Have you started to notice small, visible blood vessels on the surface of your skin? Known as spider veins or thread veins, these damaged blood vessels are common and usually don’t indicate an underlying medical problem. However, they can compromise your appearance.
Thankfully, we have sclerotherapy to eliminate spider veins quickly, comfortably, and effectively. Read on to learn about the remarkable benefits of sclerotherapy in Tampa and St. Petersburg.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy involves injecting the visible veins with a sclerosing agent, which causes the vein lining to swell and seal itself shut. This cuts off blood flow to the vein, making it fade away within a couple of weeks.
At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness, we use a hypertonic saline solution, one of the most effective and widely used solutions for sclerotherapy. We inject the solution using ultra-thin needles to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. The treatment process typically takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how many veins are being treated.
Most people achieve their desired results from sclerotherapy after three treatment sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.
What Are The Benefits of Sclerotherapy?
Safely Fade Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy can safely remove spider veins on your face, hands, legs, and various other areas of the body, restoring the appearance of clear, healthy skin.
Sclerotherapy is a highly precise treatment, allowing us to direct the sclerosing agent to small, deep-set veins.
Sclerotherapy is minimally invasive and uses ultra-thin needles, making it a safe procedure for many patients. It usually doesn’t require downtime, so you can return to work and other non-strenuous activities immediately.
Few to No Side Effects
Side effects from sclerotherapy are usually minimal, if they occur at all, and may include itching and redness at the injection site.
