What is Sclerotherapy?
Telangiectasia, more commonly known as spider veins, can be created by hormonal changes, genetics, obesity, blood clots, medications, and medical conditions. Spider veins are usually red, purple, or blue and can be easily seen through the skin while they grow in branching patterns on the face and body. Board-certified aesthetic physician Dr. Anayo Umerah performs sclerotherapy to minimize or remove visible spider veins on the face or body. A minimally invasive treatment with no required recovery period, sclerotherapy may give you an even skin tone that you'll want to show off in short shorts. Schedule an appointment at Ageless Aesthetics in Warner Robins or Macon, GA to learn more about nonsurgical sclerotherapy, plus other skin services.

What Can I Expect from My Sclerotherapy Treatment?
Sclerotherapy can be done in a private treatment room quickly and typically without anesthesia. The blood vessels being corrected will be marked, and then the overlying skin will be cleaned. A fine-gauge needle will be introduced into the vein so the sclerosing solution can be introduced. After the needle is empty, it will be removed and gauze will be put over the site of injection to stop any minor bleeding. This procedure will be repeated until all spider veins have been treated. After your sclerotherapy treatment, you may leave to resume all daily activities. You may notice mild swelling, redness, or bruising in the areas treated, but this will typically fade naturally. Compression garments will be recommended by Dr. Umerah to help your blood circulation after your procedure for better, faster results. It can take a while for the sclerotherapy to show results, but eventually, the treated blood vessels should shrink, turn white, and then disappear or fade. You may need two or more sclerotherapy sessions to achieve optimal results, but many patients are happy with the improvements after their first session.
