“Sclerotherapy (or sclerosis) is a method of treating varicose veins, spider veins, and telangiectasias.”
Dr Delphine Pagès
Ultimately, spider veins, and telangiectasias are the small venules that appear on the legs.
In fact, this treatment consists of intravenous injections of sclerosing product, with create a “clot” attached to the vascular wall, which will gradually subside, leading to the disappearance of the diseased vein (i.e. vein which no longer plays its role in venous return).
Note that the process is long : the visible effect of a session will be at its maximum only after 3-4 weeks.
As the venous disease is hereditary and progressive, it is therefore necessary to do a regular “maintenance” of the treatment , for example annual.
DURATION OF CARE
The session lasts 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the surface to be treated.
I could see that the spider veins disappear after 3 – 4 weeks.
In cure : several sessions are generally necessary, spaced from 1 to 4 weeks.
In maintenance : in general 1 to 2 sessions every year.
I use for this treatment : AETOXISCLEROL®
