Spider Vein Injection Sclerotherapy

Spider Vein Injection Sclerotherapy

A common problem affecting a large portion of the population, spider veins can drive some people to avoid wearing shorts or any other fashion that would expose this bothersome problem. The veins are responsible for the flow of blood back to the heart. When weak vein valves allow some blood to seep back into the vein, spider veins are formed. They appear in red and bluish clusters that appear to be in the pattern of a spider’s web.

The cause of spider veins is unknown, but it is estimated that more than 60 percent of our population will suffer from this medical problem at some point in their lives. Because spider veins usually appear in highly visible areas on the body such as the thighs, calves, and ankles, many people come to our office seeking ways to hide them.

At Copeland Cosmetic Surgery, we offer sclerotherapy, a highly effective treatment for spider veins. During sclerotherapy, a solution is injected into the vein causing it to thicken and eventually close. Once the flow of blood in the vein is stopped, the vein turns to scar tissue and eventually fades. Sclerotherapy has roughly a 60 to 90 percent efficacy rate.

Contact Copeland Cosmetic Surgery in St. Peters for more information on sclerotherapy.
