Our Sclerotherapy in Denver is an efficient and highly effective treatment to resolve smaller varicose and spider veins. The principle behind is to cause the vein to scar, forcing the blood to reroute to another vein network, resulting in the reabsorption of the damaged vein and the fading of the skin discoloration. Treated veins can fade in a few weeks, though some may take a month or more.
Sclerotherapy is normally considered when the veins being treated are small in diameter. It can significantly improve the appearance of varicose and spider veins – often used to help patient feel more comfortable in their own skin, without embarrassing visible veins. Sclerotherapy can also be effective for a range of bothersome symptoms such as:
At La Fontaine Aesthetics we offer state-of-the-art treatment options. We greet you with hospitality and professionalism at our luxury private clinic. We are focused on minimally invasive treatments and sclerotherapy is among our most relied-upon vein treatments. It is fast, effective and virtually painless.
This procedure is done right at our center without anesthesia and it often takes less than an hour. Depending upon initial results, a follow up treatment may be recommended. In most cases, a single visit should be all that’s needed.
Our on-site advanced diagnostics and highly experienced, board-certified physician will quickly establish your medical condition and the severity of the vein problems and symptoms you need resolved. Our MD will go over all your options and help you choose the one best-suited for to produce the best outcome.
You will get a full evaluation of your veins and any underlying blood vessel disease. We will cover your complete medical history including recent illnesses, medications you take, allergies and any previous treatments you may have had for your veins, and the outcome you experienced. If you take aspirin, NSAIDs, or blood thinners you will likely have to stop before the procedure to reduce bleeding risk. We will work closely with your other doctors in planning your treatment. You may be required to get ultrasound imaging, a completely painless diagnostic procedure using sound waves to view your leg or other afflicted area.
For the best results in Sclerotherapy Denver has to offer its patients, we will have you lie on your back with legs elevated and get an injection with a thin needle to deliver the sclerotherapy solution into the afflicted vein. Most patients report no discomfort with the injection. In some cases, we include lidocaine as a gentle local anesthetic. After the injection, a compression and massage is performed on the area to keep new blood flow out of the vein and to distribute the injected solution throughout the vein. If you are having more than one vein treated, a compression pad will be applied to the previous site until they have all been addressed. Some veins may require more than one injection depending upon the size and length of it.
You will be able to get up and walk soon after. In fact, movement and walking is important so blood clots do not form. Most patients will need to wear compression socks or wraps for a couple of weeks so compression is maintained on the treated area. Although you will likely be able to return to normal activities on the same day, you will be advised to avoid strenuous exercise for two weeks. Recovery is designed to optimize the process of re-channeling vein blood flow and accelerating the closure of the afflicted vein so it fades.
