Sclerotherapy Ideal For Treating Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is a relatively painless and effective procedure to treat unsightly varicose or spider veins and requires little to no downtime. One of the most popular sclerotherapy treatments in Asheville is spider veins in the lower legs. Along with cosmetic benefits sclerotherapy can also help improve aching, swelling, burning, and night cramps.

How does Sclerotherapy work?
During your sclerotherapy treatment in Asheville a solution will be injected directly into the vein. This solution causes the treated vein to collapse, and the blood reroutes through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is eventually reabsorbed into local tissue.
Will I need to take time off from work?
Sclerotherapy treatments are performed in our office, and no anesthesia is necessary. The entire procedure typically takes less than an hour. Once complete, compression and slight massage is performed to the treated area to reduce or relieve swelling and pain. Compression socks or stockings and a compression pad may be used to ensure blood remains out of the treated vein. Most people return to their normal activities the same day.
