Spider Vein Removal / Sclerotherapy

Millions of women are bothered by spider veins, those small yet unsightly clusters of red, blue or purple veins that most commonly appear on the thighs, calves and ankles. In fact, it is estimated that at least half of the adult female population is plagued with this common cosmetic problem. Today, plastic surgeons around the world are treating spider veins with sclerotherapy. In this simple procedure. Veins are injected with a sclerosing solution, which causes them to collapse and fade from view. Although this procedure has been used in Europe for more than 50 years, it has only become popular during the past decade. The introduction of sclerosing agents that are mild enough to be used in small veins has made sclerotherapy predictable and relatively painless.

Sclerotherapy – The Procedure -
A sclerotherapy session lasts between 15 and 45 minutes. You will be asked to lie down on the examination table and the sclerosing agent will be injected into the affected veins. Approximately one injection is administered for every inch of spider vein. As the procedure continues, you will feel small needle sticks and possibly a mild burning sensation. However, the needle used is so fine and the sclerosing solution is so mild that pain is usually minimal.

What to expect from sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy does not require anaesthesia and it is performed in Dr Fayman’s rooms.
Sclerotherapy can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. After each session, the veins will appear lighter. The skin on your legs will appear younger, cleaner and healthier looking. Two or more sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results. You should be aware that the procedure treats only those veins that are currently visible; it does nothing to permanently alter the venous system or prevent new veins from surfacing in the future.

After the Procedure
You will be encouraged to walk. Prolonged sitting or standing should be avoided for the first two weeks after treatment. Heavy weight lifting is not recommended in the period immediately after the treatment. A 2-3 months interval must pass before you may have your second series of injections in the same site. After each treatment, you will notice further improvement.

The best candidate for Sclerotherapy
Women of any age may be good candidates for sclerotherapy, but most fall in the 30 to 60 age group. If you are pregnant or breast feeding you may be advised to postpone sclerotherapy treatment. Spider veins in men are not nearly as common as they are in women.
However, sclerotherapy is just as effective for men who seek treatment.
