A popular treatment for spider veins andsmall varicose veins, Sclerotherapy uses a chemical formulation designed to irritate the vessel lining of targeted veins. The irritation leads to the closure of the vein, which will then be processed and removed by the body. The injectable sclerant is trusted throughout the industry as an effective treatment for these embarrassing venous problems. The veins appear tangled and discolored, and varicose veins even appear bulging from the skin because of the pooling of blood in these veins. Through sclerotherapy, patients may get rid of these unwanted vascular problems.

 

    Expect Dr. Campos to examine your veins in detail to make sure they are not large varicose veins that may require special attention and another type of treatment. Sclerotherapy is intended for spider veins or small varicose veins, as it may not be effective in treating larger veins. If you are taking certain medications or have diabetes that is not well-controlled, you may not be considered a good candidate for the procedure. What’s more, individuals with skin conditions and women who are pregnant or who are breastfeeding are generally not considered ideal candidates for sclerotherapy, either. If you fall under these categories, it is important to discuss possible alternatives with Dr. Campos.

 

    Your skin will be sterilized where the injections are going to be made. The injections will then proceed, so expect a slight prick and possible a slight burning or stinging feeling as the injection is made. In most cases, anesthesia is not required. More than one injection is usually required depending on the size of the treatment area, but this is something you will work out with Dr. Campos prior to starting the injection process. The treatment takes no more than 30 minutes for most patients, who are then allowed to go back to work and other activities, as no downtime is necessary after Sclerotherapy.

 

    You will be provided a bandage for the treatment area and you may be encouraged to wear compression stockings for a few days. This aids in the healing process and promotes healthy blood flow after the veins are destroyed by the chemical sclerant that is injected. If you feel discomfort following the procedure, talk with Dr. Campos about which over-the-counter pain relievers are both safe and effective. You may notice some swelling, itching, and even some bruising in the treatment area, although these usually go away on their own after a few days and are usually mild.

 

    One treatment session is all that is required to help most individuals get rid of spider veins or small varicose veins, although some may require multiple sessions to get rid of these veins. Any subsequent treatments will be spaced a few weeks apart to give the previous treatment session time to work and so Dr. Campos may evaluate the results. If you are concerned about the necessity of future sessions, bring it up during your consultation.

Dr. Campos is available to answer all of your questions and address your concerns so you fully understand what to expect.
