Spider Vein Treatment Face & Legs Utah
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is the reduction and removal of unsightly varicose veins in the hands, legs, arms, and other parts of the body. Your Layton area cosmetic surgeon or nurse practitioner will inject a sclerosant into varicose blood vessels that diminishes their inner lining. The vessel will eventually turn into scar tissue and fade away.
How Do Varicose Veins Form?
Blood vessels in the legs or hands become weakened over time as they try to pump blood up toward the heart. As one-way blood vessel valves lose their strength, blood begins to build up and the veins start to bulge. Varicose veins appear as lumpy green or purple vein enlargements along the affected area.
Spider veins often accompany varicose veins as smaller veins that have become enlarged as red or blue lines in the skin. Along with varicose veins, spider veins can indicate venous insufficiency, a chronic swelling condition in the legs that could lead to blood clots or skin ulceration. Fortunately, sclerotherapy in Layton from Surface Med Spa can diminish varicose veins and spider veins.

Who is a good candidate for sclerotherapy or spider vein treatment?
When compression socks or other treatments won’t work to control venous insufficiency, we recommend sclerotherapy or spider vein treatment. Treatment is not recommended for those with a history of blood clots or obesity. We can also treat patients who would like to remove superficial spider veins or smaller varicose veins to improve their overall appearance.
What is the recovery time for sclerotherapy?
Patients can leave Surface Med Spa’s medical offices on the same day of treatment after a sclerotherapy procedure in Layton or Park City. It is recommended that they wear compression stalkings for 10 days after treatment to improve the healing process.
What are the benefits of sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy in Layton improves venous blood flow and mitigates swelling from blood build-up in the affected area. It also helps patients who want clearer, more natural skin on their legs and hands.
