Telangiectasia, also known as spider veins, is usually caused by hormonal changes, obesity, genetics, blood clots, medical conditions, and medications. They appear red, purple, or blue and can become easily visible through the skin while they keep branching out on the face and body. We perform sclerotherapy to reduce or remove visible spider veins on the face or body. A nonsurgical procedure with no downtime for recovery, sclerotherapy may give you more beautiful skin that you can show off. Schedule a complimentary consultation at Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, CT to receive more information about nonsurgical sclerotherapy, plus other cosmetic treatments.
Sclerotherapy treatments are helpful for men and women who don't like the small to medium blood vessels that appear through the skin of their body and face. Typically, spider veins are most prominent on the thighs and lower legs which is why some individuals might avoid wearing swimsuits, shorts, or other types of clothing that do not cover their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy should be in good health before their treatment to avoid complications or reactions. Additionally, the treatment is not good for clients who are pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
Sclerotherapy is completed in one visit and it doesn't take very long. Typically, we can perform the treatment without anesthesia, but if requested, our medical provider is able to apply a topical anesthetic cream to minimize any discomfort. To begin with, the provider will identify the blood vessels that need treatment and prep the skin by cleansing the area being treated. Next, we insert a fine-gauge needle into the vein so we can apply the sclerosing solution. After the needle is empty, we remove it and use gauze to cover the injection site and stop any bleeding. We can repeat the process to treat all of your spider veins.
Your Sclerotherapy Treatment
After sclerotherapy, patients can leave the office to continue their normal routine. You may see mild redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated areas, but this will usually subside on its own. We suggest wearing compression garments to encourage blood circulation after your treatment for better, faster results. It can take some time for the sclerosing solution to show results, but the treated spider veins should shrink, turn a white color, and then fade or disappear. You may need two or more sessions to achieve optimal results, but most patients are pleased with the improvements after their first treatment.

"I had the absolute best experience at Versailles medical spa. After just opening again, they are fully prepared to check for COVID 19 and even offer antibody tests upon arrival. I have not seen more than one other client in the place besides me which made me feel safe. I came for a consult with Marie for microblading, who immediately wowed me with her knowledge and expertise. I also decided to get a facial with Justine, during which I learned I had never had an actual facial until I met her. Today I went back for my microblading appointment and Marie lived up to every expectation and more. She was very purposeful with every action she made. Totally transformed my face. Versailles medical spa is reasonably priced and has every treatment under the sun. So impressed. Can’t stop looking at the menu for what other treatments I can get!"- J.C. / Google / May 27, 2020

"This place has exceeded my expectations. I started off as a client at Versailles getting my laser hair removal done and then decided that I wanted to be part of there staff. I use to work in NYC and after COVID-19 I had to leave the city, so I became one of the Versailles Medical Spa team members. I saw the back end of their work, since I was no longer just a client. The staff truly does care about each and every client, they're very thorough and are always looking for new ways to improve their client's experience. They have mandatory weekly staff meetings to discuss improvements and specials for their clients to enjoy. I am so happy to be part of this amazing team at Versailles Medical Spa and I now know why I went for them to do my treatments."- N.P. / Google / Jun 24, 2020
"I recently did a package of CoolSculpting to treat my stubborn areas that I've been self conscious about for years, and I am so happy I did! From the very first consultation I knew I was in good hands. They were so patient and thorough with answering all of my questions. It's been about 6 weeks and I already see such a difference in my arms and waist. Thank you Versailles Medical Spa for bringing my confidence back!"- C.R. / Google / Jun 22, 2020
