What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is available at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics for men and women with visible vascular issues, like spider veins. As a preferred treatment to the invasive vein procedures of the past, sclerotherapy is known for its gentle processes to eliminate unwanted surface veins. You will not want to conceal your skin after your undesirable veins disappear. All sclerotherapy procedures are performed personally by our board-certified general surgeon, Dr. Matthew Lynch. When you are injected with sclerotherapy, the tiny amount of sclerosing solution will irritate the vein enough to cause it to collapse. Then, your body's natural processes will take care of the rest. Using ultrasound-guided techniques, Dr. Lynch can safely and effectively eliminate your aesthetically unpleasing veins with minimal side effects and no scarring. Find out more in a confidential consultation in our Peoria, AZ office. Book your appointment today to see if you qualify for sclerotherapy.

What are the benefits of sclerotherapy?
Visible spider veins can be an aesthetic concern for both men and women. While they are not necessarily harmful to your health, they can be an embarrassment and make you feel self-conscious. Many people avoid wearing shorts or bathing suits because of unsightly veins. Sometimes spider veins make it harder to go about your daily activities and enjoy time with your friends and family.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment that can reduce these veins without surgery or invasive procedures. Our specialized treatment causes the vein to collapse and be naturally be absorbed by your body. In addition, sclerotherapy requires no downtime and causes minimal side effects. You can resume your regular activities after treatment.
Sclerotherapy Treatment Details
Sclerotherapy is performed in a private treatment room within our Peoria, AZ office. Dr. Lynch will numb the area with a local anesthetic for your comfort. He will be guided by an ultrasound, which will be visible on a monitor. Dr. Lynch will gently inject the vein(s) with the sclerosing solution. Sclerotherapy should cause the vein to collapse and close off. Your body will do the rest of the work by eliminating the damaged vein(s) through your natural waste system. We will put a bandage on the injection site. You will also need to wear compression stockings for about two weeks. Dr. Lynch will want to see how your body responded to the treatment at your follow-up appointment. You may need additional injections for the best results.
What TO Expect
Sclerotherapy does a wonderful job of getting rid of your spider veins and other vascular lesions. We want to remind you that this treatment does not prevent new veins from appearing on your skin in the future. This treatment only takes care of the veins injected, and it may require additional sclerotherapy sessions when more veins emerge.
In the meantime, you need to take care of yourself after your sclerotherapy session. You can comfortably recover at home. It is very important to wear your compression stockings during your recovery period. We also ask that you avoid taking hot baths, drinking alcohol, or performing strenuous exercises for a few days. Light exercise and daily walks are advised.
