What is the average cost of sclerotherapy?


Sclerotherapy is also known as spider vein treatment, and there are a couple of factors that are included in the cost of sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy treatment costs include:

– Post-treatment garments
– Surgeon’s fee

The average cost of sclerotherapy (spider vein treatment) is around $413, this average cost is only a part of the entire price of sclerotherapy. However, the cost does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities, as well as other related expenses. You will need to contact Colorado Laser and Vein to determine what the final fee would be for sclerotherapy treatment at our clinic.

While the average cost is per treatment, it does not include the number of treatments necessary as well as the method of treatment that is chosen. Many health insurance plans will not cover sclerotherapy (spider vein treatment), as it is considered a cosmetic procedure. Carefully review your insurance plan in case they do allow for the cost of sclerotherapy treatments. Many clinics will also provide financing plans for many of their patients who are wanting sclerotherapy services.

Is sclerotherapy injection painful?


Sclerotherapy (spider vein therapy) uses an injection with a special chemical known as sclerosant directly into the varicose vein which will damage and scar the inside lining of the specific vein. This is what will cause the vein to close.

During the procedure, the leg that is getting the treatment will be elevated to drain any blood. The special chemical sclerosant will be injected into the specific varicose vein, the entire procedure will take on average around 5 to 30 minutes total, depending on how many varicose veins you want to be treated, and how large the varicose veins are.

The initial injection may be painful for some, as the chemical that is injected can cause a sensation of cramping or burning for the first few minutes of the treatment within the area. Depending on the number of varicose veins you want to be treated, and where they are located on the legs, the patient may feel a few sensations throughout the session.

After the injection, pressure will be applied over the vein to prevent any blood from returning when you stand up. Many doctors will recommend compression stockings be worn for several days up to a few weeks to maintain that pressure.

How long does it take to recover from sclerotherapy?


The fantastic thing about sclerotherapy is there is no recovery period necessary after the initial treatment. All patients will be able to walk immediately after the treatment, and it is recommended to walk instead of rest to help heal the area faster. Your doctor will recommend you avoid any strenuous activities or exercise for at least 1 week after the sclerotherapy treatment but will recommend you walk every day for a minimum of 10 days. It is best if you do not sit or lay down for long periods of time unless it is to sleep at night, this is to ensure the area that was treated heals and the vein that was closed doesn’t have any issues.

We recommend you try to avoid exposing your legs to the sun for at least the first 2 weeks following the initial treatment. You will need to wear compression stockings for a small period of time after the sclerotherapy treatment.

How many sclerotherapy treatments will I need?


Sclerotherapy is known as one of the best treatment options available to remove any unwanted spider veins from legs. On average, we often recommend to our patients that they receive an average of 4 treatment sessions to notice desirable results. However, each individual patient may be recommended a different amount, depending on how big, and how many varicose veins the patient wants to be treated.
