Sclerotherapy is a tried-and-true medical procedure designed to treat and eliminate spider veins and smaller varicose veins. During the procedure, a specialized solution or foam, known as a sclerosant, is injected into the affected veins, causing them to collapse, scar, and gradually fade from view as they’re reabsorbed by the body.
Sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice for spider veins and small varicose veins that may cause discomfort, burning, or cosmetic concerns. It offers both therapeutic relief from symptoms and aesthetic improvement by reducing the appearance of these unwanted veins.
Most patients find that sclerotherapy significantly reduces or eliminates the appearance and symptoms of treated veins. While multiple sessions might be required depending on the severity and number of veins, the procedure boasts high success rates, leaving patients with smoother, vein-free skin.
After the procedure, patients are usually advised to wear compression stockings or bandages for a few days to a couple of weeks, supporting the treated veins and enhancing healing. Mild side effects, such as bruising, itching, or minor pain, may occur but typically resolve within a few days. Patients are encouraged to walk and move around post-treatment but might be advised to avoid strenuous exercise and sun exposure for a certain period. Regular follow-ups ensure the best results and monitor any potential recurrence.
