Though generally unsightly, hair-thin blemishes, known as spider veins, can cause some to want to cover up their legs, even in the heat. Treating spider veins is very important and many seek treatment to relieve discoloration and poor appearance of their legs. For those who want to wear a dress or shorts again without embarrassment, spider vein-free skin is just a phone call away.
Spider Vein Sclerotherapy is considered the gold standard treatment for spider leg veins. The treatment is minimally invasive and can improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning and night cramps. Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take up to two months to see the full results.
The safe, simple procedure is performed in the comfort of our very own office. It does not require anesthesia and usually takes 15 minutes to an hour to complete depending on the extent of the veins. That will all be discussed between you and Dr. DePrince during your consultation. After the procedure, you should not feel differently and may immediately resume normal activities. Many patients schedule their Sclerotherapy treatment during their lunch break and then return to work after leaving our office.
