Why visit our vein clinic to treat visible spider veins?
You likely will not give much thought to your veins - until a problem arises. Suddenly, we notice a change with the visible appearance of “spider veins” or varicose veins. They most often resemble red or blue lines and some can get swollen or raised. The legs are where these veins usually appear; particularly on the calves and behind the knees. At our vein clinic in Brownsville, Tx. located inside Isabella Medical Beauty Spa our aesthetic specialists offer Sclerotherapy to reduce the appearance of visible spider veins and restore your smooth skin — without the need of surgery.
What happens during the procedure?
The treatment itself involves several injections of a sclerosing agent directly into these leaky vessels. You will lie on your back, with legs slightly elevated. The treatment area is then cleansed with alcohol. Then, a small needle delivers the solution into the veins.
Will I need follow-up visits after my spider veins treatment?
We will schedule a follow-up visit in a few weeks at our vein clinic to check on your progress. Not only will we assess how you are doing by your appearance, but we will also consider other issues, such as pain or other discomforts.
Patience is a prerequisite for the procedure, as the process can require several treatment sessions. Veins will not immediately look better, and they will often appear to be worse initially post-treatment. After your treatment, you will be obligated to wear compression bandages or stockings for 1-2 weeks to aid in circulation. A short period of elevation may be required, but afterward, regular walks or exercise helps promote vascular flow.
