Our vein care treatments are used to reduce the appearance of varicose and spider veins. Our treatment options are medically proven techniques that are both safe and effective. They require little to no downtime afterwards.
Here at Maï Body, we use sclerotherapy and compression therapy as treatment options for varicose and spider veins.
We use different vein treatments to address concerns such as:
- Varicose veins of varying sizes
- Spider veins (even the tiniest spider veins)
- Chronically swollen legs
- Leg pain, aching, or heaviness
- Itching, burning, or restless legs
How Sclerotherapy Works
Sclerotherapy is used for the treatment of unsightly or painful varicose or spider veins. A tiny needle is used to inject medication into the vein causing it to shut down and be absorbed by the body.
Typically, 2-6 sessions are required. The procedure itself only takes about 20-30 minutes each visit. Most people return to their normal routines immediately with spider vein treatments or within 48 hours post varicose vein treatment. Treated veins typically take anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 months to resolve, depending on their size.
The majority of people who have Sclerotherapy performed will see very good improvement with about 80% resolution of their varicose and spider veins. The veins that are treated typically remain closed, however new veins may arise in the same or adjacent area. Clients will often return for varicose or spider treatments once every 2-3 years or later.
How Compression Therapy Works
Compression socks is a non-invasive treatment option that can be used on its own, or in addition to sclerotherapy. They can help by compensating for the weak valves in your legs. They stimulate the muscles in your legs to push the blood more efficiently back towards your heart. This improves circulation and helps prevent the circulatory back flow.
Compression socks can help to:
- Prevent DVT or “Economy Class Syndrome” while travelling
- Improve the effectiveness of your vein treatment by 25% or more
- Improve overall circulation
- Prevent symptoms of aching, heavy, tired and throbbing legs
- Prevent the recurrence of further varicose and spider veins
