Medical Sclerotherapy Treatment (MST)
Medical Sclerotherapy Treatment (MST) is for the bulging blue/purple reticular veins and red spider veins at the skin’s surface.
During this treatment, a sclerosing solution is injected through micro-needles into the spider veins.
The treated vein segment gradually decreases in size over several weeks. Do not expect these veins to go away in one treatment. To obtain the best results, we suggest a series of multiple sclerotherapy treatment sessions depending on the severity of the veins.
After your sclerotherapy, it is normal for your treated areas to appear bruised for a few weeks. In fact they may look worse after the first treatment and then begin to fade and look better over time.
You may resume normal activities immediately after treatment, with the exception of sun exposure and use of tanning products. You must keep your legs covered and limit exposure to sunlight for 1 week. Avoid submerging in water for 1 week (bathtubs, hot tubs, pools, beaches, pedicures). A 20-30mmHg compression stocking should be worn for 5-7 days post MST for better results.
This procedure takes 30 minutes.
