Are Your Legs Ready for Shorts Season? With Sclerotherapy, They Are!

Ready to put away your winter wardrobe and break out the shorts? We know we are so ready for warmer weather here at Boise Image! In addition to changing out your clothes, spring cleaning around the house, and maybe even planting a garden, now is the best time to get your body ready for the season change as well. And we’re ready to help you do that with sclerotherapy!

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Safe and effective sclerotherapy is the best treatment available to eliminate the appearance of spider and varicose veins. While it can be used on other areas, we most commonly treat veins on the legs. This procedure preps your legs for the warmer weather ahead, so you no longer have to worry about unsightly veins when you wear shorts or swimwear. 

Sclerotherapy uses a micro-needle to inject medications that cause the lining of the affected veins to become irritated and swell shut. This re-routes blood flow to other veins. Since the treated veins are no longer being used, which is then reabsorbed by the body. It not only treats the cosmetic concerns of spider and varicose veins, but the physical symptoms too. Aches, cramps, swelling, and pains disappear along with the veins after treatment.

Because varicose and spider veins rarely go away on their own, sclerotherapy is necessary to completely eliminate them. The procedure lasts less than an hour, and there is no downtime afterward. You can immediately return to work or play while the treatment works over the next few weeks to reduce vein visibility. In as little as two sessions, treated veins may permanently disappear, though optimal results may take three to five visits.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Sclerotherapy?

Nearly everyone with varicose and / or spider veins is an ideal candidate, other than women who are pregnant or nursing. Those who have had blood clots in the past may be eligible, depending on a thorough review of your medical history. During a consultation, our vascular specialist will determine whether sclerotherapy is the best option for treating your veins.
