What to Expect

Before, During, and After Sclerotherapy in Houston.

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

Your sclerotherapy in Houston begins with a one-on-one consultation, during which we'll discuss your unique concerns and desired results. This consultation allows us to truly get to know you and craft a completely customized treatment plan that works best for you.

2. Approve Your Treatment Plan.

Houston sclerotherapy experts Drs. Downey and Bullocks will collaborate on the ideal treatment recommendations to tackle your varicose and spider veins. 

3. Getting Sclerotherapy.

Dr. Downey or Dr. Bullocks will expertly inject your spider or varicose veins with a sclerosing agent. This closes off the entrance to the vein, which redirects the blood to healthy veins. Stubborn veins may also be treated by minimally invasive ablation. You may feel a slight burning sensation during the treatment, but this goes away within minutes. After your sclerotherapy treatment, the varicose or spider veins close off entirely and are no longer visible!

4. Follow Up.

After the sclerotherapy Houston patients can schedule follow-up sclerotherapy injections. Although most patients can see the effects of sclerotherapy after just one session, Drs. Downey and Bullocks typically recommend up to 5 sessions to maximum results.
