Cosmetic Sclerotherapy in Utah County and Salt Lake County, UT

Spider veins can be unsightly and are often a source of personal discomfort. However, if you have them, you’re certainly not alone. Millions of people throughout the United States deal with spider or varicose veins at some point in their lives, and, in fact, it’s estimated that one in five people will get spider veins, with women being more susceptible than men.

Due to their unflattering nature, there have been many procedures developed to combat this condition, one of which is sclerotherapy. Here at The Vein Clinic, we offer cosmetic sclerotherapy treatment for people who would like to minimize the visual effects of these veins. 

What Is Cosmetic Sclerotherapy?

Cosmetic sclerotherapy is a procedure developed specifically for spider veins and reducing their visibility. Because they are a primarily visual issue, this treatment is aimed at improving one’s aesthetic and boosting an individual’s confidence through the elimination of their vein condition.

So how does it work? We’re glad you asked. A sclerotherapy procedure is simple. Using a small needle, we will inject a salt solution into the veins that are being treated. This sclerosant solution is designed to irritate the walls of the blood vessel, which will cause them to swell. Over time, it will cause the walls to turn into scar tissue, making them disappear from being visible on the skin. Some people may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but this will only last for a minute or two.

After treatment, patients will wear medical-grade compression stockings for one to three weeks, but they will still be able to return to their normal activities immediately. Strenuous activities should be avoided for this short period, though.


Sclerotherapy is an excellent procedure for many different reasons. Some of the general benefits of an expertly performed cosmetic sclerotherapy include:

  • Readily visible results
  • Immediate ability to resume typical activities
  • Procedure is complete in 15 minutes
  • Restored confidence
  • Affordable cost
  • Can marginally improve symptoms of venous insufficiency

These factors are often the reasons why an individual would choose cosmetic sclerotherapy over another procedure. Some patients have even noted that after the operation, they felt relief from built up pain and achiness in their legs as well, despite the procedure being primarily aesthetic in nature.

Sclerotherapy is also noted as one of the safest cosmetic alteration techniques. Because it is non-surgical and only requires an injection of a sclerosant solution, patients rarely experience any complications or side effects.
