Sclerotherapy is one of the most popular non-surgical medspa procedures to treat small varicose veins and spider veins. Success rate with sclerotherapy is very high as long as the procedure is performed by a trained provider.
During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss all aspects of sclerotherapy, including recovery and estimated appearance of results. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides sclerotherapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Appearance of Full Results
Complete results with sclerotherapy will be seen over a period of time as the treated veins collapse gradually and get eliminated through the body’s metabolic process. As the diseased veins disappear, the patient can notice clean and smooth skin in the treated areas.
The establishment of full results will take a varying amount of time from one patient to another. This will depend on the extent of vein problem, the skill of the treatment provider, the amount of sclerotherapy received over a single or multiple treatment sessions, the location of the treated area, and the patient’s individual healing ability.
In most cases, substantial improvement following sclerotherapy medspa treatment will occur in about three to six weeks. For smaller varicose and spider veins, the results will be seen faster, while the other veins can make more time to resolve. Some of the stubborn veins may not get eliminated after the first sclerotherapy treatment. The provider may recommend a second session, or a combination with another treatment such as laser in such cases.
The good thing about sclerotherapy procedure is that the veins that respond to the treatment usually do not recur. However, new veins may appear at some point of time in the future for some of the patients. The treatment provider will likely schedule a follow-up appointment about four weeks after the first procedure to review the results.
At this point, the provider will determine whether any additional sclerotherapy sessions or another treatment combination are required. In most cases, the patient will be asked to wait for at least six weeks before a second sclerotherapy session can be undertaken. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for sclerotherapy.
The patient must follow the post-op recovery and care instructions of the treatment provider in order to achieve optimal outcome at the earliest. According to various studies, the overall success rate of sclerotherapy is elimination of about 60 to 80 percent of the treated veins in a single treatment session. Therefore, the patient should have realistic expectations from the results after the first treatment.
The provider will encourage the patient to resume walking and regular daily activities after the sclerotherapy treatment session. Most patients would be able to drive back home on their own. The key to success in the post-op phase will lie in how diligently the patient follows the advice on wearing compression stockings. The pressure of the stockings should be as prescribed by the provider, and the stockings should be worn for the prescribed duration.
