Benefits of Sclerotherapy
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.
