What to Expect
The procedure does not require anesthesia and can be performed in the office. The number of total sessions needed depends on the amount of vessels and length of time the patient has had them.
After your procedure, you will be asked to wear compression to the injection sites for 24 hours if the treated area is on the legs. After this time it is highly recommended that you wear medical support hose for the next two weeks. You will be advised against activities that can strain the affected area, such as squatting or lifting heavy loads. You may expect some slight bruising or discoloration while healing, and the vessels may take up to four to six weeks to disappear. It is highly recommended that you start in late winter or early spring, as you must stay out of the sun while healing. You will need to come in for a follow-up appointment to check on the healing process.
How Much Do Spider Vein Treatments Cost?
The price of spider vein treatments is usually based on the number of injections required and the types of veins being treated. Generally, sclerotherapy treatments are considered to be cosmetic in nature. Because of this, their cost is not typically covered by health insurance providers. In cases where a vein disease is the cause of prominent veins, coverage may be available.
