Unpleasant to the eye, spider veins are a sign of malfunctioning veins that appear most commonly on the legs. A thin constellation of vein clusters can appear blu-ish or red-ish and show underneath the skin, creating marks similar to a spider web. At Rejuve Med Spa, we offer spider vein treatment to our patients in the form of Sclerotherapy.
If you are considering undergoing treatment to remove spider veins, you will likely need to know how much to budget for sclerotherapy. Our expert injection specialists are trained to treat malfunctioning veins on the legs, but also other areas of the body. However, we warn all our patients that spider veins can be a sign of an underlying vascular disease, which may require a medical consultation with your physician too.
Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Spider veins are easy to recognize. They are tiny web-like constellations of veins 1mm thick or less that become visible underneath the skin. Our Rejuve Med Spa’s FDA-approved spider vein treatment consists of the injection of a sclerosing agent. The injection will help seal the vein, forcing the body to redirect the blood flow to neighboring, healthy veins. The objective is to eliminate the spider vein effect and to contribute to healthy blood flow.
We are adamant that sclerotherapy needs to be performed by a qualified and certified injection specialist. The therapy requires the use of tiny needles into the thin lining of the vein. That is why our Rejuve team is trained to meet the high standards of aesthetic injection therapies.
Average Sclerotherapy Costs
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons records an average cost for spider vein treatment of $343. However, it is crucial to understand that other factors will affect your sclerotherapy fees. Indeed, depending on the size and position of the spider veins on your body, you may require additional treatments and anesthesia. You may need to wear a post-treatment garment during recovery, which can be included in your fees.
At Rejuve Med Spa, we appreciate that health insurance plans may or may not cover spider vein treatments. We work closely with you to determine the cost of your treatment and accommodate your needs.
Spider veins are typically harmless. However, they can contribute to creating varicose veins, which can affect wound healing and cause clotting. Their removal through sclerotherapy can help reduce risk and avoid health complications. Varicose veins can also be a source of pain and discomfort, which successful sclerotherapy eliminates effectively.
We also find that our patients can feel embarrassed by the visible web pattern on their skin. Sclerotherapy can help men and women feel more confident by improving the appearance of their veins.
Am I a Candidate for Sclerotherapy?
We always warn our patients that spider vein treatment doesn’t prevent future spider veins from reappearing elsewhere. As a result, our specialists consider your medical history and the risk for vascular disease as part of the process. A good candidate for sclerotherapy is typically between 30 and 60 and doesn’t present any vascular risk.
We don’t recommend a spider vein treatment for pregnant or breastfeeding women and individuals who can’t follow the post-treatment instructions.
