Sclerotherapy in Flowood, MS
Ready to get started?Contact Us
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.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is best for patients who have small or medium blood vessels that can be seen through the skin of their body or face. Typically, these spider veins are most visible on the thighs and lower legs, so they may avoid wearing swimsuits, shorts, or other clothing that do not cover their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy must be in good general health before their appointment to prevent complications. Patients should not have a history of blood clots or be pregnant.
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.

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...
I Had a Great Experience and I Highly Recommend Dr. Brantley and His Amazing Staff! - I had a "mommy makeover" done by Dr. Brantley in October of 2021. He performed a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast lift with implants. Dr. Brantley and his entire staff are very kind, courteous, and professional. They answered all of my questions in person, by phone, and email (I had a lot) thoroughly and never acted as if I was being bothersome. Dr. Brantley went over the entire procedure during our consultation and again before he performed the surgery. The surgery went exactly as planned. I had liposuction done to my stomach and back. I had a tummy tuck, and I had a breast lift with implants. I was around a C 1/2 before the surgery. We discussed just doing a lift without implants but Ms. Macala showed me pictures of a lift with implants and without. I decided the lift looks better WITH the implants. I only went up about a half size to a D because I am a smaller person and I wanted them to look more natural. The liposuction to my stomach area and the tummy tuck were extremely successful. The liposuction to my back wasn't as noticeable. There is still a little fat in my back area. However I'm working on that with diet and exercise. The recovery process was comparable to a 2nd or 3rd C-section. I say that because I have had 2 C-sections and my 1st was a breeze. I was pretty sore for around a week, but I could manage ok after about 3 days. I haven't had any complications during recovery. Everything looks very good. I do have some scaring even after using the recommended scar gel. My abdomen scars from the tummy tuck are pretty noticeable. But honestly no one sees those except my husband anyways. And they do look better if I have been tanning. The only thing that seems out of the ordinary with my experience is that the dissolvable stitches in my abdomen have not dissolved yet. They are still very much intact. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Brantley and am happy with the decision to have the mommy makeup surgery. I love my results!!
Dr. Smith is great....
Have been able to wear clothes that I could never wear before - I had a breast reduction a few months ago and it was the best decision I have ever made! I went years with chronic back and neck pain and I always had to buy my clothes one or two sizes bigger just to fit my breasts. My breasts had always been my biggest insecurity. When I decided to go through with having a breast reduction, I heard so many great things about Dr. Brantley. After my consultation with him, I had no doubts about having the surgery. He was amazing with providing me with all the information I would need and making sure I was comfortable. Since the surgery, I have had no pain! I have also been able to wear clothes that I could never wear before with my large breasts. Having a breast reduction completely changed my life. I am so thankful for Dr. Brantley and his team for being so great throughout the process and giving me my confidence back!
Very very wonderful staff, they greet you with all smiles, everyone listens to the patient and ask questions. They are very caring, loving and gives patients the most positive vibe ever. Dr. Adrian Smith, is so amazing. If I could drive to Flowood twice a week, I would, he's just that amazing and loving, caring, and respectful. He does awesome work. He has recently done my breast reduction, and oh my God, I have not had a neck nor back pain since. I will definitely be going back for my tummy tuck. I recommend Dr. Adrian Smith to anyone. Go check him out. Please he and the staff has a ten star from me.. 💜💜💜💜
