Sclerotherapy Treatment Toronto

Results and Recovery

Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment, though it is suggested to have a friend or family member take you home post procedure in case you have any lasting discomfort in your legs. You may experience minor side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, irritation, or itching at the injection site.

Though strenuous exercise is not recommended for about a month afterwards, patients are encouraged to walk around to prevent the formation of any blood clots in your veins. For the same reason, doctors recommend wearing compression stockings for two or three months after the injectable treatment if you've received sclerotherapy in your legs. Dr. Yadav will be able to recommend specific compression stockings to you.

For several weeks after your spider vein procedure, avoid overly hot showers or baths, extended periods of sitting or standing, or excess sun exposure to support the healing process. Expect for the full results to take up to six months to appear. Many doctors recommend scheduling this spider vein treatment in the winter, allowing you to protect your skin as you recover, then reveal the results of your spider vein treatment once warmer weather hits.

Most patients only require one treatment, though multiple treatments (usually annually) may be needed to achieve optimal improvements to your spider veins.

When performed by a skilled and experienced provider like Dr. Yadav, this treatment can be quite effective in resolving the appearance of spider veins and small varicose veins. The results are permanent, though new spider veins are likely to appear as you age, which may cause you to seek further treatment.

Larger varicose veins cannot be treated with sclerotherapy injections; varicose veins typically require surgical vein removal known as a phlebectomy.

If you have more questions about whether or not sclerotherapy is right for you, we encourage you to book a consultation at Facet Dermatology, during which Dr. Yadav can assess your veins and determine the best course of treatment for your aesthetic goals.
