Complexions Rx of San Diego, CA offers a minimally invasive procedure used to treat visable or otherwise noticeable blood vessles of the legs (or rarely other body parts) by injections called Sclerotherapy or leg vein therapy.
Sclerotherapy involves the injection of the solution Asclera into each affected vein, causing the inside of the vessel to form scar tissue and collapse over time. A very small needle is used for injection and the procedure is generally well tolerated.
The process on average requires 2-5 treatment sessions, one month apart. In most cases the same vessels will need to be treated more than once.
The side effects of a sclerotherapy treatment include mild itching immediately after treatment with redness and swelling in the treated area, some bruising is to be expected.
Factors that may lead to visible leg vessels include heredity, age, gender, obesity, pregnancy, and prolonged standing or sitting.
Individual consultation and assessment of your history and physical findings will dictate your optimal treatment plan.
