Sclerotherapy - Spider Vein Treatment
by: Mehmet Hakan

Venule Flares or spider veins are the small purple or red veins which can form anywhere on the leg, from the thigh to the ankle. They are usually hereditary or hormonal in origin and are extremely common. Spider veins can cause discomfort and are unsightly, particularly if widespread. They can be treated successfully by sclerotherapy, usually followed by some form of compression.

Is sclerotherapy painful?

Most patients report little discomfort. There may be a slight to moderate burning sensation immediately after the injection but this disappears within seconds. Occasionally the legs are tender for a day or two, but this is unusual.

How quickly will the veins disappear?

It may take up to four weeks for any change to be seen. Usually vessels have to be injected more than once, an average of two to four times. The treatments are performed at monthly intervals until the desired effect is achieved.

Usually about 70-80% of all injected vessels will disappear and sometimes all will eventually go. The treatment, however, does not prevent new vessels from occurring and some patients may require maintenance treatment from time to time.

How successful is the treatment?

The treatment is successful in about 95% of people. However, some 5% of patients will have little or no response.

Is there an alternative to sclerotherapy?

Until recently, alternatives to sclerotherapy (such as laser treatment) had been fairly unreliable. We have, however, acquired the new AURA laser, which is showing great promise in the treatment of those who have shown limited response to injection treatment.
