Spider Veins

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies,


So yestersday I had Sclerotherphy for my spider veins. I inheritated this from my mom and started to notice them when I was pregnant with my son. They weren't bad but I noticed them, I have very fair skin so everything shows. I also wanted nice looking legs for my DW.


Basically my dermotologist injected the unwanted veins with a sclerosing solution which causes the target vein to immediately shrink, and then dissolve over a period of weeks as the body naturally absorbs the treated vein. I'm not going to lie it was uncomfortable. After the injection it feels like a bad leg cramp.


Wanted to see if anyone else has had this done? What was the outcome?

I also got it when I was pregnant with my daughter. I'm considering on having it done one day. How long did the cramping last? and how long did the procedure take? I had no idea that it would be uncomfortable.

This is something that makes me so angry. I am 25 and have never been pregnant, or even overweight and I have these all over my legs...well at least it seems like it. I try so hard to stay in shape, yet in the summer, I barely wear shorts or skirts because of these things.


I just had sclerotherapy tested on me recently. The doctor injected a few just to make sure it would work on me (free of charge) and I am scheduled to go back in a month to do the full procedure. The whole thing is going to cost me about $250. I have them behind both of my knees, and some on my outer thighs. I hate them.


It was definitely uncomfortable. I think the worst part for me, though, is the tape they put on afterward. If you go, get some spanx to put on to keep pressure on the areas so they don't have to put the tape on. I will definitely be taking a pair when I get the full procedure done.


Good luck ladies!

the entire procedure as about 10 minutes.The cramping only lasted a few minutes and it goes away. Afterwards my legs were fine but I had to keep them elevated. I had about 11 injections on my right leg and three on my left leg. For me the little veins hurt the most and the big ones weren't as bad.


After the injections they use cotton and tape to stop any bleeding (it's not bad, like a prick). Then they wrap your legs in this tape which is like an ace bandage but sticky and itchy. I have VERY sensitive skin so this might have been part of the problem. I ripped it off last in the middle of the night because it drove me crazy.


So today I'm going to go some spanx (thanks for the tip Katyko). Good Luck

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
