Sclerotherapy, offered at Epiphany Medspa & Wellness in Fullerton, CA, is a highly effective procedure designed to address and eliminate superficial veins known as spider and varicose veins. These veins, characterized by their twisted and lumpy appearance, often arise due to incompetent valves, increased pressure, and weakened membrane walls. While these veins are generally harmless, they can lead to cosmetic concerns, making many individuals self-conscious. Beyond the aesthetic implications, Sclerotherapy also addresses common symptoms of these veins, such as pain, swelling, itching, and even ulceration. The procedure begins with the application of a numbing spray followed by injecting a liquid sclerosant into the affected veins. This medication disrupts the vein’s cellular membrane, causing the vein to collapse and rerouting the blood to the central circulation.
Recognized for its efficiency and minimal invasiveness, Sclerotherapy is a preferred alternative to traditional methods like vein stripping, ensuring reduced downtime and quicker recovery. At Epiphany Medspa & Wellness, the treatment is typically completed within 15 minutes per area, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately post-procedure. Suppose you’re considering addressing your spider or varicose veins. In that case, we invite you to book an appointment with our experts at Epiphany Medspa & Wellness to determine if Sclerotherapy is the right solution for you.
