If you struggle with the appearance of spider veins, you may often find yourself trying to cover up your skin and avoid wearing certain types of clothing. Spider veins appear as fine dark blue or red lines on the surface of your skin. These spider veins can be treated with Sclerotherapy.
Why Consider Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is an injectable procedure that Dr. Deborah Farrell performs to treat spider veins. Many people choose to undergo sclerotherapy because of the minimal downtime and proven results.
How is Sclerotherapy Performed?
To begin your sclerotherapy procedure, Dr. Deborah Farrell will inject a sclerosing solution into the target veins. This injectable solution is designed to essentially close off the vein, causing it to be safely and naturally absorbed by your body. The procedure itself takes just about 15-30 minutes.
What is the Sclerotherapy Recovery Process Like?
You’ll need to avoid hot baths and hot compresses for about 48 hours after your procedure; however, you should be able to resume your normal routine immediately. During the initial days following your procedure, you will need to avoid unnecessary sun exposure and wear sunscreen when going outside.
Some patients may experience minor pain or discomfort, but this can be easily managed with most over-the-counter pain medications. Speak with Dr. Farrell to learn more about the recovery process and recommendations.
When Will You Notice Sclerotherapy Results?
The results of your sclerotherapy procedure will take some time to appear. Your spider veins should respond to treatment in as little as three weeks. Some injected veins can be removed in a single treatment. Dr. Deborah Farrell may recommend undergoing further sessions to achieve the best possible results.
