Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment

Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective way to get rid of spider and small varicose veins. The fact that it is only involves an injectable procedure makes this treatment the preferred option for many patients. When compared to other surgical and non-surgical vein removal procedures, sclerotherapy is also the most affordable one. You will get an estimate as to what this entire procedure would cost you, during your initial consultation.

At the time of your initial consultation, your treatment provider will educate you regarding the procedure so that you could make an informed decision. In addition to that, you should clear all of your doubts and concerns from your own side as well before the treatment starts.

Board certified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide sclerotherapy to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding communities.

Treatment Sessions

Depending on the severity of the problem, the cost of sclerotherapy can vary between two patients at the same facility. For instance, some patients will only need 1 or 2 sessions while for a severe case, more than 2 sessions might be essential.

For the removal of stubborn veins, your surgeon may sometimes have to re-treat the targeted area. If the situation demands, another technique may have to be performed in conjunction with sclerotherapy, thereby impacting the price tag.
