What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is medical procedure used to eliminate varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot.

During a Sclerotherapy session for cosmetic spider veins tiny injections with a solution Asclera cause the unsightly, surface vein to almost disappear in front of the patient’s eyes. Patients can generally experience a 40% improvement in the aesthetic appearance of spider veins after each Sclerotherapy session. Depending on the patient’s condition and cosmetic goals, Dr. Dana Coberly—our plastic surgeon—typically recommends 2-3 sessions about four weeks apart, lasting approximately thirty minutes each to achieve optimal results.

Dr. Coberly specializes in the treatment of leg vein disorders and conditions, and has achieved a phenomenal success rate in eliminating spider veins using Sclerotherapy and occasionally lasers as a backup device for refractory red vessels. Our number one goal is to restore a healthier, more youthful appearance to our patients’ legs.
