Approximately 30% to 60% of all adults have varicose veins or spider veins. Despite the prevalence of spider veins and varicose veins, most individuals don’t seek treatment because they’re not aware of the simplicity of spider vein treatment. The Royal Medspa performs the minimally invasive and safe sclerotherapy procedure to treat spider veins and small varicose veins without major complications or downtime.
What is Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider vein treatment refers to a procedure that removes spider veins and small varicose veins from the skin’s surface. Sclerotherapy is the most effective and painless spider vein treatment available — it involves injecting a specialized medicine into the unwanted spider veins to make them harden and fade away from the skin’s surface. Sclerotherapy spider vein treatment produces dramatic results within a few short weeks.
What does spider vein treatment correct?
Spider vein treatment with sclerotherapy corrects uncomplicated spider veins and small varicose veins. Spider veins are dense clusters of damaged blood vessels that appear on the skin’s surface and are usually less than 1 mm in diameter, and small varicose veins are bulging veins between 1 to 3 mm in diameter. Sclerotherapy can treat both spider veins and reticular veins with a few simple injections.
How does spider vein treatment work?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a specialized medicine into spider veins. We perform sclerotherapy using the FDA-approved Asclera, a prescription medicine with the ideal concentration of polidocanol medicine. The sclerosant medicine fuses the spider veins’ walls, turning them into scar tissues that are eventually absorbed by the body. The accumulated blood reroutes into healthier veins after the treatment.
The benefits of Sclerotherapy:
- Only involves a few simple injections
- Minimal discomfort during the treatment
- Minimal risk of harsh side effects
- Treats spider veins and reticular veins
- Ensures long-lasting results
- No post-treatment complications or downtime
What is the spider vein treatment process?
The spider vein treatment process is painless and simple. The cosmetic provider examines the spider veins and reticular veins on your skin’s surface to curate a personalized treatment plan. After marking the treatment areas, the cosmetic provider may apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The Asclera medicine is carefully injected into the spider veins — one injection per vein. The spider veins turn into hardened scars that eventually fade away.
What happens after the spider vein treatment?
Spider vein treatment involves minimal post-treatment side effects. You may experience mild post-treatment redness, swelling, and discomfort around the treatment sites, but you can resume your daily activities immediately. You have to wear compression stockings for a few days, avoid lifting heavy objects, and avoid swimming or hot showers, but there are no major activity limitations.
When will I see the results of spider vein treatment?
The results of spider vein treatment will gradually appear over several weeks. The spider veins will initially darken and harden because they become scar tissues, but they’ll fade away within three weeks as they are reabsorbed by the body. You can expect optimal results within 3 weeks. Some patients may need 2 to 4 sclerotherapy sessions for optimal results.
