Treatment for Spider and Reticular Veins
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein that causes it to scar and collapse, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The vollapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
Causes of Spider & Reticular Veins
A number of factors predispose a person. These include:
Why Choose Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is considered the treatment of choice for spider leg veins. The treatment is minimally invasive. The procedure also can improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning and night cramps. Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take up to two months to see full results. In some instances, several treatments may be needed.
What you should Know About Sclerotherapy
As with any treatment, there are risks associated with it, though they are minimized in the hands of our board certified doctor.
More severe complications rarely occur, including inflammation, blood clot, allergic reaction to treatment solutions and side effects caused by tiny air bubbles in the blood stream incuding nausea, headaches, coughing and visual disturbances.
The average cost for sclerotherapy varies by the size and number of veins treated. Spider and reticular treatment, whether with sclerotherapy or vascular laser is considered cosmetic in nature and the cost regardless of the technique used, is not covered by insurance plans.
How to Prepare for the Procedure
Before the procedure, the doctor will review your medical history and conduct a physical exam. Be sure to let the doctor know about any prescription or over-the-counter medicine you are taking as well as any supplements.
