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.

"Just finished my microblading-----looks very natural and color is perfect. It is amazing how everything changes "shape" as you get older (and of course that over plucking didn't help) and who wants to use an eyebrow pencil----not me! Great work and would recommend for anyone who wants natural looking eyebrows."- A.R. / Google / Feb 05, 2020

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 so patients 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 of our treatment rooms, and it doesn't take very long. Typically, we can perform the treatment without anesthesia. To begin with, one of our team members will identify the blood vessels that need treatment and sanitize the skin. 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.
