What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for improving the appearance of varicose and spider veins on the legs. It is also performed to treat symptoms caused by these conditions, such as aching, swelling and burning. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical solution directly into the varicose or spider vein.
How long does sclerotherapy last?
This sclerotherapy treatment will create permanent changes in the appearance of your veins. After we treat your damaged veins, they will become scar tissue and gradually dissolve over time. As a result, these veins will not require future treatment.
How painful is sclerotherapy?
The slight pinch of the needle is likely all you'll feel during your treatment. Some patients do experience some discomfort or cramping during the procedure or in the few minutes following, but these symptoms typically subside quickly. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities the same day.
