Sclerotherapy has been a classic method to treat spider veins
(the tiny, asymptomatic veins that appear on the legs as thin &
short bright red lines), reticular veins (similar to spider veins but more extensive, often purplish and convoluted lines), varicose veins (larger, often rope-like veins which may be even itchy or tender) and sometimes even deeper veins like the great and small saphanous veins (GSV & SSV).
“However, today, we can use newer advanced technology — well covered under your health insurance — to treat the underlying diseased veins that give rise to these spider and varicose veins. This way, it may not be necessary to do the expensive therapy to achieve good cosmetic results.”
Sclerotherapy has been shown not to be as effective for the
treatment of the deeper large veins as the newer techniques have found to be.
Furthermore, it may not even be necessary to treat the varicose/spider veins, once we treat the underlying bad veins properly.
Here at Alpha Vein Clinic, we use a handful of treatments including RadioFrequency Ablation, Clarivein, or VenaSeal™, to treat the underlying incompetent larger veins as a medical condition. We then observe the progress of the undesirable visible veins for 1-2 months. For majority of our patients, there is a significant cosmetic improvement to the point that they no longer need to spend any out of pocket money to do further cosmetic Sclerotherapy.
For the minority who still would like us to do cosmetic therapy, the extend of veins needing treatment would certainly be less. Hence, it would be significantly easier and cheaper to treat. On the occasion that particular individuals have large varicosities or extensive spider/reticular veins, we can inject the veins during MOCA treatment at no extra cost to our patients.
“Our RFA procedure is performed as a medical necessity, as diagnosed by a trained vein specialist. It is not a direct treatment for spider veins or cosmetic issues, however the successful treatment of Chronic Vein Insufficiency, produces significant cosmetic improvements.”
