Spider Vein Treatment in Spring Hill and Franklin, TN

At Trident Vein Center, we understand that the presence of spider veins can have a significant impact on self-image. Likewise, we also know the journey toward achieving vein-free skin is unique for everyone. That is why we are committed to providing high-quality and compassionate care to each patient. One of the most effective treatments we offer for spider veins is sclerotherapy.

Surface Sclerotherapy

Varicose vein disease and specifically spider veins are most commonly treated by Sclerotherapy. The treatment involves injecting a ‘sclerosant’ solution directly into the vein. The goal of treatment is irreversible venous closure (fibrotic occlusion) followed by absorption of the vein. Venous blood is then redirected from the abnormal vessel to healthy veins.

As a result, leg discomfort and cosmetic appearance improve. Both ‘liquid’ and ‘foam’ formulations are used. The liquid injection is used for smaller, surface veins. Foam injection has increased potency and thus is used to treat larger veins. In addition, foam can be observed under ultrasound, in real time, for better precision.

The Sclerotherapy Procedure at Trident Vein Center

The sclerotherapy procedure is straightforward and requires no anesthesia. Here's what you can expect:

Consultation: Before treatment, you will visit our center for a consultation with our vein specialist, Dr. Cunningham. He will assess your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and possibly perform an ultrasound to determine if this treatment is the most appropriate option for your needs.

Treatment: During sclerotherapy treatment, you will be positioned on your back with your legs slightly elevated. Dr. Cunningham will then clean the treatment area with an antiseptic solution. A special solution is then injected into the vein, which causes swelling in the walls, allowing them to stick together and become sealed. This disrupts blood flow and results in a diminished vein appearance after a few weeks. You may experience some discomfort and cramping for one to two minutes, especially when more prominent veins are injected. However, every effort is made to help ensure your comfort for the duration of the treatment.

Post-Treatment Care: After the procedure, compression stockings or bandages may be applied to the treated areas to maintain pressure on the veins, minimize swelling, and enhance healing. You'll be encouraged to walk and move around to prevent the formation of blood clots.

Follow-Up: You will have a follow-up visit to assess the success of the treatment and decide if additional sessions are needed.

Benefits of Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy has numerous benefits, including:

  • Non-surgical treatment with no need for anesthesia
  • Minimal downtime
  • Relief from discomfort and pain associated with varicose and spider veins
  • Improvement in the appearance of the skin

There are some reasons why you might not be a suitable candidate for this treatment, like if you are pregnant, have an allergy to sclerosant, have active clotting or bleeding episodes and immobility.

Is Sclerotherapy Right for You?

Generally, sclerotherapy is an ideal choice for those with bothersome spider and varicose veins. However, patients must also be in good health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. During your consultation at Trident Vein Center, we will help determine if sclerotherapy is the right option for you based on a comprehensive evaluation of your vein health.
