What is Sclerotherapy?
Spider veins (telangiectasia) are small, damaged veins that usually appear purple, blue, or red and can be visible through the skin while they grow in branching patterns on the face and body. Spider veins most commonly show up on the legs and face, often as a normal part of aging, weight fluctuations, or hormone changes. Spider veins are different from varicose veins in that they are not a medical concern but may still affect your confidence. At Elysium SurgiSpa, our experienced providers offer sclerotherapy to reduce or eliminate spider veins. As a nonsurgical treatment with no required recovery time, sclerotherapy may help you achieve a more even skin tone so you can look and feel your best again.

"I go to Dr Mick for filler and just had an in-office procedure with him under local anesthesia.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy is a quick treatment performed at Elysium SurgiSpa that involves injecting a specialized solution into the veins to target and shrink them. To begin your session, we will clean your skin before a fine needle is injected into the vein so the sclerosing solution can be introduced. After removing the needle, gauze will be put over the site of injection to treat any minor bleeding. After your session, you can get back to your routine, although you may have mild, temporary redness, bruising, or swelling in the treated areas. The use of compression garments can help blood circulation after your sclerotherapy treatment for better, faster results. It can take up to a few months to see your final results, but the treated veins should get smaller, change to a white color, and then disappear or fade. You may need multiple treatments to get the best improvements.
