Patients looking to reduce the appearance of visible varicose and spider veins on their legs can achieve desired results with minimally-invasive sclerotherapy treatments at Hazen Plastic Surgery. Sclerotherapy treatments are safe and effective for eliminating the appearance of visible veins for a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Spider veins and varicose veins are caused by venous reflux, causing veins to swell and become visible on the surface of the skin. With sclerotherapy treatments in Princeton, patients can constrict and erase veins from view for a clearer and more even skin tone and texture. Sclerotherapy works by injecting a saline solution into the varicose or spider vein, which causes the vein to collapse and fade away. Blood flow is then redirected to healthier veins that aren’t visible on the surface of the skin.
Sclerotherapy requires no downtime and, other than a slight pinch during the injection, is relatively painless for most patients. Results can be seen almost immediately but optimal results may not appear until weeks following the treatment.
