Sclerotherapy, the gold standard for the cosmetic treatment of unsightly spider and reticular (blue) veins, is offered at Hermann Wellness. Sclerotherapy vein treatments involve injecting the veins with a sclerosing agent that causes the vein to become closed and fade away over time. At our Tampa and St. Petersburg locations, we use Sotradecol (STS) which is FDA approved for sclerotherapy vein treatments. This product works on very fine spider veins and deeper blue veins.
Outdated sclerotherapy treatments in Tampa use hypertonic saline solution for sclerotherapy vein treatments. That solution was very painful and had a greater risk of complications. The newer spider vein sclerotherapy treatment solutions are nearly pain free and more effective. During the sclerotherapy vein injection treatment procedure, ultra-thin needles are used to minimize discomfort. Most people require 3 sclerotherapy vein treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Sessions at our vein treatment center range from 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of veins to be treated. After your sclerotherapy vein injection treatment, we recommend wearing compression stockings for three days to maximize results. *Individual results may vary
