Sclerotherapy at Clarity Medical Aesthetics.
Many of the patients at Clarity Medical Aesthetics have complained about unsightly spider veins, and we sought to offer multiple treatment options for our patients. We take pride in providing our patients with customized solutions, and we believe that sclerotherapy is the gold standard in treating spider veins.
How it works:
The technique involves injecting an unsightly vein with an FDA-approved chemical. This chemical causes the vessel to close up and disappear. Sclerotherapy is an ideal treatment option for any persons who suffer from spider veins and smaller varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is performed in the office and is typically painless. Clarity’s Kati Midgley, PA-C has been teaching the art and science of sclerotherapy for eight years.
What to expect:
During your complimentary consultation, Kati Midgley PA-C will perform a complete medical evaluation of your veins. Kati will meet with you one-on-one to determine if sclerotherapy is medically appropriate for your individual needs. At times Kati may recommend a medical ultrasound or refer you to a vascular specialist for additional evaluation, Once your consultation process is completed, you can schedule an appointment at Clarity Medical Aesthetics at a time that is convenient for you.
During the sclerotherapy treatment, the “sclerosing” agent is injected into the vein. The chemical causes inflammation in the walls of the vein, causing them to swell shut and stick together. When the needle is withdrawn, pressure is immediately applied to the area and the area is often massaged to distribute the solution. The procedure is usually painless, though you may experience a slight burning, itching or tingling sensation.
When scheduling your appointment, you may want to consider that fall through early spring is considered the best time to have this treatment performed. This time of year will allow time for you to heal and to cover up the compression stockings.
After your treatment:
It’s important to note that treatments are completely customized and can vary in length of time and number of necessary treatments. Each vein can require several injections and veins generally disappear in weeks to months. Results may continue to improve for up to one year. Veins can require several injections and veins generally disappear within a few months. Most patients require multiple sessions in order to fully treat their spider veins. You will be asked to wear a compression garment for a few days to maximize your results. Clarity asks that you remember to follow your post-procedure instructions as best as you can to get optimal results.
