This blog by treatment experts at our medical spa highlights more about sclerotherapy including its working mechanism, types of sclerotherapy, and what you can expect from sclerotherapy at our Houston med spa.

What is Sclerotherapy and How Does It Work?

Sclerotherapy is a process in which, using a very small needle and specialized solution, unnecessary veins are injected and destroyed. The veins that are being eliminated are either varicose or spider veins, which are not necessary for blood flow.

Spider veins are tiny, delicate veins that are located near the skin’s surface. These incredibly thin veins are linked to the greater venous system, but they are not a necessary component of it. Spider veins can develop as a result of a variety of causes, such as pregnancy and other hormonally-related events, heredity, weight gain, occupations that involve extended standing or sitting, and the use of specific medications.

Varicose veins are another class of veins that require sclerotherapy. There are several ways in which varicose veins differ from spider veins. Varicose veins are bigger, tend to bulge, and typically measure more than a quarter of an inch in diameter. In addition to being linked to more serious vein problems, varicose veins are also more prone to cause pain. Sclerotherapy is an option for treating varicose veins in certain patients. However, in certain cases, surgery is required to treat this condition, and during your consultation. The experts at our Houston med spa will assess the condition and recommend the best course of therapy.

Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Sclerotherapy usually has favorable results, with 90% of patients reporting improvement after several sessions. In fact, it has worked for almost everyone that we recommend to undertake the treatment at our medical spa. Typically, treatments are spaced out by four to six weeks.

Types of Sclerotherapy Treatments Offered at Our Houston Med Spa

Sclerotherapy is accessible in three different procedures at our medical spa, and each is employed for a different reason, such as varicose or spider vein size. To determine which technique will yield the best results our medical spa recommends conducting a thorough personal history, family history, vein assessment, and personal preference evaluation prior to any sclerotherapy treatment. The number of damaged veins and their severity will dictate how many treatments are needed to achieve the best possible outcome.

These are the three forms of sclerotherapy available at New You Wellness Center:

  1. Conventional Sclerotherapy 
  2. Foam Sclerotherapy 
  3. Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy 
  4. Conventional Sclerotherapy 

This is the most basic type of sclerotherapy, in which a liquid sclerosant is injected straight into the vein. This form of treatment is mostly recommended for smaller veins. Contact our medical spa for more information about conventional sclerotherapy or to book an appointment.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy 

For deeper or larger superficial varicose veins, ultrasonography is used in this method called ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Ultrasound improves treatment precision by skewing which veins are actually causing the issue because certain deep veins cannot be seen and may put pressure on more superficial veins. This makes it possible to treat and improve varicose veins by targeting the appropriate veins. Contact our Houston spa for more information about ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy or to book an appointment.

Foam Sclerotherapy 

This form of sclerotherapy uses a distinct type of sclerosant called foam sclerosant which when air-exposed creates a foam rather than liquid consistency. Because of its thicker density, foam sclerotherapy has the following particular benefits:

  • Can effectively treat larger veins
  • The sclerosant can be utilized in lower doses in the afflicted veins
  • It can be administered more precisely when combined with ultrasound technology.

Access all of these treatments at our medical spa.
