The Orlando/Ocoee, Kissimmee, and The Villages surgeons at Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center offer veinlite sclerotherapy to treat spider veins for patients who may not be responsive to other forms of sclerotherapy. Here’s what to expect from this treatment.
Similar to other forms of sclerotherapy, this procedure involves a physician injecting a sclerosing agent into the affected vein. This agent is often made of concentrated saline although other solutions are available. This concentrated solution causes the vein to fade away. The vein itself is not removed, but the appearance is greatly diminished. Patients may experience stinging during the procedure, but the discomfort is minimal.
Veinlite sclerotherapy uses veinlite to target the feeder vessels that are causing the spider veins. Unlike ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, which targets deeper veins, veinlite sclerotherapy is ideal for veins closer to the skin’s surface. These feeder vessels, typically blue-green in color, can be located 4-8 inches away from the spider vein and aren’t visible to the human eye. It’s important that the physician properly targets these feeder vessels to prevent reoccurrence of the spider vein.
