      What is Sclerotherapy?

      Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of spider and varicose leg veins.


      What Causes Varicose and Spider Veins and How Can Cosmetic Sclerotherapy Help?

      Varicose veins occur when weak or damaged vein walls and valves cause blood to pool, in turn causing them to bulge. Spider veins are smaller but still-visible versions of varicose veins.

      During your Sclerotherapy procedure, you will recline while Meredith injects tiny doses of solution into the spider veins. This injected solution:

      • irritates and swells the bulging vein wall
      • closes the vein together
      • clots the blood in the vein
      • turns the vein into scar tissue that eventually fades away

      Most patients will require at least 2 treatments scheduled 4 weeks apart.


      Your Sclerotherapy Procedure

      Meredith will work with you to determine what supplements and medications to avoid prior to treatment to reduce your risk of bruising.

      Before your first appointment, please:

      • avoid tanning lotions for 2-3 weeks
      • shave your legs
      • avoid putting oils and lotions on your legs

      Please wear shorts on the day of your appointment.

      Sclerotherapy does not require anesthesia, and you may experience temporary pinching, tingling, stinging, or burning during the injection. You will likely be out of the New Life Aesthetics office in less than an hour.

      Your skin may be irritated after the treatment, and bruising is common. Both will fade away, and you’ll receive a dose-pack of Arnica to help.

      Contact New Life Aesthetics if you have questions or are experiencing more serious side effects like local redness, inflammation, pain, infection, or under-the-skin blood clots.


      Who is a Good Candidate for Sclerotherapy?

      You are a good candidate for Sclerotherapy if your veins are affecting your self-confidence, encouraging you to cover your legs in fear of how they look.

      New Life Aesthetics experts will review your medical history to determine if Sclerotherapy is the right treatment for you.


      Does Sclerotherapy Work?

      The success rate for Sclerotherapy is high, with about 80% of treated veins disappearing.

      Results may occur in about three to six weeks, though larger veins may take about three to four months to fade.

      After your Sclerotherapy:

      • move your legs by walking for 15-20 minutes immediately after your treatment to prevent blood clots
      • avoid hot water for 48 hours
      • avoid anti-inflammatory drugs for 48 hours
      • compress the veins by wearing compression stockings for at least 72 hours
      • avoid long airplane rides for 3-7 days
      • avoid heavy cardio and weight training exercise for 3-7 days
      • avoid hot bath/saunas for 3-7 days
      • avoid sunlight for 2-4 weeks to prevent dark spots from forming as a result

      Meredith will discuss your aftercare with you in detail.

      Schedule a follow-up appointment 3 weeks after your treatment. Bring your compression hosiery and shorts to this and every follow-up appointment.
