43 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Inland Empire board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Childers, has experience dealing with unattractive and unwanted spider and varicose veins, which can cause so much embarrassment for patients that they want to keep their legs hidden. However, at Sheer Beauty, our highly trained professionals are able to effectively diminish their appearance with vein injections, or sclerotherapy. With this treatment option, a chemical injection is carefully injected into the unwanted vein with a fine needle. Patients will begin to notice an improvement in the color and size of the vein within 2-3 weeks and full results can be achieved in 6 weeks. Receiving this treatment can greatly boost confidence and self-esteem.

During/After Surgery

Sclerotherapy is performed in an accredited surgical facility. During the procedure, patients will be given a local anesthetic in areas to diminish discomfort, although the patient should only feel a few small pricks. Recovery following vein treatment through sclerotherapy does not require any downtime or absence from the workplace. Most individuals can resume normal activities within 24 hours, and will wear a compression stocking for a few days while the legs heal. Patients will begin to see their veins fading within 2 to 3 weeks, with maximum results being revealed around 6 weeks after the treatment. 

Sclerotherapy FAQs

How Well Does It Work?

Sclerotherapy can improve the appearance of the legs by 70%, but it will not target every single vein. Additional treatments may be necessary for optimal results. Although many patients are very satisfied with the results from sclerotherapy, check with our team to clarify anticipated results and to see if the treatment is the right fit for you.

How About Other Treatments?

While Sclerotherapy is a popular and effective method to remove unattractive veins from the legs, it is not the only choice of treatment that men and women have to choose from. Alternatives include laser treatment, surgical stripping, and even some radiofrequency treatments. Consult our team to discover the optimal solution for your specific case.

Negative Side Effects?

There may be some skin irritation, slight itching, and some skin discoloration after treatment, but this is usually evident at the injection site and will subside in a few days. This procedure is non-invasive, and complications are very rare.

Time Between Treatments?

It is best to plan your treatments a couple of months apart. This gives the skin ample time to heal, as well as time or the treated veins to completely disintegrate.
