Effective Sclerotherapy Treatment
Sclerotherapy is a well-established and effective treatment for varicose and spider veins that have been in use for over a century. This non-surgical and non-invasive technique involves injecting a foam solution into the affected veins to reduce their appearance and alleviate symptoms such as swelling and burning. Our team is experienced in administering this treatment, which is typically the preferred option for most patients. However, some patients may have veins that are too small for sclerotherapy, in which case laser techniques may be a better option.
What Is Sclerotherapy and How Does It Work?
Sclerotherapy works by injecting a solution into the affected veins, which causes them to collapse and eventually fade away. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. This blocks the flow of blood through the vein, and over time, the vein turns into scar tissue that is absorbed by the body. Blood is then naturally rerouted through healthier veins, while the unsightly veins close to the skin’s surface are eliminated. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically requires no anesthesia or downtime, making it a popular treatment for varicose and spider veins.
What Can I Expect During Sclerotherapy Treatment?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a solution through the skin to treat varicose and spider veins. The treatment is quick, lasting anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the patient’s unique situation and the size of the area being treated. Our experienced team will make a series of small injections in the skin using ultra-fine needles, which may cause some minor stinging or cramping, but discomfort is generally mild. After the injection is complete, the treated area will be lightly massaged. Patients should note that the time and cost of the procedure may vary depending on their individual needs.
After receiving sclerotherapy treatment, patients can immediately return to their normal daily activities without any downtime. Compression socks or bandages will be worn for around three weeks following the treatment to reduce swelling and promote healing. Patients should avoid exposing the treated areas to direct sunlight. If additional treatment is needed, our team will schedule it for about four to six weeks after the initial procedure.
