What is Sclerotherapy? 

Sclerotherapy is an effective non-surgical treatment for spider veins. Helping patients regain smooth, clear legs. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a special solution, Asclera, directly into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade from view.  

How Long is A Sclerotherapy Appointment? 

Sclerotherapy sessions are typically short, often lasting about 30 minutes to an hour. This makes it a convenient option for busy individuals.  


How Much Downtime is There?  

Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Things to avoid after treatment include: 

  • No hot tubs or baths for at least 2 weeks 
  • No swimming in ocean/lakes/pools for 1 week 
  • No exercise for 48 hours 
  • Avoid sun exposure/UV exposure for 1 month on treated areas and use 30 SPF sunscreen on the legs 

Typically, the treated areas look worse than before treatment for the first two weeks. You can expect redness, a ropey appearance, darkness around the veins, and bruising during this timeframe. After two weeks, the veins will gradually start to fade over the next 4-6 weeks. Often it takes a more than one session of Sclerotherapy, and we recommend doing at least 2 or 3 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart.
