Is Sclerotherapy Safe? Here’s the Truth.

You should never neglect your safety for the sake of getting your dream skin, and our aesthetic specialists at AesthetiCare would never steer you in that direction. In fact, we don’t offer a single procedure or treatment that hasn’t been proven to be safe, effective options. 

So when people ask us whether or not sclerotherapy is safe, our answer is yes! Over the years, we’ve found that sclerotherapy works for many people to remove stubborn veins and the symptoms that come with them. 

Read on to learn more.

What is sclerotherapy?

Oftentimes, when clients understand the treatment, it’s easier to break any fears they have around getting sclerotherapy. So what exactly is it? 

Sclerotherapy is a procedure that has been used for decades and involves using a tiny and incredibly precise needle to inject an FDA-approved solution (called “sclerosing agents”) into spider veins. 

As it spreads through the vein, the solution causes vein walls to swell, stick together, and seal shut. The spider vein then becomes scar tissue that the body will reabsorb. After it’s all said and done, veins begin to fade and permanently disappear

How exactly is sclerotherapy safe?

Well first, the solution itself has been approved by the FDA. If you don’t know, the FDA only approves products that have been proven multiple times to work without causing major harm to someone. 

Second, sclerotherapy doesn’t come with any down time, meaning it’s not invasive enough to require you to take off work or lie in bed all day. Keep in mind that the more invasive a procedure is, the higher the risk it comes with. Plus, your provider should give you detailed aftercare instructions to make sure recovery runs smoothly. 

Lastly, side effects are very minimal. During the injections, you may feel slight pain from the needle or a burning sensation from the solution. However, once you’re done, the only major thing you should factor in is vein swelling (and that only means the treatment is working!).

Jessica did a great job always checking with me on how I was feeling. She was always concerned about how I was doing and doing the best job she could!

I was given the proper guidance and steps to take to make my skin better. I truly love the honesty, care, and time taken to help find solutions to make my skin better. The before and after pictures truly show a difference on how well the procedure works.
