Sclerotherapy For Spider Veins Finally Available In Victoria, BC

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure to treat spider veins. During the treatment, the visible abnormal veins will be injected with a solution that causes them to swell, collapse, and fade away. 

Sclerotherapy is a safe procedure; patients are often allowed to return to normal activity the same day, with limited restrictions. To ensure the safest and fastest sclerotherapy recovery, there are four rules to follow:

  1. Wear compression stockings. In most cases, you should wear compression stockings for 2-3 weeks after the treatment. Clear Skin Victoria’s vein specialists will help you determine the degree of compression needed and how long you’ll have to wear them. 
  1. Avoid the sun. Overexposure to the sun can cause your skin to age prematurely and develop spider veins. To allow your veins to heal properly, avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks and always wear a mineral sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher when you are outside. 
  2. Avoid strenuous exercise. Sclerotherapy doesn’t usually require any downtime, and patients can walk immediately after treatment. However, plan to take it easy for a few days and avoid strenuous exercise for at least three days post-treatment. 
  3. Follow up with your vein specialist. You should schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure proper healing and determine that no additional treatments are required. 

Sclerotherapy is a proven medical procedure used to treat spider veins. It is a quick and simple procedure that offers many benefits, including: 

  • Quick treatment time (approximately 15-30 minutes)
  • Almost painless procedure 
  • The high success rate eliminates the appearance of spider veins.
