Sclerotherapy

The Leading Injectable Treatment for Varicose Veins also Known as Spider Veins. 

What is Sclerotherapy & how does it work?

Sclerotherapy is the standard treatment for varicose and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution directly into the vein, which then causes the vein to scar and collapse, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.

Why is it done?

The procedure is usually done to improve the appearance of varicose and spider veins. It can also improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning or night cramps. It has been known to relive symptoms associated with enlarged veins and prevents further complications.

Is it safe? Are there any side effects?

Yes it is a safe procedure with very few complications. Some side effects may occur which includes bruising, swelling, raised red areas or small skin sores.

Does it hurt?
As with any injection you may experience some minor stinging or cramps when the need is inserted into the vein.

Are there any aftercare instructions?

After the procedure you rest on your back for 15-20 minutes, then the physician checks the injections sites for any immediate side effects. After that you’ll be asked to walk and move around to prevent the formation of blood clots. Post treatment, you’ll also be asked to wear compression stockings or bandages for about 3 weeks, to maintain compression on the treated veins. Most people return to their normal activities the same day. It is advised to minimize sun exposure to the treated areas during that time as it could lead to dark spots on your skin.

When will I see results?

If you were treated for small varicose veins or spider veins you can usually expect to see results in 3-6 weeks. Larger veins may require up to 3-4 months.
