Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins in Utah
If you are tired of unsightly spider veins, you have affordable options to help achieve smooth, beautiful legs. Sclerotherapy is an innovative procedure that does not require anesthesia and you can immediately resume normal activities. Sclerotherapy is an affordable treatment for spider veins and provides excellent results without risky surgery or downtime. Complete recovery from sclerotherapy may take up to 8 weeks to see the full results, without swelling or bruising, but you should begin to see fading within just a few weeks. Depending on the number, size and the depth of your varicose veins or broken capillaries, you may need more than one treatment for optimal results.
Why Choose Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is used for advanced, minimally-invasive treatment of feeder veins and spider veins. This safe, effective procedure uses individualized concentrations of FDA approved sclerosing solution to eliminate spider veins. Your professional trained La Belle Vie medical aesthetician will inject the solution directly into the targeted vein, this causes the vein to close in upon itself. In-office sclerotherapy is well tolerated and only takes 20-30 minutes, on average. Post-treatment includes wearing compression stockings to help shrink the veins and decrease bruising and swelling.

What to Expect for Your Sclerotherapy Procedure
Do not apply lotion to your legs before or after sclerotherapy. We recommend that you do not apply lotion to your legs, face or other treatment areas before or after your visit.
For Sclerotherapy, your professional aesthetician will use a fine needle to slowly inject your customized solution into the targeted vein. Compression and massage are then applied to disperse the solution. A compression pad may be placed on the treated area if you are having more than one sclerotherapy injection during your visit.
After sclerotherapy, the treatment areas will be covered, and you will be required to wear compression socks. It is important that you stand up and walk around.
Moving your legs after the treatment will help prevent the formation of blood clots. Although you can resume normal activities, graduating compression stockings or bandages need to be worn for 1-3 weeks to maintain pressure on the treatment area(s).
Common Side Effects
After sclerotherapy, you can generally return to normal activities within a day. As with any treatment, there may be common side effects, these may include:
- Raised red areas
- Small skin sores
- Darkened Lines or Spots
- Multiple Tiny Bed Blood Vessels
Serious complications, although rare, should be addressed immediately, these may include:
- Blood Clots
