How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?

Are the spider veins on your legs getting you down?  There’s good news,  sclerotherapy can close them down and improve the appearance of your legs.   Sclerotherapy is considered the most effective method for treating spider veins.  But how much does sclerotherapy cost?

Spider Veins

Spider veins or telangiectasias are broken blood vessels that lie close to the surface of the skin.  They are typically red, purple, or blue in color.

Sclerotherapy For Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment in which a saline solution is used to reduce the appearance of spider veins.  The solution is injected into the abnormal vein and irritates the walls of the vessel, causing it to collapse.  The treated vein will eventually become scar tissue and is absorbed by the body in the weeks following treatment.

How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?

According to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a single sclerotherapy treatment is $343.00.  However, the price may vary depending on the extent of the condition.  It generally takes more saline solution to treat veins that are severe, and this will likely push up the cost of sclerotherapy.   Most people need multiple treatments to get optimal results.

The location of the practice and the cost of post-treatment garments will also impact the final cost of sclerotherapy. 

Will Insurance Cover the Cost Of Sclerotherapy?

Most insurance companies do not cover the cost of sclerotherapy, because it is considered a cosmetic procedure.

If you are considering treatment for your spider veins its best to consult with a vein specialist to determine if you are a good candidate.
