What is Schlerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is performed on varicose veins and spider veins to reduce their appearance. Dr. Cotter only injects spider veins which are the tiny red, blue or purple thread like veins near the surface of the skin. During the procedure, a very fine needle is used to inject a salt solution directly into the spider veins. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell, stick together and clot. Over time, the appearance of the injected veins fade.
What to Expect
Your treatment will be performed in our office. During your recovery, you may be instructed to wear support hose to help your legs heal. Treated sites will appear bruised and you may feel some cramping in your legs for the first day or two after treatment. This discomfort is temporary.
After each treatment you will notice improvement of your skin’s appearance. However, it is important to realize that new spider veins may surface in the future.
A consultation with Dr. Cotter may be required prior to treatment.
The cost includes a $75 set up fee + $125 per cc injected.
This treatment is eligible for a 5% discount for cash or check purchases.
