Sclerotherapy in Phoenix, AZ
BodyNew MedSpa, the premiere medical spa of Scottsdale, Phoenix, and the surrounding areas in Arizona, offers sclerotherapy to its patients.
Millions of women are bothered by spider veins and superficial varicose veins, those small yet unsightly clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that most commonly appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles. In fact, it’s estimated that at least half of the adult female population is plagued with this common cosmetic problem. Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical outpatient procedure designed to diminish the appearance of spider veins and smaller, superficial varicose veins. Regardless of body location, including legs and the face, unsightly veins can be removed with sclerotherapy.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
In this rather simple procedure, veins are injected directly with a sclerosing solution, which causes them to collapse and fade from view. The introduction of sclerosing agents that are mild enough to be used in small veins has made sclerotherapy predictable and relatively painless. The procedure may also remedy the bothersome symptoms associated with spider veins, including aching, burning, swelling, and night cramps.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Sclerotherapy?
Although this procedure has been used in Europe for more than 50 years, it has only become popular in the United States during the past two decades. An ideal candidate for the sclerotherapy procedure will be a non-smoker, who is physically healthy and psychologically stable. Because scientists still do not know the effects of the sclerosing solution on breast milk, pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding should not consider any sclerotherapy procedure.
