Sclerotherapy is the method for eliminating telangiectasias or spider veins by the injection of a sclerosing agent into superficial veins. Our Nurse Practitioner will perform a thorough assessment of the area at your initial consultation to ensure that you are an appropriate candidate. It is recommended that you bring shorts to your appointments so that your legs can be easily accessed. Each sclerotherapy session lasts approximately 20 minutes. The total number of treatments required will vary depending upon the amount and severity of the veins, but an average of 3-5 treatments are necessary. Compression stockings are recommended for 5 days following the procedure to produce best results.
