Here at Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, we are proud to offer this simple solution and encourage you to learn more about what it can do for you.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Spider veins are a small, threadlike vascular lesions that most often occur in the legs and lower body; they can come about for reasons of hormonal shift, genetics, or lifestyle. Sclerotherapy is a safe, minimally invasive approach that involves injecting a special solution (sclerosant) into the unwelcome vein, causing it to break down and be absorbed naturally by the body.
How Does It Work?
If you are found eligible for sclerotherapy, we will welcome you into our office for your treatment session. During the process, a qualified professional will prepare a dose of sclerosant fluid and inject it directly into the unwanted vein. This fluid will irritate the inner lining of this vein, bringing about its eventual collapse and disintegration. Spider veins, typically being small, may disappear within three to six weeks. Once the veins have disappeared, they will not return.
