At Azul Medspa, we treat Spider veins. Spider veins are those small blue and purple veins in the skin that have a spider web-like appearance.
The most common method for treating spider veins is by injecting a chemical substance into the veins. The needles used for injection are extremely small and cause little pain. The pain, if any, lasts only a few seconds.* A pressure dressing or graduated support stocking may be applied to the area following injection so that the veins will remain empty of blood. As a result, the walls of the vein will stick together and the vein will not be detected and will no longer be visible.*
Various chemical substances are utilized in the injection treatment of spider veins. Common among these are sodium tetradecyl sulfate, hypertonic saline, and polidocanol.
To adequately treat a spider vein, multiple treatment sessions are usually required. The number of treatments varies based on the severity of the vein problem. During your consultation with our professionals we can prescribe a treatment plan for you. Typically, three treatments are required for each spider vein.* In each treatment session, as many of the spider veins will be treated as time allows. This is done to minimize the number of treatments required. Following treatment, you can go about most of your normal daily activities as desired.*
It should be understood that sclerotherapy is not a miracle cure. Neither injection therapy nor anything else will return the skin of the lower extremities to the way it was as a teenager. Certainly, most of the objectionable veins can be reduced. Nevertheless, small blemishes inevitably may remain that are visible to the naked eye.
Our professionals may also recommend the use of some laser treatment in conjunction with the sclerotherapy. At the time of your consultation options can be explored.
