Our trusted board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa see many patients wanting to eliminate red and purple spider and varicose veins. At our practice in Delray Beach, FL we offer sclerotherapy, which is a technique using an injection of medical-grade sclerosing solution into an unsightly vein to make it collapse and be absorbed by the body. The vein will not return, yet the treatment will not prevent new veins from popping up in the future. Even though spider veins are small, they can branch out into many different directions on the leg. Varicose veins are darker and appear much larger on the leg. Some patients report that their varicose veins are painful. We want to restore your skin to a youthful, healthy appearance without these surface veins with sclerotherapy.
If you need several sclerotherapy treatments to see positive results, we may recommend scheduling follow-up appointments several weeks apart. This will give your spider and varicose veins time to fade away, and you will see how your body responds to the treatment. Also, the injector will work only on live veins to save you from unnecessary injections.
"What an amazing team!! Dr. Goodwin, Kathy and Angela made a very stressful life event involving my double mastectomy and reconstruction turn from a nightmare into a dream. Very supportive with great bedside manner. This truly talented surgeon has your best interests in mind always."- H.V. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2019

"4 months ago, Dr. Goodwin performed neck lipo to reduce genetic "neck fullness/double chin." I'm an early 50's male and I got a very good result. Dr. G encouraged me to have general anesthesia for optimal results. He said this allows him to be more thorough. He never tried to sell me on chin or cheek procedures. He's a straight talker who doesn't over promise. I talked with one other Dr. who was $500 cheaper, but his "after" photos were not so good. I now feel much better about the way I look."- D.I. / Healthgrades / Feb 01, 2019
"Male - Neck Lipo (No thermi) Happy With Results From Dr. Goodwin - Since high school I had a prominent pouch of fat under my chin. It did not really get worse or better with weight gain or loss. Last year, when I began talking to Dr's about possibly correcting this problem, one Dr. told me I needed to have neck and lower face lift ($13,000). The same Dr. gave me a 7K quote on doing my eyes ( I had not asked him about my eyes). Dr. G and 3 other Dr.s said that since my skin was tight, a face lift was not recommended. I brought up the idea of having a chin implant with Dr. G, but he disagreed, and said he thought I would do fine with just neck lipo. He was not my cheapest option, but he's a confident, plainspoken man. I feel lucky that I found him and made the choice to have him do the surgery."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 31, 2019

Patients with spider and varicose veins on their legs and thighs should schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. During the appointment, you will be evaluated to see if sclerotherapy is appropriate in your case. If our sclerotherapy treatment is not the right method for the removal of your spider and varicose veins, there are other alternatives such as laser treatments, surgical stripping, and radiofrequency treatments that may be the right answer for your condition.
What to Expect
Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic treatment that is performed as an outpatient procedure in our AAAASF-accredited surgical facility. During your private sclerotherapy treatment session in one of our minor procedure rooms, a sclerosing chemical solution will be injected (using a fine needle) into each spider or varicose vein you want to eliminate. Your plastic surgeon will use pressure during the injection. You may feel slight pain or a cramping sensation during the injection. Once your injection session is complete, you will be asked to wear compression garments on the treated area for as long it is recommended by your plastic surgeon. Compression garments will apply continuous pressure on the medicated veins and will speed up the process of collapsing the vein. You should see noticeable improvements in 2 – 3 weeks and the vein should be gone within 6 weeks.
Once you are home recovering, you may see common side effects of the sclerotherapy treatment. Patients report to having some
Once you are home recovering, you may see common side effects of the sclerotherapy treatment. Patients report to having someskin irritation, itching, and bruising at the injection site. If you feel like you are experiencing abnormal side effects, please call our office as a precaution. It is also very important to watch for allergic reactions to the sclerosing solution and blood clots. Severe complications will need to be reported and treated immediately.
