How much can be done during one treatment?

Tammy B.  asked on  Apr 17, 2013

How much that can be done is determined by the number of varicosities and volume of fluid we can use in one treatment.

Q:

So for every treatment session, there is only 1 vial of solution that is used to treat as many spider veins as possible for both legs? Is there any way you can give us an idea of how many spider veins can be treated with each vial, considering the veins are 'small.' And are we required to buy the ted hose from you? Some of us already have our own. Thank you.

A J.  asked on  Apr 18, 2013

A:

Alia, The body can only handle a certain amount of medicine in one treatment, it is not necessarily "1 vial" of solution as the solution comes in many size vials. We will cover as much as we can with that amount of solution. You must wear compression hose for optimal results from your treatment. If you already have a pair, and the pair are the prescription grade required, you bring them in on your treatment day as you will wear these home from our office. Thank you for your great questions.

Q:

My spider veins are on the side of my knees and extend slightly above the knees. Will the knee high compression stocking be sufficient? Also, what prescription grade of compression stockings is required? If there is only a small area to be treated on both legs, will the vial will be used for both legs?

Kim S.  asked on  Apr 22, 2013

A:

Kim, We can only use up to 10CC's of medicine per treatment. Depending on the severity of the spider veins,it can be used for one or both legs. We also require a 20-30 grade compression hose at thigh height to maximize the efficiency of the medicine. Thanks!

Kathy V.  asked on  Apr 19, 2013

Q:

I have had sclero therapy and the doctor said he would have to increase the strength next time, will the appropriate dose of solution be used to collapse veins without having to keep coming back (my experience has been ...and you'll have to return again, and again). I do know that they may need additional tx however, I have questioned ethical practice given the above statement and the doctor doing both legs top to bottom then saying this rather than doing a small section to determine 'strength' necessary!

Tammy B.  asked on  Apr 17, 2013

A:

We always use the same strength that is approved by the FDA. Most people will need between 3-5 sessions for best results.
