Sclerotherapy Birmingham

What is sclerotherapy?

Erase Spider Veins With Injections

Sclerotherapy is an outpatient procedure that treats spider veins through the injection of a special solution that causes the damaged veins to shrink and close off blood flow in those areas. Your body does the rest of the work by redirecting the blood flow into healthy veins and absorbing these into the body like scar tissue.

What are the benefits of sclerotherapy?

Clearer, Younger-Looking Skin

Sclerotherapy can be used to treat any venous insufficiency, but it is generally better suited for smaller vessels like spider veins.

While many other treatments require some form of sedation or anesthesia, sclerotherapy does not. The procedure itself also tends to be quicker than other treatment options.

Ideal for Spider-Vein Sufferers

If you suffer from smaller veins causing cosmetic issues, sclerotherapy might be the solution for you. There are many different ways to treat venous insufficiencies, so consult your doctor about which treatment will best address your concerns.

Your Sclerotherapy Procedure

Quick and Minimally-Invasive

The procedure usually requires no anesthetic and only takes 30 to 60 minutes on average. The doctor will administer a series of shots using a thin needle and then have you walk around a little bit afterward to prevent any blood clotting. Following Sclerotherapy Birmingham patients can go back to resuming their normal daily activities.

Sclerotherapy Recovery

A Smooth Road to Better Skin

Birmingham Sclerotherapy patients will be able to return to most normal activities the day after your procedure. For up to two weeks, you should avoid heavy exercise and hot baths. You will wear compression socks to support your recovery and may also need to change any bandages applied to the treatment site.

Sclerotherapy Results

Spider Veins Vanish

It can take about three weeks to heal from post-procedure bruising and up to six weeks for your body to heal completely. For most people, your spider veins will disappear. Some Birmingham Sclerotherapy patients require a second visit if the veins in the treated area are on the larger side. Follow your care plan before and after the procedure for the best possible results.
