Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used for centuries to treat various vascular conditions. Recently, micro sclerotherapy has become increasingly popular for treating spider veins and other small vessels.
Micro sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure involving injecting a solution (usually saline or a detergent) into small veins. The solution works to damage the vein walls, causing them to collapse and eventually fade from view. When the solution is injected into the vein, it works to damage the vein walls and cause them to collapse. Over time, the vein will fade from view as the body reabsorbs it.
Micro sclerotherapy is generally considered safe and effective, with minimal side effects. The most common side effect is bruising, which usually resolves within a few weeks. Other potential side effects include itching, swelling, and redness at the injection site.
If you are considering micro sclerotherapy for your spider veins, consult a board-certified dermatologist or vein specialist to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure.
