When we think of varicose and spider veins, we usually think of those pesky pink and blue veins that wind their way around the legs and sometimes the face. While these are definitely a cosmetic concern, these veins can actually produce physical symptoms if left untreated, such as heavy legs and muscle cramping. At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we offer premier sclerotherapy services for patients with varicose and spider veins of any severity. This no-downtime injection therapy works to eliminate these troublesome veins, restoring your cosmetic appearance and your healthy blood flow. If you are interested in receiving sclerotherapy in Beverly Hills at our office, please read more or give our office a call today.
As one of the oldest forms of cosmetic treatment, sclerotherapy has been around since the 1920s. It works by injecting a sclerosant, or hardening solution into the spider or varicose veins. This solution creates shrinkage in the target veins, causing it to fade and disappear over the next several weeks.
Sclerotherapy is considered the gold standard in varicose and spider vein treatment. It is noninvasive and takes less than an hour to perform, with patients able to resume their daily activities immediately following treatment.
Another advantage to sclerotherapy is its ability to prevent recurrence. It not only addresses varicose and spider veins, it also addresses what are called “feeder veins,” which cause the varicose and spider veins to form in the first place.
The rate of recurrence after sclerotherapy is very low, causing patients to receive sclerotherapy over laser or invasive treatment methods.
Even with no downtime, no recovery period, and very little discomfort, sclerotherapy offers better results than competitive procedures. Sclerotherapy has effectively helped patients treat:
The sclerotherapy procedure is very simple and very quick. After thoroughly cleaning the treatment area with alcohol, your practitioner uses a very small needle to inject the sclerosing solution into the appropriate vein.
This solution then causes the target vein to swell and shut. Your body naturally finds more healthy veins through which to pass blood. Once the target vein has been deactivated, it will slowly become scar tissue and disappear over the next several weeks.
During your sclerotherapy procedure in Beverly Hills, you may experience mild stinging or cramps as the solution is injected into your veins. This is completely normal and reflects the effectiveness of the procedure. If you like, your practitioner can use a numbing topical cream to help with any discomfort.
After each injection, your practitioner will massage the treatment area. This is to keep blood out of the injected vessels, as well as to disperse the solution over the entire treatment area.
Sclerotherapy, quite simply, is awesome. I had these super annoying veins on my thighs that kept me from wearing shorts or skirts. This was one of those things I kept putting off because it didn’t affect me on a daily basis, or at least I didn’t think it did. Once I finally went to see Lasky and got my sclerotherapy, I finally found out what I had been missing out on this whole time. I feel like my legs are free, and just in time for summer. Lasky in Los Angeles is the perfect place if you need sclerotherapy.
Once the procedure is over, we will have you relax for several minutes while your practitioner reviews the area to make sure the treatment was successful. Once she is done, we will have you stand up and walk around. For the rest of the day, it’s important to remain at least somewhat active so that your legs adapt to the altered flow of blood.
During the first several weeks after sclerotherapy, it is wise to avoid excessive sun exposure on the treatment area. This may cause dark spots on the treatment area. If any questions or concerns arise after receiving sclerotherapy, please give our office a call. We want our relationship with you to continue long after your treatment, as this goes toward providing among the best sclerotherapy Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have to offer.
