If would like to get rid of unsightly veins, spider veins, or painful varicose veins; then pursuing sclerotherapy results, through a vein specialist, may be the right choice to help improve your pain, happiness, and your look. In this routine procedure, your vein doctor injects a chemical into the veins which will cause the veins to safely close. Then, over time, your body reabsorbs the vein tissue and you are left with no more visible veins the in area. Sclerotherapy is a safe procedure used to get the skin, tarnished by unsightly veins, back to its original form without compromising blood flow in the area.

Will spider veins or varicose veins treated with sclerotherapy come back?

There is good news and potential bad news regarding sclerotherapy results. The good news is that veins successfully treated will be gone forever. The veins will completely close and disappear into the body. This means there is no chance of them opening back up again and causing unsightly or uncomfortable results. Successful sclerotherapy results are permanent. Unfortunately, the potential bad news is that often unsightly vein conditions are not one-time affairs. People who develop spider or varicose veins often have an underlying hereditary condition, which means more of those unsightly vein areas could appear. While the body constantly changes, new veins can appear on the surface of the skin. It is common for vein issues to affect the same, or other areas in the leg. If this is the case, then sclerotherapy can be used in these areas as well.

Seeking Sclerotherapy Treatment Early

Most people wait several years to treat vein issues, potentially making them require more treatments to get the same great results. As new unsightly or painful veins appear, sclerotherapy performed every six months to one year, allows the patient to address amenable vein issues before they become worse.
