Golden Cosmetic Center is pleased to provide its patients with sclerotherapy treatment, with the aim of eliminating so-called varicose veins and spider veins. This involves injecting saline directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that disappears from view.
For this procedure, the Golden Cosmetic Center specialists will carefully evaluate the patient to determine if they are a candidate. Pregnant women are not eligible, nor should those who use birth control pills have the procedure. People who have had a blood clot in the past will have to undergo a medical evaluation that will determine their eligibility and will depend on the general health of the area needing treatment, as well as the reason for the clot. Veins that are potentially usable for future heart bypass surgery will generally not be considered for sclerotherapy, unless they are already deemed unusable.
