Some people may be embarrassed by the appearance of their legs due to web-like red, purple, and blue spider veins. Fortunately, there is a treatment available at Alta Vista Dermatology for men and women seeking emotional relief. We offer sclerotherapy to residents of Highlands Ranch and Denver, CO.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a dedicated vein treatment that eliminates the appearance of unsightly spider veins. This is done using a fine needle to inject solutions such as Sotradecol or Asclera into the blood vessel. The solution causes the lining to swell and stick together as well as the blood to clot, making the blood vessel fade away.
At Alta Vista Dermatology, we use sclerotherapy for the following:
Sclerotherapy for Facial Vein Treatment
The face is a sensitive, delicate area. However, when performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional, sclerotherapy can be an effective treatment method for facial veins. The precision and knowledge necessary to perform this treatment safely should not be overlooked, and you should only seek facial vein treatment from a board-certified dermatologist. At Alta Vista Dermatology, our team includes a number of board-certified professionals who are well-equipped to give you the personalized care you need.
Sclerotherapy for Leg Vein Treatment
Although they can be found in many places on the body, spider veins most often develop on the legs. These leg veins are usually the reason that patients pursue spider vein treatment. At Alta Vista Dermatology, we have had great success using sclerotherapy for the treatment of leg veins. Patients can feel confident choosing this method of leg vein treatment, as it has a very high success rate and requires no downtime whatsoever.
How Many Sclerotherapy Are Needed?
We will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs, which will include the number of sessions required to achieve optimal results. The number of treatment sessions varies from one to several. After treatment, you can look forward to no downtime, allowing you to return to work or resume other activities. The procedure may be ideal during a lunch break, as it may only take a few minutes to a half hour depending on the number of veins treated. You can count on the veins disappearing about four to six weeks after initial treatment. The success rate of sclerotherapy is over 90 percent, and it leads as a popular treatment.
How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?
