Are there steps to take before sclerotherapy injections for spider veins? Los Angeles spider vein treatment

Are there any steps to take before sclerotherapy for spider veins? 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins on the body and legs.  Treatment of spider veins is usually performed after an initial consultation for spider and varicose veins, during which time you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and anticipated results with Dr. Karamanoukian.  Before treatment, patients should 1) Avoid blood thinning medications such aspirin, coumadin, and ibuprofen; 2) Avoid undue direct and indirect sun damage; 3) Apply a hydroquinone-based skin lightener for at least one week to the areas of injection.
