Specialty physician complete packaged procedure per treatment per area.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to correct spider veins, small superficial blood vessels that appear red or blue in the skin.
They commonly occur on the legs but are also found on the face or other areas of the body.
One of several kinds of solutions called sclerosing solution is injected directly into the blood vessel with a very fine needle.
The solution irritates the lining of the vessel causing it to swell, stick together, and the blood to clot.
Over a period of weeks, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades, eventually becoming barely noticeable.
Price is per session.
Expect that two to six sclerotherapy sessions at one to two-month intervals may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
There is no downtime, although elastic bandages have to be worn for 3 to 5 days following the procedure.
Treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care.
`Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
