SCLEROTHERAPY

Leg Vein Treatment

Sclerotherapy (pronounced sklair-o-THAIR-uh-pee) is a medical procedure used since the 1930s to treat varicose and spider veins. It is considered one of the most effective treatments for removing unwanted leg veins. Sclerotherapy is indicated for uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter) and uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins. The procedure involves injecting a solution directly into a vein, causing the treated vein to seal shut and fade from view over time. The body then naturally resorbs the treated blood vessel (vein).

Downtime & Results

Following treatment, there may be some mild bruising and redness around the treatment area. It is recommended to wear a compression hose for 72 hours and avoid heavy exercise.

It may take up to six weeks to see full results, and multiple treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results. We will schedule a follow-up appointment six weeks after your initial appointment. At this time, we will assess your results and recommend further treatment if needed.
