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 are the risks of spider vein treatment?

The decision to have spider vein treatment is extremely personal. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of spider vein treatment are acceptable.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks.

The risks include:

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Change in skin sensation
  • Infection
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Ulceration
  • Scarring
  • Persistent pain

These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It's important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.
