Sclerotherapy is a safe, effective, minimally invasive procedure that can greatly diminish the appearance of spider veins on the legs. After treatment, the vessels gradually fade, leaving noticeably clearer, more attractive legs.
You should not have sclerotherapy performed if there is a possibility of you being pregnant.
Expect 50-80% improvement in your varicosities after all treatment sessions have been completed. Some people may see more improvement than others. After the procedure, it may take 6-to-12 weeks to see the full response.
You may need several sessions 6-to-12 weeks apart to get to your desired results. Patients most likely will develop new varicosities off and on in the future, which may require further touching up. Treatment of venous disease is a process as opposed to an event.
