Telangiectatic matting after sclerotherapy - avoid PSI and PSH
Telangiectatic matting after sclerotherapy is well described and these very small (smallest of the capillaries) are very fragile and the literature shows that they will resorb on their own within 12 months. Telangiectatic matting also occurs after topical laser treatment for spider and reticular veins.
Minimize post sclerotherapy inflammation (PSI) by avoiding sun exposure and using proper SPF protection with Spectrase. Post sclerotherapy hyperpigmentation can be reduced with Scleroquin.
