Sclerotherapy

Have any of you girls had sclerotherapy (it's to get rid of visible veins) and if so how many treatments did you have and did it work? Thanks

depends on the size of the vessel to be injected. Sometimes one time will do te trick, other times it takes a few attempts. A consultation should give you a better idea of what your own treatment needs would be.

Well I have had 2 treatments on my legs and they are definitely better but not nearly as good as I would have thought they would be by now. Each treatment is $300 so I really don't know if it is worth trying again. Have you done it? was it successful?

I too have been looking into having it done to remove the spider veins on my legs. My sister has had her first session and was quite dissappointed with the results. I'm also looking into IPL and any other options, but I think with all of them you need to have it done a few times to get good results?

I had one treatment back in 2003 on the back of my legs & thighs. It definitely did work for me, but within 12-18 months I had new spider veins appearing. At this point I'm learning to live with them. I'm so pale that they're very visible when I wear shorts so last summer I started using some self tanner and that helped to make them less noticeable.

I had 6 months worth of treatments done (2 years in a row) on some serious varicose veins I had ... also on a few spider veins. It worked wonders. It was painful during the injections, but the veins were gone by the time I left the Dr.'s office. I have A LOT of experience with this, let me know if you have any questions!

My insurance is going to cover my varicose vein treatment. I have to get the VNUS ablation procedure where they go in and treat it with lasers.

I was just telling DH this is what I want next! Mine aren't raised, but I've had them since my early 20s and I'm in my early 30s now. I want this done, but I don't want to waste my money either.

I had a consult regarding my ugly vein-y legs. I was told that some varicose veins are too deep for sclerotherapy to work properly. So, my options are 1) Stripping, 2) following up with a laser in the other areas.

Anyone had their veins stripped? How painful was the procedure? How long did the bruising last?

I had 6 treatments. For the majority of the viens, it worked. However, I still have one "patch" I didn't get rid of. I actually got tired of going and wearing the compression hose for 4 days.

FYI....viens are hereditary. They do not come crossing your legs or other stuff. At least that is what the doctor told me.

Insurance does pay for some treatments. I think it depends on your doctor's report/insurance company.

My doctor(s) have all told me the same. Veins are hereditary...nothing you do causes them...except being alive

Smile

I am a nurse and I actually buy Tromboject from online pharmacies for about $120.00 and I inject them myself. I got rid of all of my spider veins and it def beats paying $300.00 for one treatment. Alos, spider veins are hereditary and I know that more will come back but once they do I can get rid of them again.
