Leg Spider Vein Treatment Huntsville
Sclerotherapy treats spider veins, tiny purple and red blood vessels, that develop on the legs. The procedure involves a series of micro-injections which instills a solution into the veins using a very tiny needle– so fine that you can barely feel it. This solution acts to eliminate the blood vessel. The body then replaces these vessels with a band of tissue without harming circulation.
The procedure is done in the office and requires no sedation or anesthesia. Your treatment may last from 15 – 45 minutes depending on how many veins you wish to have treated in one session. Those with only a few tiny veins may need only one treatment. Usually the vessels disappear over a period of two weeks to two months. If the veins are larger, each will likely need two to three treatments to totally resolve. The treated veins will not return but you may develop new spider veins in the future.
