Do you have unsightly spider veins or vein appearance that isn’t treatable with any store-bought products? Sclerotherapy in Los Angeles is a non-surgical treatment to improve the appearance of spider veins or prominent veins. The procedure may also improve related symptoms of spider veins, including aching, swelling, and burning.
Many patients have protruding veins that may be embarrassing if wearing shorts or their swimsuits. If you are interested in lightening up your spider veins, contact MetroMD today to learn more.
How does Sclerotherapy work?
MetroMD offers a quick solution to get rid of these annoying veins. In a quick, in-office treatment, one of our skilled providers inject these veins with a specialized solution, which makes the veins virtually disappear before the patient’s eyes. This solution causes the area to scar and collapse, which forces blood to reroute through healthier veins in the body. The collapsed vein is then reabsorbed into the body and eventually fades away.
What to Expect with Sclerotherapy
Patients should expect a 15-minute treatment session, but may depend on the size of the treatment area. Although this is a minimally-invasive procedure with injections, sclerotherapy will become more comfortable with the help of a local anesthetic. The number of injections also depends on the number and size of the veins being treated.
Fortunately, there is no downtime associated with sclerotherapy in Hollywood. Dr. Alex Martin will encourage you to move around your legs or treatment areas to prevent the formation of blood clots and lead to optimal results. Most patients see their results immediately, however, the cosmetic concern will improve over a few days to a few weeks.
