Spider veins - the red, purple, and blue veins that appear in small clusters on the thighs, calves, and ankles - are a problem for millions of women. If they have made an unwelcome appearance on your legs, you are not alone. An estimated 50 percent of the adult female population suffers from this cosmetic nuisance. Dr. Terracina can help to eliminate spider veins through sclerotherapy. Our skilled dermatologist injects the veins with a sclerosing solution that contains a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The spider veins subsequently collapse and fade away. There is evidence that sclerotherapy also alleviates swelling, aching, night cramps, and other symptoms associated with spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a simple outpatient procedure that takes only about 45 minutes. You can expect 50 to 80 percent of the injected veins to disappear with each injection session. If any veins do not respond to the sclerosing agent, it may be possible to treat them with laser surgery. After your sclerotherapy treatment, you will be able to drive yourself home, and we will encourage you to take walks and resume all your normal activities. As part of a body makeover, sclerotherapy can be used to enhance the results of a liposuction or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure. Our Pine Bluff and Jackson, Mississippi area patients praise sclerotherapy for its effectiveness and convenience, and we think you will be impressed with the results as well. If spider veins have caused you concern, schedule an appointment today to eliminate them with sclerotherapy.
