What is 

Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins


Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that reduces spider veins—those small, twisted blood vessels visible under your skin. Utilizing a special solution injected directly into the veins, this treatment causes them to collapse and eventually fade away, revealing clearer, vein-free skin.

How does it work?

During your treatment, our experienced dermatologists at Atlantic Skin Care inject a Health Canada-approved sclerosing agent into the targeted veins. This solution irritates the vein lining, causing them to collapse and stick together. The treated veins fade over time, leaving your legs looking smoother and more youthful.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

1. Consultation

Schedule a consultation with our experienced medical professionals to discuss your goals and assess your suitability for sclerotherapy.

2. Avoid Blood Thinners

If possible, please avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements, such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and fish oil, for one week prior to your treatment. Our team will carefully review your prescription medications prior to your treatment.

3. Wear Comfortable Clothing

Choose loose, comfortable clothes and bring a pair of shorts to your appointment, ensuring easy access to the treatment area. 

Post-Treatment Care

Avoid Flying  or Prolonged Car or Train Travel

Please avoid flying or prolonged car or train travel for 24 hours following this procedure to avoid complications and ensure optimal results. 

Avoid Sun Exposure

Protect the treated area from direct sunlight for 1 month to prevent pigmentation changes.

Skin Care

Avoid products containing ASA or NSAIDs for 24 hours after treatment, to reduce the risk of bleeding.

Follow-Up Appointments

Please feel free to schedule a follow-up appointment to address any concerns.
