What is Sclerotherapy?

Spider veins are those tiny small blue and red blood vessels seen mostly on the legs.  They may be caused by genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, certain medications, blood clots, and some medical conditions. The late Dr. Eugene Bodian was the pioneer of Sclerotherapy.  Dr. Adam Bodian continues to perform sclerotherapy to reduce or remove the appearance of spider veins with the experitse handed down to him by his father. A minimally invasive procedure with no downtime for recovery, sclerotherapy may give you an even skin tone that you'll want to show off in short shorts. Schedule a consultation at Bodian Dermatology in Great Neck, NY to learn more about nonsurgical sclerotherapy, plus other skin treatments.

Will sclerotherapy Work for Me?

Sclerotherapy is helpful for patients who don't like the small or medium blood vessels that can be seen through their skin. Generally, these spider veins are most obvious on the legs so they avoid shorts, swimsuits, or other clothing that do not cover their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy must be in good overall health the day of their treatment to minimize the chance of reactions or complications. Patients should not have a history of blood clots or be pregnant.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Sclerotherapy can be performed in a private treatment room quickly and with no anesthesia. The spider veins to be corrected will be marked, and then the skin will be sanitized. A fine needle will be inserted into the vein, and the sclerosing solution will be applied. The needle will be removed and a bandage will cover the injection site to treat any minor bleeding. The procedure can be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.

What to Expect after SCLEROTHERAPY

Once you are done with sclerotherapy, you can leave when you feel comfortable to resume all normal activities. You may have some redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated areas, but this will usually subside on its own. It may take a while for the treatment to work, but the treated veins should shrink, turn white, and then fade or disappear. You may need at least two treatments to get your optimal results, but most patients are pleased with their improvements after one treatment.
