Sclerotherapy In Orlando
Sclerotherapy is a form of treatment that uses an injection to shrink blood vessels and get rid of spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter) and uncomplicated reticular veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) on the legs. Because the procedure is non-surgical and requires only an injection, it is a good option for anyone looking to get rid of spider veins and reticular veins without more invasive surgery. Sclerotherapy in Orlando is used both as an aesthetic treatment and a medical treatment for some issues involving veins and blood vessels.
How does sclerotherapy work?
Sclerotherapy uses a solution called a sclerosant (Asclera), which is injected directly into a vein or lymph vessel. The solution damages the cells lining the inside of blood vessels. This causes blood platelets and cellular debris to attach to the lining of the vessels; eventually, cellular debris and platelets cause the blood vessel to clot. Over time, the clotted vein will be replaced with tissue and subsequently get rid of spider veins.
How long does sclerotherapy last?
Although sclerotherapy has a great success rate, there are no guarantees that it will work for all patients. In general, spider veins respond to sclerotherapy within three to six weeks, and larger veins respond to sclerotherapy within three to four months. If the spider veins respond to the treatment, that vein will not reappear! However, this will not prevent new veins from appearing at the same rate as before.
Who is a good candidate for sclerotherapy?
Most men and women who are experiencing spider veins or small varicose veins are good candidates for injection sclerotherapy treatment. Patients with certain blood conditions or vascular ailments, as well as those taking specific medications may not be suitable candidates. Be sure to discuss any current medical conditions and medications with your specialist before undergoing any vein procedure. In addition, women who are pregnant are not generally considered good candidates for this or other vein sclerosing treatments. Asclera should not be used in patients with known allergies to polidocanol (lauromacrogol 400) or any of the other ingredients of Asclera.
Does sclerotherapy hurt?
Because this procedure is done through an injection, it’s possible that some patients will experience mild discomfort or a burning sensation during the procedure after the solution is injected, but for most patients, the procedure is relatively tolerable.
How many sessions will I need?
In most cases, people require a follow-up session to fully shrink the vein. If there are several varicose veins, you will likely need numerous treatments to shrink or minimize the appearance of all of them.
