Veins often become prominent on the skin's surface as people age, most commonly in the legs and face. While this isn't a severe condition, it can make you self-conscious about your appearance and interfere with your day-to-day life. Sclerotherapy can eliminate spider and varicose veins, allowing you to feel more confident in your appearance and live happier.
Clear out unsightly veins
We work to remove unwanted veinson the body through sclerotherapy, which uses chemical injections to eliminate unsightly spider veins and varicose veins safely.
Sclerotherapy is a safe way to eliminate unwanted veins without surgery, so you can get back to enjoying your active lifestyle. During treatment, your provider will inject a chemical solution into your vein that causes it to collapse and eventually disappear over time. This is ideal for people who want to avoid surgery or take care of their vein issues quickly and affordably. Atlanta sclerotherapy expert Dr. Kerolus uses laser therapy to treat delicate veins on the face. Contact our office today if you're interested in learning more about vein therapy! We look forward to helping you start on your path toward clear, healthy skin.
One reason sclerotherapy is so popular is that it's non-invasive.
In general, anyone who has varicose veins can be a good candidate for sclerotherapy. Younger patients are better candidates for sclerotherapy since more youthful skin heals more quickly and more elastic tissue. Veins present in the face can be treated with laser therapy by Dr. Julia Kerolus.
Rejuvenate Your Body
Prior to your procedure for Sclerotherapy Atlanta Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kerolus will discuss with you which veins you want treated. The next step is a numbing cream for your legs. After that, your provider will insert a tiny needle into each vein and inject a fluid that causes it to collapse and shrink away from your skin over time.
Keep Veins Away From Seeing Eyes
Recovery from sclerotherapy is usually straightforward. If you have no complications, you should be able to return to most activities within one to two days. Walking and even light exercise can be started sooner if desired. The majority of our Atlanta sclerotherapy patients are back to work immediately. There may be some mild swelling or bruising for a few weeks after treatment, but it's nothing noticeable without close inspection.
Take Care of the Skin You're In
As you would expect, sclerotherapy's effects are long-lasting. Results are typically effective for about a year but can last up to two years or longer. Additionally, it is possible to have more than one treatment if necessary. For example, if you need veins in your ankles treated after suffering from a bout of varicose veins on your legs, We can perform both treatments at once. Most patients only require one treatment; however, those who suffer from chronic vein issues may require multiple treatments over time.
Spider and varicose veins do not have to be permanent. We want to ensure that you are comfortable and confident in your body, and by eliminating problem areas with sclerotherapy, you can feel better about yourself. So schedule your Atlanta appointment with Kerolus Facial Plastic Surgery today!
Before sclerotherapy, a numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort. Most patients describe a slight stinging sensation similar to that experienced during a simple blood draw. The most common side effect following treatment is temporary bruising in and around treated veins, which can be treated easily using compression stockings and ice packs.
All procedures have risks, and sclerotherapy is no exception. Before pursuing treatment, it's essential to consider both short-term and long-term risks involved in treating unwanted veins. Although infrequent, sclerotherapy can cause serious side effects such as ulcers and poor circulation. We want you to be informed about your options and are happy to discuss any concerns you may have.
Taking care of yourself is about more than just annual check-ups and eating right. You also want to preserve your ability to look and feel your best. If you feel like you have an area that you want to improve through plastic surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kerolus. She will make sure you find the right treatment for your best results.
