Unsightly veins can be a source of self-consciousness and discomfort for many people. With sclerotherapy, you can embrace freedom from this common problem in a simple treatment that uses minimally invasive injections to close off problem spider veins and varicose veins. At Total Rejuvenation Medspa, we have knowledge, tools, and patient-centered care to help you rejuvenate your skin and confidence and we strive to deliver the best sclerotherapy Alpharetta has to offer.
Varicose and spider veins occur when valves inside blood vessels stop functioning, allowing blood to pool. Varicose veins are larger veins, often blue or purple, commonly in the legs. Spider veins are technically capillaries, smaller damaged blood vessels that have a web-like appearance and commonly occur on the legs or the face. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive and effective way to treat these unsightly veins and relieve associated symptoms like pain and swelling. A sclerosing agent, usually a saline solution, is injected into the affected veins. This causes the vein to collapse. Over time, the treated veins are absorbed by the body and fade away.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime. Reducing the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins enhances the look of the legs, face, or anywhere else affected by these problem veins. Beyond cosmetic improvements, sclerotherapy can alleviate symptoms associated with these vein conditions, such as pain, swelling, and discomfort. It’s a safe and proven treatment with a low risk of complications when administered by one of our skilled providers. Eliminating unsightly veins helps many people feel more comfortable in their skin, improving confidence and quality of life.
We are on hand to answer your questions about sclerotherapy and determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment. The consultation is an open dialogue where our Alpharetta sclerotherapy patients can get a realistic idea of their individual treatment and expected results.

Your provider will start by cleaning and sterilizing the treatment area in preparation for the injections. They inject a sclerosing solution directly into the affected veins using a fine needle. You may feel slightly stinging or burning, but most people tolerate the procedure very well. After the injections, compression stockings or bandages are applied to help compress the treated veins and promote their closure.
Recovery after sclerotherapy is generally mild, and most people can resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure. You may have mild discomfort, itching, or stinging where injections were administered immediately after your Alpharetta sclerotherapy treatment. This is normal and usually temporary. It's important to follow our aftercare instructions, which may include wearing compression garments. Engage in light physical activity, such as walking, to improve circulation in your legs, but avoid strenuous exercise for a few days after the procedure. Make sure to attend all scheduled follow-up appointments to ensure good healing and optimal results.
Sclerotherapy offers a minimally invasive and effective solution for cosmetic enhancement and relieving discomfort related to problematic veins. Most individuals experience a visible reduction in the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins. Over time, the treated veins gradually fade from view as the body absorbs them. Sclerotherapy improves the cosmetic appearance of the face or legs and can also alleviate associated symptoms such as pain, swelling, and discomfort. As the veins fade away, smoother, more evenly-toned skin is revealed, providing a big boost in self-confidence.
The number of sclerotherapy sessions needed can vary depending on the extent of your vein issues and your individual response to treatment. Some people may achieve their desired results with just one session, while others may require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart for optimal outcomes. During your initial consultation, we will provide a more accurate estimate of the sessions required based on your specific condition.
While sclerotherapy can significantly reduce the appearance of varicose and spider veins, new veins may develop over time due to various factors, such as genetics and lifestyle. Periodic maintenance sessions may be recommended to address these new veins and maintain your desired results.
