Spider Vein Treatment Charlotte, NC with Sclerotherapy
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy Charlotte is a minimally invasive skin treatment to diminish or erase the appearance of spider veins. It is done with a series of injections into the veins that collapses them making them vanish or be much less visible. At Carolina Age Management Institute, Dr. Giordano injects Asclera™ into spider veins as well as reticular veins.
Spider Vein Treatment Charlotte Benefits
As a treatment to diminish or erase spider and reticular veins, it offers the following benefits:
- Quick treatment
- Safe and effective treatment
- Immediate and permanent results
- No lasting pain or discomfort
How Does Sclerotherapy Charlotte Work?
The treatment area is cleaned and possibly numbed with a topical anesthetic. After that, Asclera™ is injected into the veins causing them to scar and collapse. Once this happens, the blood is rerouted through other veins not as close to the skin. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Preparation involves avoiding blood thinning medications and supplements, such as aspirin, ibuprofen and Vitamin E, for about one week prior to the treatment. If you are taking any of these, Dr. Giordano will discuss the appropriate plan of action for you.

Following therapy, patients may return to their normal activities including exercise to promote blood flow and speedy recovery. Patients may be asked to wear compression socks for two to three days following treatment to ensure treatment is efficacious and maximized.
The results are visible following the treatment with the disappearance of the veins in the few weeks following the treatment. It may take several treatments to greatly reduce the appearance or erase spider and reticular veins with these results being permanent. Mild bruising at the site of injection may occur.
