerotherapy is suitable for all skin types, including darker-skinned patients and anyone looking for visible relief from spider veins.
This process effectively treats:
Cosmetic improvement is noticed within a few weeks of treatment.
Most cases require a series of sessions scheduled a few weeks apart.
You can resume normal activities immediately following treatment.
