Question: I have read that the solution that treats varicose and spider veins can sometimes travel throughout the body. What are the implications of this and is this procedure safe?
Answer: The solution that is used to treat varicose veins is safe as long as relatively small doses are administered. Obviously you will want to see a well-experienced injector to make sure that you not only get the result that you want, but that it is performed in a safe manner. At Quintessa Medical Spa we only treat smaller spider veins through sclera therapy and if someone has large, knotty varicose veins we will recommend a vein specialist, most of whom perform laser catheterization for treatment of these larger vessels.
