Sclerotherapy Treatment Roswell, GA | Spider Veins and Vericose Vein Treatment
Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure that’s been used since the 1930s to get rid of unsightly spider veins and varicose veins. During sclerotherapy, your provider will gently inject a solution into the affected veins, which causes them to collapse. Over time, the collapsed vein will turn into scar tissue that’s no longer visible.
It’s too hot in Atlanta to wear pants all summer trying to hide varicose or spider veins! Ageless Remedies in Roswell wants you to feel comfortable – and gorgeous – all year round. That’s why we offer in-house sclerotherapy treatment for varicose and spider veins.
What is sclerotherapy?
How long does it take to see results with sclerotherapy?
Once the solution is injected into the vein, spider veins will lose their color and become invisible in about three to six weeks. For larger varicose veins, three to four months is the typical timeframe for complete healing.
Is sclerotherapy painful?
Sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins and varicose veins does not hurt. Patients tend to feel mild discomfort when the needle is inserted, but that’s all. You may experience a little soreness at the injection site after your procedure is finished.
Sclerotherapy side effects
Sclerotherapy side effects include soreness at the injection site that should go away in a day or less. In very rare cases, a blood clot could develop in the treated vein. If you have a blood-clotting disorder, tell your provider before treatment.
Once your sclerotherapy treatment is finished, you can go on about your day as normal. We may ask you to wear compression stockings for several hours after your treatment. We also ask our patients to avoid certain things for the first 48 hours after sclerotherapy injections, including:
- Hot baths
- Anti-inflammatory medicines other than acetaminophen
- Tanning and tanning beds
