Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment


Remove Spider Veins in NY

Women and men who are ready to say goodbye to unsightly spider veins can enjoy the results of sclerotherapy at NY’s Hudson Dermatology. Sclerotherapy is a medical treatment that has been used for almost a century to safely and effectively remove unwanted veins.

Veins are equipped with valves that control the flow of blood throughout the body. When a valve malfunctions, the blood can’t make its way back to the heart, causing the blood to remain trapped in the leg, leading to varicose or spider veins.

Patients typically want to remove spider veins for cosmetic reasons. Varicose veins are similar but larger, typically develop on the legs, and can cause discomfort, including aching, burning, swelling, and night cramps. Sclerotherapy vein treatment at NY’s Hudson Dermatology focuses only on spider veins and involves injecting a solution into the vein, irritating the blood vessel and causing it to collapse. With time, the blood vessel transitions into scar tissue that is invisible to the eye. Generally, the collapsed vein disappears within a few weeks.

What Can I Expect During a Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment Session in New York?

Prior to scheduling your appointment, a member of the Hudson Dermatology team will perform a physical evaluation and discuss your medical history—including allergies and previous treatments—to ensure that you are an ideal candidate. The doctor will ask you to avoid taking certain medications prior to your sclerotherapy vein treatment and discuss the details of the procedure to ensure you are comfortable and confident moving forward.

You will be encouraged to arrive at your appointment wearing loose, comfortable clothing. Avoid shaving or applying lotion to your legs prior to the session. Typically, a sclerotherapy spider vein treatment takes about half an hour.

Your dermatologist will apply alcohol to the location of the vein on the leg before inserting a thin needle. Some patients experience a brief moment of discomfort, while other patients don’t experience any sensation at all. Sclerotherapy vein treatment at Hudson Dermatology is so brief and mild that patients don’t require anesthesia.

Some patients have multiple spider veins they would like removed, and multiple veins may be treated during a single session depending on their size and location. If you’re interested in having multiple areas addressed during your session, discuss this with the Hudson Dermatology team during your consultation, which is also when you can talk about other details, including sclerotherapy cost.

Note that patients who have spider veins on the face benefit from a different approach: using lasers to collapse the thin, visible vessels. The light energy heats hemoglobin in the veins, causing them to collapse and no longer be seen through the surface.

What’s the Recovery Process Following a Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment in New York?

You may experience slight bruising, redness, or pain at the injection site following your appointment, but this should subside within a few weeks. After your appointment, your doctor will provide aftercare instructions to help with a quick recovery. This will include wearing support socks or wraps to compress the treated vessel, and remaining active with low-impact exercises like walking to prevent the formation of blood clots. Patients should avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin and ibuprofen for two days after their appointment, as well as avoid direct sunlight to the treated area.

Patients should rest for the remainder of the day after a session but may resume their normal activities and routine within a few days of their sclerotherapy vein treatment. NY’s Hudson Dermatology team may schedule additional sessions four to six weeks apart to ensure the best possible results. The goal of every sclerotherapy vein treatment is to get rid of unwanted veins while prioritizing your safety, comfort, and confidence.
