Vein Treatment

What is Vein Treatment?

Are you bothered by enlarged veins known as varicose veins or small, dilated blood vessels that are visible through the skin? If so, you may be able to benefit from vein treatment at North Valley Cosmetic Surgery. Vein treatment, also called sclerotherapy, is a procedure to eliminate varicose and spider veins for a boost in confidence.

Vein treatment offers the following benefits:

  • Reduction of spider veins.
  • Reduction of varicose veins.
  • Results without surgery.
  • Short recovery period.
  • Minimal side effects.

Candidates for Vein Treatment

Healthy individuals who are self-conscious of or bothered by their veins and are looking for a non-surgical solution can often benefit from this vein treatment. Individuals will not be good eligible for this treatment if they are pregnant or breastfeeding. In order to determine if you are eligible for sclerotherapy, a consultation is needed at our Scottsdale, AZ office.

The Procedure

Prior to your vein treatment, you will be asked to avoid certain medications such as the antibiotics Tetracycline and Minocin, anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, and the steroid Prednisone.

To begin this, your skin will be cleansed, and a special solution is injected directly into the vein. This causes the lining of the blood vessel to swell and stick together, cutting off the blood flow. With time, the vessel turns to scar tissue and fades from view. The number of veins treated in one session will depend on the location and size of the veins, as well as your overall medical condition. Treatment takes 30-45 minutes to complete.

After sclerotherapy, you will be able to drive yourself home and you may resume your regular activities. You will need to wear special support hosiery or compressions to reduce swelling and compress the treated blood vessels. Be sure to avoid hot baths and saunas, and do not apply any form of heat to the injected areas. Our team will provide you with instructions regarding how to care for your treated veins for the best results.
