SCLEROTHERAPY (SPIDER VEINS)
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting solution directly into discolored, bulging or damaged veins. These unsightly veins can not only cause pain and discomfort, but may also lower a patient’s self-esteem. Sclerotherpy procedures successfully shrink and ultimately cause these unsightly veins to fade away, making them pain free and no longer a source of embarrassment. Although there are different methods used for Sclerotherapy, Dr. Lee exclusively uses Hypertonic Saline (salty water) commonly referred to as (HTS) as an injecting solution to shrink spider veins. He uses the (HTS) method due to its low risk and the fact that studies have proven it to be the safest effective solution available.
How Sclerotherapy Works
Sclerotherapy works by injecting the saline solution directly into the vein using a micro-fine needle. The injected solution immediately begins working on drying up the cells within the lining of the effected blood vessels, eventually forcing them to shut down and be safely and naturally absorbed by the body.
Sclerotherapy treatments are administered in a clinic by a physician or licensed provider. The time required per session may vary depending upon the number of spider veins treated. There may be some stinging for a few minutes after each injection and bruising may last 7-10 days at the injection site. To prevent swelling and achieve the best results (up to 50% better) it is highly recommended that Class II Compression Hose are worn after treatment.
When Sclerotherapy Injections Are Needed
As a highly respected provider of Spider Vein injections Las Vegas Doctor Garry R. Lee recommends Hypertonic Saline (HTS) be administered in three separate treatments approximately 4-8 weeks apart. The Sclerotherapy clinic offers packages of three (3) treatments in order to achieve optimal results.
