Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure that provides a permanent solution to spider veins. A dermatologist or surgeon uses a fine needle to inject a saltwater or sclerosing agent solution into the vein, which causes the vein to close. Over the next few weeks, the body will absorb the vein, erasing its appearance from the skin.
With Sclerotherapy Orange County patients can expect the following benefits:
At our practice in Orange County sclerotherapy ideal candidates can relate to the following:
There is typically no downtime required after sclerotherapy, and patients can resume normal activity immediately. In some cases, patients will be asked to wear support stockings to keep treated veins closed and help reduce bruising. Some patients may experience the following side effects: temporary skin discoloration, skin reddening, bruising, and, in rare cases, blisters. Side effects usually improve after a couple of weeks.
After sclerotherapy, there will be a visible reduction in the number of spider veins present, with roughly fifty to seventy percent of the treated vessels permanently gone. Not all veins respond to treatment, and since spider veins are a product of the aging process, follow-up treatment is often required.
Embrace Comfort & Convenience
Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri, a distinguished plastic surgeon in Santa Ana, California, strongly advocates for patient comfort and safety during all procedures. His comprehensive approach to patient care includes using local anesthesia for various surgical procedures.
Local anesthesia is a type of anesthetic used to numb a specific area of the body where a surgical procedure will be performed. It allows the patient to remain awake and comfortable while avoiding the potential risks and side effects associated with general anesthesia. In Dr. Jazayeri's hands, an array of procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia, often leading to quicker recovery times and lower complication rates. These procedures include many facelifts, liposuctions, neck lifts, Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs), mini tummy tuck and, in certain cases, even breast and arm lift.
By taking advantage of local anesthesia's potential, Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri strives to make cosmetic and reconstructive surgery more accessible, comfortable, and patient-centered. His commitment to this safe anesthesia approach in Santa Ana, California, signals a new era in plastic surgery where patient comfort and safety are at the forefront.
