Sclerotherapy

Haverhill St Andover MA

Introduction

Unsightly varicose veins also known as spider veins may suddenly appear on your body. We at The Delicate Spa understand how these protruding veins could be unappealing and with this in mind, have come up with a minimally non-invasive solution – Sclerotherapy. Beyond treating varicose veins, we want to give you a healthy look and glow from head to toe.

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally non-invasive procedure that involves injecting a solution directly into the affected veins. The solution will cause the veins to scar and close, and redirect the blood to circulate to other healthier veins. This reduces the obvious appearance of varicose or spider veins on the legs, thighs, calves, ankles, or feet.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Once the sclerosing solution is introduced into the vein through a very thin needle, it will shrink the vessels, make them expand, stick together, and form a scar. By closing off the vein, the targeted area of the body looks healthier.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does sclerotherapy take?

This treatment takes between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the number of veins being treated.

Is sclerotherapy painful?

Sclerotherapy is generally not painful but can cause minor discomfort during the injection of the solution. Expect a bit of a cramping sensation for a few minutes when the larger veins are injected with the solution as well.

Can sclerotherapy treat all types of veins?

Most people with varicose veins are recommended for treatment. However, it is important to consult with our team of clinic specialists at The Delicate Rose, if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

What are the potential side effects of sclerotherapy?

While generally a safe procedure, some side effects to watch out for would be bruising, swelling, and discoloration at the injection site. Depending from person to person, these will subside within a few days or weeks.

When will I see the results of the sclerotherapy?

Generally, you may see improvements within 6 to 4 weeks after treatment. Note that the veins will appear darker or more noticeable after treatment, and eventually disappear. Our experts at The Delicate Rose will be with you from treatment to maintenance, to ensure that you have achieved a no-more-varicose-veins look.
