Beautiful and Attractive Legs with Simple In-Office Treatment
If you’re tired of covering up your legs because you’re embarrassed about spider veins or you avoid wearing shorts and dresses in the desert heat because of the heaviness and burning from unhealthy veins, we can help. We offer sclerotherapy injections for spider veins and varicose veins to collapse the unsightly veins quickly.
Sclerotherapy can be an effective way to treat superficial veins that are causing cosmetic issues or pain and discomfort.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
This procedure takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes depending on the number of veins treated. Dr. Grewal will insert a tiny needle into the problem vein to deliver the sclerosant solution into the vein. The vein closes up and blood is rerouted to healthier veins. As the treated vein walls collapse, they are dissolved by the body.
You will need to wear compression stockings or bandages for a few weeks after the procedure. We encourage light activity and walking to prevent clotting and to avoid strenuous exercise or sun exposure for a couple of weeks after treatment. You will notice results within 3 to 6 weeks of treatment.
Benefits of Sclerotherapy
Most patients see a significant improvement in the appearance of their legs with sclerotherapy treatment. This treatment can be especially helpful for relieving symptoms such as:
- Reduce swelling of the legs and ankles
- Minimize burning sensations
- Reduce leg achiness and fatigue
- Stop night cramps
- Reduce discomfort in the legs
After Sclerotherapy Treatment
We advise patients to avoid sun exposure, hot baths, hot compresses, whirlpools, and the sauna after their injections to keep inflammation under control. The tissues need to heal naturally and you will want to avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen for at least 48 hours after treatment.
