Sclerotherapy is a nonsurgical, safe, and effective way to treat unattractive blood vessels that have become broken and stretched out, forming red or purple patterns along the legs. These blood vessels are referred to as varicose or spider veins. Sclerotherapy works by injecting a sclerosing solution into the veins that allow blood vessels to collapse and be absorbed into the body, thus reducing their appearance. Our board-certified plastic surgeons of Flowood, MS at The Face & Body Center highly recommend sclerotherapy if you're experiencing self-consciousness and embarrassment due to your large, noticeable veins. If you have tried other methods and have had little success, then we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us today to learn more about your treatment options.
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018
"Septoplasty/rhinoplasty: I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results. - January 2019 I was in a pretty bad car accident. Airbags didn’t deploy, so nose met steering wheel! I had two fractures in the nasal bone and my left side cartilage was pushed in, forming a “dent” on the outside of my nose. Fast forward a few months, I met with dr Adrian Smith to discuss putting my nose “back to normal”. He addressed all of my concerns and his demeanor just put me at ease about the whole situation. I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results."- R. / RealSelf / May 03, 2019
"Dr Manisundaram and his staff is the best"- H.N. / Google / May 02, 2019
"I went in today for my surgical consult and I was quite surprised how wonderful the facility was. It was professional but also homely. From the very beginning, the front desk staff was very friendly. Everyone I met was kind and in good spirits. They all had a great attitude. They laughed a lot which means they have a great sense of humor. I’m very nervous about my procedure but as soon as I met Dr. Smith and his staff, I was completely at ease. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions. He gave me plenty of time to ask them, too. He didn’t push me out the door. I was well-informed about the procedure, he listened to exactly what I wanted, and he was confident in his abilities to give me what I desire. Upon request, I looked through a picture portfolio of his work and I was very impressed. The young lady came in and photographed me (before pictures, I suppose) and I actually laughed most of the time. Taking my clothes off in front of strangers makes me very nervous, especially with my condition. But I laughed, she laughed with me, but still it was a very comfortable and professional environment. I even had more questions while in the billing department, or the office that takes the payment for your procedures, and they phoned the nurse’s desk and sent me back to ask more questions. Not once did I feel like I was a burden or “just another patient.” I’m very much comfortable moving forward with this operation with Dr. Smith!"- Z.1. / Google / Apr 27, 2019
"Dr. Smith is the most personable doctor I think I ever met. He should teach a class on bedside manner. He did an excellent job removing a cyst from my head. I think I'm in love!!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 19, 2019
You will be a good candidate if:
- You have large, unattractive varicose and spider veins
- You have tried other solutions with little success
- You have good overall health with no known diseases or illnesses
- You have realistic expectations for your procedure
What to Expect
Sclerotherapy will be performed in an outpatient setting. One of our team members will inject a chemical solution into each vein that you wish to have removed. This may produce some discomfort or stinging as it enters the vein. Once complete, you will be able to leave with compression garments on the treated leg(s) and return to your normal activities. You may experience some irritation, itching, or bruising in the injection site. It will usually take multiple sessions to reach the desired outcome.
After each session, you should see noticeable improvement within 2 – 3 weeks. It will usually take around six weeks to see the final results, which should produce great reduction or removal altogether of the veins being treated. Your results should be long lasting.
