Reduce Appearance of Veins - Vein Therapy
Sclerotherapy & Yag Laser Treatment
Sclerotherapy (Vein Treatment)Ready to wear shorts with confidence? Sclerotherapy is a great procedure to help you improve the appearance of spider and varicose veins. During this treatment, a special solution is injected into affected veins, causing sclerosis (hardening) of the unwanted vessels. As a result, blood is rerouted through healthy veins, while spider veins are eliminated. A Sclerotherapy certified Registered Nurse performs this procedure.
1Is Sclerotherapy safe?
Sclerotherapy is a proven procedure that has been in use since the 1930s. Sclerotherapy injections must be administered precisely by a trained expert. At Philosophy of Beauty, only an experienced and specially trained Sclerotherapy Registered Nurse performs the procedure.
2Is it painful?
Sclerotherapy injections are done with a tiny needle. Some patients report mild discomfort from the injection and may experience localized cramping for one to two minutes, especially when larger veins are injected.
3When will I see results?
Results begin to show 1 month after treatment; full results may be seen after 2-4 treatment sessions. Follow up visit is usually scheduled for 1 month after the procedure.
4How long do the results last?
Results from Sclerotherapy depend on many variables. Veins that are treated do not reappear. Changes in weight and pregnancy may increase the development of new veins which become visible.
5What happens if I do not continue treatments?
Over time, if new veins develop, treatment may be necessary.
