Sclerotherapy — Spider Vein Treatment

 Just Say “No!” to Spider Veins

Houston’s summer heat has arrived and with it shorts season begins. So time to say “bye-bye” to those superficial, colored squiggly lines making an unwanted appearance on your legs with the master of spider vein treatments – sclerotherapy.

Sclerotherapy is a quick, outpatient procedure that zaps visible spider and small varicose veins with a painless injection of sclerosant solution into the veins. The solution, in liquid or foam form, works by irritating the lining of the vein, causing it to swell shut and block blood flow. The injected vein eventually becomes scar tissue and is reabsorbed by the body.


Sclerotherapy — Spider Vein Treatment

Most people think spider veins are just a cosmetic problem – which they partly are – as they cause feelings of self-consciousness and embarrassment. However, the appearance of spider veins most often is a signal that you may be suffering from an underlying, undetected vein disease disorder such as venous reflux. Vein disease is a medical condition that must be dealt with minimally invasive intervention in order to stop its progression.

That said, do not expect to walk into Dr. Hamilton’s office and order “The sclerotherapy treatment, please.”

First, Dr. Hamilton will perform a thorough exam and diagnostic ultrasound to determine the source of your vein problem, the severity of it, and then discuss a treatment plan with you. If your deeper veins are in decent shape, then sclerotherapy is usually the course of treatment.

It usually takes 2-5 visits to completely remedy a spider vein problem, but the results are long-lasting. Treated veins usually don’t reappear, however, vein disease is progressive and is not curable, so new veins may appear in a different area. That’s why it is so important to stay proactive with your treatment and continue with regular follow-up visits after your sclerotherapy treatment.

Varicose and spider veins are treatable at any stage. So even if you get them, you don’t have to live with them!
