Sclerotherapy vein treatment should not be painful and if done correctly and should be permanent.1 In some people with strong family histories of vein problems, new veins may appear in the future. The initial course of vein treatments may take 3 – 5 sessions, depending upon how your particular veins respond. This is variable. People will often come back in the future for “touch up” vein treatments. Treatments are usually 3-5 weeks apart.
The most important consideration in the treatment of spider veins is to make sure these tiny surface veins are not being supplied by larger “feeder” veins (reticular veins) from below.
Treatment of spider veins is by either sclerotherapy (injection), laser or a combination of both.
Aurora Medical Spa uses Asclera for vein injections which is FDA approved and has minimal complications. Other solutions such as concentrated “saline” have more side effects and are generally more painful.
Sclerotherapy sessions address specific areas and are based upon SAFE amounts of sclerosing solutions depending upon size and/or number of veins treated or strength of solution used.2
After treatments veins may have cotton dressings over areas injected.
Medical grade compression stocking are worn for 72 hours. This ensures that the solutions stays in contact with the vein wall and isn’t “flushed” out by your circulation.
