Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose and spider veins. The most common place varicose and spider veins appear is on the legs. Sclerotherapy is performed by collapsing the affected veins through the use of a solvent (generally a salt mixture). Sclerotherapy has been used to treat patients successfully since the 1930’s resulting in effective medical and cosmetic results.

Reasons For Sclerotherapy

Clients generally request assistance removing or reducing their varicose and spider veins when experiencing the following:

  • Pain, aching or burning sensations in the legs or feet
  • Swelling or redness at the vein site
  • Cramping of the legs, especially at night
  • Scaly, dry or discolored skin at and around the site
  • Discomfort after sitting or standing for long periods of time

Individuals troubled by varicose veins may choose to undergo Sclerotherapy either because they find the veins and surrounding area aesthetically unattractive or because the veins in questions are causing uncomfortable and/or dangerous symptoms.

The Sclerotherapy Procedure

During Sclerotherapy, a solution of saline and a sclerosant is injected into the damaged veins. This will cause irritation in the lining of the varicose or spider vein and result in their eventual collapse. When the weakened veins collapse, they will be reabsorbed into the body and other healthier veins will take their place in the circulatory system.

Sclerotherapy is a proven, safe procedure and is performed here at Muse MedSpa, by our Nurse Practitioner. Typically, the Sclerotherapy treatment takes less than an hour, although future injections may be required, depending on the number and size of the veins involved. Patients do not require an anesthetic and usually report little or no discomfort during the procedure, only a mild burning sensation.
