About Cosmetic Vein Treatments

Three pairs of legsThe development of unsightly surface veins on the breasts and legs usually persist and eventually worsen over time. We believe at HOGUE CLINICS that every patient should have confidence in their skin appearance. We are committed to restoring lost confidence for our cosmetic vein patients using proven techniques such as injection sclerotherapy, the gold standard. The selected cosmetic vein treatment technique and method at HOGUE CLINICS will be based on the specifics of their underlying vein condition, the patient’s treatment goals, and our vein specialist’s professional recommendation.


All cosmetic vein treatments at HOGUE CLINICS are performed in a private clinic setting while awake, and with no downtime. Patients having their leg spider veins treated will need to bring compression stockings to wear afterwards. Patients having their breasts/breast cleavage veins treated will need to bring a tight fitting (compressive) sports bra to wear after the injection sclerotherapy session.

Advanced imaging techniques using a trans-illumination vein light is routinely used to improve safety and precision during cosmetic injection sclerotherapy vein treatment sessions.

Good Candidates

Good candidates for a cosmetic vein treatment are healthy individuals. If a medical leg vein condition co-exists, then it requires treatment first. This is because varicose veins on the legs are often responsible for giving rise to the skin surface spider veins. In a coexisting cosmetic and medical vein condition, the success of cosmetic vein treatment is often dependent on resolution and treatment of any underlying medical vein condition. The only way to determine whether one “is” or “is not” a good candidate for cosmetic vein treatment at HOGUE CLINICS is to have an onsite evaluation by our vein specialist.

  • Female patients should not have a vein treatment when they are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Cosmetic vein treatments often require multiple treatment sessions to achieve an optimal aesthetic outcome.
  • Patients should have realistic expectations of cosmetic vein treatments, since results may vary from individual to individual.

Treatment Options


Unwanted surface veins on the breasts, breast cleavage, and legs can be eliminated with injection sclerotherapy using the FDA-cleared sclerosant, polidocanol. Polidocanol was developed as a local anesthetic agent, so its use in sclerotherapy has an added benefit of numbing any pain associated with the sclerosis agent effects. To treat spider veins, polidocanol is injected into the targeted lumen of the surface vein. It works by damaging the vein’s endothelium, which are the cells lining the inside of the vascular tube. As a result, the targeted surface vein will eventually shrink, collapse, and disappear. Cosmetic injection sclerotherapy typically takes about 60 minutes to perform, especially if performed in a thorough and detailed manner. Once treated, a cosmetic vein patient may return to home with no downtime. Following treatment, patients are instructed to wear a compression garment over the vein treatment area for several days. This includes both breast and leg vein patients.

Results of Cosmetic Vein Treatments

The amount of time it takes to obtain visibly noticeable results after a cosmetic vein treatment varies according to the type of treatment. Smaller veins usually shrink, collapse, and disappear more quickly than larger ones.

Cosmetic Vein TreatmentVein treatments such as injection sclerotherapy result in gradual disappearance of the treated veins over time, usually after weeks to a few months. Often, multiple treatment sessions are needed to achieve near-complete elimination of the unwanted surface veins. Patience is often a key ingredient to successful cosmetic vein treatment outcomes.
