Spider Vein Treatment

Sclerotherapy

The most common spider vein treatment involves the injection of a solution into each affected vein, causing the vein to collapse and fade over time.

What questions should I ask my plastic surgeon about spider vein treatment?

Use this checklist as a guide during your spider vein treatment consultation:

  • Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
  • Were you trained specifically in the field of plastic surgery?
  • How many years of plastic surgery training have you had?
  • How many procedures of this type have you performed?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • Where and how will you perform my procedure?
  • How long of a recovery period can I expect, and what kind of help will I need during my recovery?
  • What are the risks and complications associated with my procedure?
  • How are complications handled?
  • What are my options if I am dissatisfied with the cosmetic outcome of my spider vein treatment?
  • Do you have before-and-after photos I can look at for each procedure and what results are reasonable for me?
