Sclerotherapy in Chevy Chase, Maryland
Have you noticed leg veins popping up seemingly out of nowhere? Whether they are spider veins or varicose veins, they often look more troublesome than they are and are typically only a cosmetic concern. If you want to say goodbye to spider and varicose veins, sclerotherapy from a qualified practitioner can help you reclaim smooth, beautiful skin.
Why Choose Sclerotherapy?
Non-surgical sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for unsightly veins that has been used for nearly 100 years. It’s less painful than other vein removal methods such as laser treatment, and sclerotherapy often offers better results. No anesthesia is required, and since it doesn’t require surgery, there is no risk of scarring.
What Does Sclerotherapy Feel Like?
You may notice some discomfort such as stinging or cramping with sclerotherapy, but no more painful than a pinprick. This is temporary and lasts about one to two minutes. Bruising after treatment is normal and will go away quickly.
When Will I See Sclerotherapy Results?
As the treated blood vessels start to break down, you’ll start to see small changes. Full sclerotherapy results are usually visible within a few weeks, though it may take about a month. You may need multiple treatments for an optimal outcome.
Am I A Good Candidate for Sclerotherapy?
You may be eligible for sclerotherapy if you have visible spider and / or varicose veins that you wish to eliminate for cosmetic or medical purposes and are not pregnant. Good candidates for sclerotherapy are under 60 years of age and in otherwise good health with no history of blood clots.
