Who doesn’t want to feel confident in the way they look? Issues such as spider veins can stand in the way of feeling your best in certain types of clothing. Rather than feel the need to cover up, we suggest seeing what a simple, effective sclerotherapy procedure can do for you.

Spider veins tend to be more common in women, although men may also notice clusters of red, blue, and purple web-like veins on the ankles or legs. When spider veins develop in men, they are less noticeable due to being covered by leg hair. For women, these networks of tiny veins can be visible and embarrassing. There are several reasons for their presence:

  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal imbalances (which is one reason they may develop during pregnancy)
  • Weight fluctuations
  • A more sedentary lifestyle in which sitting or standing occurs for long stretches at a time

What sclerotherapy can do for you

Sclerotherapy is a longstanding procedure that has been proven successful in the treatment of spider veins. Performed by a trained, experienced clinician, this treatment can permanently eliminate veins within a short time and, usually, with one treatment. While newer modalities have been developed in recent years, sclerotherapy continues to be one of the most affordable and efficient approaches to care.


How it works

The minimally-invasive procedure affects problematic veins with a sclerosing agent. The solution is injected into veins using a tiny needle and causes painless irritation to their inner walls. Over several days, veins gradually collapse and disappear, and blood flow is redirected to healthy vessels.

Performed in our comfortable Portland office, the sclerotherapy procedure can take less than half an hour, depending on the number of veins we are treating. The sclerosing medication is strategically inserted for the best results and optimal comfort. Following the procedure, minor redness and itching may be experienced. Slight bruising may also be noticed, but should not be painful. These effects fade over several days.

We are pleased to offer this treatment, which has a long history of success in the treatment of spider veins. While unsightly veins are more of a cosmetic problem than a health concern, they can be frustrating.

You deserve to feel good about your appearance from head to toe. Learn more about sclerotherapy at Thrive. Call (503) 928-6505.
