Spider veins, also called telangiectasia, may be caused by genetics, obesity, hormonal changes, certain medications, blood clots, and some medical conditions. They are usually red, purple, or blue and may become easily visible through the skin as they grow in branching patterns on the body. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George A. Toledo and his skilled aesthetic team offer sclerotherapy to reduce or eliminate the appearance of spider veins on the thighs and legs. A minimally invasive treatment with no required recovery period, sclerotherapy can help you get an even skin tone that you can show off in short shorts.

Sclerotherapy is best for patients who have small to medium blood vessels that are visible through the skin on their thighs and legs. Since spider veins are most prominent in these locations, patients may avoid wearing shorts, swimsuits, or other clothing that don't cover their spider veins. Sclerotherapy patients should be in good general health before their treatment to avoid complications. Patients should not be pregnant or have a history of blood clots.
Sclerotherapy can be performed in one of our treatment rooms quickly and without any anesthesia. The spider veins being treated will be identified, and the skin will be sanitized with alcohol. A fine-gauge needle will be inserted into the vein and the sclerosing solution will be applied. The needle will be removed and a bandage will be applied to the injection site to stop any minor bleeding. This process will be repeated until all spider veins have been treated.
What to Expect
After sclerotherapy, you will be able to leave our facility to resume normal activities. You may notice some redness, bruising, or swelling in the treated areas, but this should subside naturally. Compression garments may be recommended by Dr. Toledo to help blood circulation after your treatment for faster, better results. The treated veins should shrink, turn white, and then fade or disappear. You may need two or more treatments to achieve optimal results, but most patients are pleased with their improvements after one treatment.
