Sclerotherapy is used for the treatment of leg veins and is a relatively simple procedure performed by injecting Asclera (polidocanol) solution into the vein, causing the vein to collapse. The byproducts are then naturally resorbed by the body. The leg is wrapped with an elastic wrap that must be worn for at least 24 hours. Compression hose are usually recommended for 1 week, sometimes longer. Most patients can expect a 60-90% improvement. For some patients, sclerotherapy may be combined with laser treatment, using the Excel V to further optimize the outcome.

QUESTION: WHAT IS EXCEL V?
Excel V is the most advanced aesthetic technology that combines two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate vascular concerns (redness, unsightly veins) and benign pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, discoloration) on the face and body.
QUESTION: WHAT DOES EXCEL V TREAT?
Excel V treats nearly twenty unique aesthetic and dermatologic skin concerns. The most common excel V treatments include rosacea, facial and leg veins, age/brown spots, and acne scars.
QUESTION: HOW DOES EXCEL V WORK?
Your treatment provider will select one of excel V’s two lasers and customize the treatment settings to target the color and depth of your skin concern. Most treatments are finished in just a few minutes.
QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EXCEL V?
For most procedures, excel V provides quick treatments with best results within just a few days. Most procedures only take 5 to 10 minutes but some may take up to 45 minutes.
QUESTION: HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
Most treatments require only one to two treatment sessions. The number of treatments will vary based on your condition. Your excel V provider will discuss a customized treatment plan during your consultation.
QUESTION: IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
excel V treatments can feel similar to a rubber band snapping against skin. Depending on the procedure, a cooled treatment tip will be in contact with the skin to protect and provide comfort to the area. A topical anesthetic may be available from your provider to improve your treatment experience.
QUESTION: ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS? What about downtime?
Redness and/or swelling can be expected following treatment and will resolve within a few days. Treated brown spots will darken and slough off within 3 to 6 days. For full face treatments, swelling will peak 24 to 48 hours post treatment and usually resolves within a few days. Typically, you can wear make-up and return to normal activities immediately. Your provider may recommend a topical steroid to reduce swelling as needed.
