Spider veins, also known as telangiectasia, may be caused by hormonal changes, obesity, genetics, blood clots, a medical condition, and medications. Spider veins are typically blue, purple, or red and may easily seen through the skin as they branch out on the face and body. Board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Thornwell Parker and Kevin Hanz, along with their skilled team at Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery, offer sclerotherapy to minimize or eliminate the appearance of spider veins on the face or body. A minimally invasive treatment with no recovery time needed, sclerotherapy can help you get a more even skin tone that you can show off.

Sclerotherapy is a good option for men and women who are bothered by small to medium blood vessels that are visible through their skin. Generally, these spider veins are most visible on the legs, so patients avoid shorts, swimsuits, or other clothing that do not cover their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy must be in good overall health before their procedure to prevent complications or reactions. Patients should not be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
Sclerotherapy will be done in one of our treatment rooms quickly and with no anesthesia. The spider veins being addressed will be marked and the skin will be cleaned. A fine gauge needle will be inserted into the vein and the sclerosing solution will be applied. After removing the needle, a bandage will cover the injection site to stop any minor bleeding. This process will be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.
What to Expect
Once you are done with sclerotherapy, you can leave our office to continue all normal activities. You may have some bruising, inflammation, or redness in the treated areas, but this will usually fade on its own. Compression garments are recommended by Drs. Parker and Hanz to help your blood circulation after your procedure for faster, better results. It may take some time for the treatment to work, but eventually the treated spider veins should shrink, become white, and then fade or disappear. You may require 2 or more sessions to achieve optimal results, but most patients are pleased with the improvements after the first treatment.
