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
"I've only ever been here for botox but today I had my earlobes worked on by Dr.Schnitt! I used to gauge my ears in my teenage years and it's been a major regret in my adult years lol! I'm SO happy with how they look already. What I also love is that they let you choose your Pandora station, so I had the Bob Marley station on love this place! Staff is always so nice."- K.B. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2020
"Amazing Experience in an Emergency and After - Dr. Jack consulted with my family about scarring from tracheotomy when they had to decide to move me from intubation to a trach. Shd assured them she could fix it. She did the revision and no one notices it now even though it’s in the center of my neck."- C. / RealSelf / Dec 16, 2019
"Dr Schnitt is an absolute perfectionist and we had a wonderful experience with him. I would highly recommend him for your surgical needs. He's very hands on with the care of his patients and we really appreciated that. Check out his YouTube channel!"- C.S. / Yelp / Dec 01, 2019
"I cannot wait to have them repierced - It was a pleasure to have Dr. Megan Jack take care of my horribly thinning earlobes. I needed to completely have her rebuild my earlobes because recently a stud earring with the back fell through my original piercing. The other piercings had deteriorated so both earlobes were done. Dr Jack is very professional but extremely caring. Now that the lobes are fixed I can not wait to have them re pierced. Dr.Jack will be able to do that in about 5 weeks. My new earlobes look amazing.ESL"- E. / RealSelf / Nov 22, 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 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.
