Sclerotherapy Injections during a Spider Vein Treatment on the Legs at Glow Dermspa in Lakewood Ranch FL
Sclerotherapy Injections for Spider Veins


Sclerotherapy is a treatment for superficial spider veins and reticular veins. It is a highly effective therapy that involves the injection of small amounts of a medication through a tiny needle. The medication causes irritation within the small vessels, causing them to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body, reducing the appearance of these dilated surface veins while preserving blood flow in healthy veins.

Our patients get the best results from a series of treatment sessions and some maintenance over time to mitigate new veins that appear with aging.

Sclerotherapy FAQ

Sclerotherapy involves the injection of small amounts of saline or a medication called Asclera into the spider veins which causes them to collapse and disappear.
No. Sclerotherapy is limited to treating spider veins.
This minimally invasive procedure is easy to perform in the office and no anesthesia is required.
Sclerotherapy is effective at permanently treating the targeted veins. However, it does not prevent new veins from forming in the future. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following your specialist's recommendations can help minimize the development of new problem veins.
After sclerotherapy, veins typically disappear within three to six weeks. However, larger veins may take up to four months to fully fade away. The timeline can vary depending on the individual and the size of the treated veins. Additionally, multiple treatment sessions are typically necessary to achieve the desired outcome.
Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for most patients seeking to eliminate unsightly veins. When performed by our experienced professionals at Glow Dermspa, complications are rare. However, as with any medical procedure, some risks and side effects may occur. It's essential to discuss your medical history and potential risks with your specialist before undergoing treatment.
Sclerotherapy is generally well-tolerated by most patients. You may experience mild discomfort during the injection process, but the procedure is typically quick, and any pain usually subsides shortly after treatment. Our specialists at Glow Dermspa strive to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
Yes, if possible, elevating your legs after sclerotherapy can help promote proper blood flow, reduce swelling, and minimize discomfort. Your specialist at Glow Dermspa will provide you with specific post-treatment instructions to maximize your comfort and results.
It depends on the patient. Typically 2-4 treatments are needed for optimal results.
Generally there is no downtime, although patients should wait two to three days before performing intense exercise or heavy lifting.
Yes! This treatment benefits both men and women.
Wearing compression stockings after sclerotherapy is generally recommended for optimal results. These stockings help maintain consistent pressure on treated veins, promoting healing and improving circulation. Your specialist will provide guidance on the duration and type of compression stockings best suited for your needs.
It's best to avoid strenuous exercise for the first few days following sclerotherapy. Light to moderate physical activity, such as walking, is encouraged to promote healthy circulation. Your specialist at Glow Dermspa will provide personalized recommendations on when to resume your normal exercise routine.
It is advised to avoid alcohol consumption for at least 48 hours following sclerotherapy. Alcohol can cause blood vessels to dilate, potentially impacting the healing process and treatment efficacy.

How Sclerotherapy Works

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that targets unsightly veins, such as spider veins.

During the treatment, our highly trained professionals at Glow Dermspa inject a sclerosing solution directly into the problematic veins. This solution irritates the vein walls, causing them to collapse and eventually be reabsorbed by the body. As a result, blood flow is redirected to healthier veins, ultimately improving circulation and appearance.

Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective way to restore your skin’s natural beauty and reduce the appearance of unsightly veins.

What to Expect

Your sclerotherapy appointment at Glow Dermspa begins with a thorough consultation to discuss your concerns and goals. Our specialist will examine the areas you wish to treat, assess the severity of your vein issues, and determine if sclerotherapy is the best course of action for you.

Once a personalized treatment plan is developed, you will be positioned comfortably for the procedure. Our specialist will use a fine needle to inject the sclerosing solution into the targeted veins. You may experience some mild discomfort during the injections, but the process is relatively quick.

After the treatment, you may be asked to wear compression stockings to support the healing process and optimize results. Your specialist will provide detailed post-treatment instructions

Treatment Types

Sclerotherapy can be used to address a variety of vein-related concerns, providing both aesthetic and functional benefits.
One of the most common uses for sclerotherapy is the treatment of spider veins, which are small, thin veins that appear close to the skin’s surface. These veins can be red, blue, or purple and often have a web-like appearance. Sclerotherapy effectively eliminates spider veins, resulting in smoother, more even-toned skin.
Sclerotherapy may or may not be an effective treatment for varicose veins, which are larger, swollen, and twisted veins that can cause discomfort and aching pain. Please consult your specialist at Glow Dermspa to see what treatment option would be right for you.
Reticular veins, also known as feeder veins or blue veins, are slightly larger than spider veins and can cause discomfort or be the source of spider veins. Sclerotherapy can be used to treat reticular veins, reducing their appearance and associated symptoms.

Sclerotherapy can be used to treat facial veins, which are small, visible veins that appear on the face, particularly around the nose and cheeks. By targeting these veins with sclerotherapy, patients can enjoy a clearer complexion. Additionally, facial veins can also be treated with a Vbeam or Pulse-Dye Laser. We recommend consulting your specialist at Glow Dermspa to see what treatment option would be best for you.

Prominent hand veins can be a sign of aging or an inherited trait. Depending on the type of vein, sclerotherapy may be used to treat these veins, helping to restore a more youthful and smoother appearance to the hands. Filler for the hands can also be used to improve the appearance of the hands and decrease the visibility of veins and tendons, resulting in a rejuvenated younger looking hand.

Sclerotherapy is often utilized to treat leg veins, which can be a source of discomfort and cosmetic concern for many patients. By targeting and eliminating these veins, patients can achieve smoother, more evenly-toned legs.

Sclerotherapy can be used to treat veins on the ankles and feet, which can be a source of discomfort and cosmetic concern for some patients. By targeting these veins, patients can experience improved comfort and appearance.
