Vein Treatments in Cary and Fayetteville, NC
If you have facial veins or spider veins visible elsewhere on the body, you can find relief with vein treatments at Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics. We specialize in vein treatment techniques, offering our services to the men and women living in Fayetteville, Lumberton, Cary and the neighboring communities of North Carolina.
What is Available for Spider Vein Treatment?
Generally a harmless condition, spider veins are veins that are visible on the skin’s surface, appearing as clusters of blue or red vessels, most commonly on the face and legs. These begin to form due to improper blood flow, which causes veins to enlarge. Although they rarely cause any health complications, the cosmetic presence of spider veins can be undesirable. At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we offer sclerotherapy and laser leg vein treatment to diminish your spider veins.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective procedure that uses a small, fine needle to treat spider and varicose veins of the lower legs. A medication called Asclera® is injected into the vein and works by damaging the cells lining the inside of the blood vessel. As a result, the vein fades within a few weeks.
This minimally invasive treatment can show results in as little as one treatment. Spider veins and varicose veins form because of improper blood flow, so patients don’t need to worry about losing vital blood flow as a result of sclerotherapy. The body has an incredible number of vein networks, so there are no complications regarding blood supply or blood flow as a result of sclerotherapy.
How is Sclerotherapy Performed?
Sclerotherapy is performed by injecting a special solution into the visible veins. This solution damages the walls of the vessel, causing blood to clot and interrupt blood flow. With blood no longer flowing through the treated veins, they will gradually fade away. These injections are typically well-tolerated, but we offer a topical anesthetic to patients to help minimize any discomfort during treatment. A single sclerotherapy session only takes about 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas to be treated.
Is There Downtime After Sclerotherapy?
There is no downtime or recovery following a sclerotherapy treatment, and patients are typically able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. In fact, we encourage patients to walk and remain active following their appointment to facilitate healthy blood flow.
When Will I See Results from Sclerotherapy?
After sclerotherapy, your spider veins will gradually fade from view in the following weeks. Although patients may see results in as little as a few days, more significant results won’t be visible until about two weeks after treatment. In some cases, patients may need multiple treatments to achieve their desired results.
What is Laser Leg Vein Treatment?
With laser leg vein treatment, you can diminish the appearance of leg veins without the pain and downtime of surgery. Laser light targets and constructs the blood vessels in the leg that cause spider veins without harming the surrounding skin.
