Duration of Results

After treatment, veins generally fade within a few weeks, with full results visible in a month or more. Some veins may require multiple treatments for optimal results. The effects of Sclerotherapy can be long-lasting, providing a significant improvement in the appearance of spider veins and reticular veins

Attaining Your Ideal Results

Sclerotherapy not only improves the visual appearance of spider veins but also alleviates symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning, and night cramps. This treatment is especially beneficial for individuals who experience discomfort or self-consciousness due to prominent veins​​.

What is Sclerotherapy?

The procedure involves injecting a solution, typically a salt solution, into the affected veins. This solution irritates the vein lining, causing it to swell, scar, and eventually fade. Sclerotherapy is usually quick, taking less than an hour, and is performed in the healthcare provider’s office.

A Natural Look and Feel

Sclerotherapy offers a natural and seamless improvement in the appearance of treated veins. Most patients experience significant fading of spider veins and reticular veins, contributing to a more youthful and refreshed look of the legs.

Your Personal Treatment Plan

Each Sclerotherapy session is tailored to the individual’s needs, considering the number and size of veins being treated. Our specialists at Oakville Plastic Surgery provide personalized care to ensure the best possible results​​.

Quick and Visible Results

Patients can typically see an improvement in treated veins within weeks, with larger veins taking slightly longer to respond. Most patients can return to their regular activities on the same day as the treatment​​.

What to Expect

The treatment is straightforward, with most patients experiencing only minor discomfort. Side effects may include bruising, raised red areas, and small skin sores, which typically resolve within days to weeks. It’s advisable to avoid sun exposure on treated areas for two weeks pre- and post-treatment to prevent skin discoloration​​. It is also recommended to wear compression stockings immediately after your treatment for 48 hours and up to 2 weeks after treatment as this increases the effectiveness of the treatment by 50%.
