What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is perhaps the most widely known treatment for addressing varicose and spider veins. Practiced since 1920’s, sclerotherapy involves the administration of a specialized, liquid chemical solution to swell and collapse vascular lesions. The body redirects blood flow to healthier veins and works to gradually fade the treated spider or varicose veins from view.
What can I expect during sclerotherapy?
The length of your sclerotherapy session will depend on the number and extent of spider veins and varicose veins being treated. Your sclerotherapy session will begin with a member of our team cleaning the targeted area. A very fine needle will be carefully inserted into the vascular lesion, administering the specialized solution therein. Once the formula has been administered, a compress will be applied to the area. Patients may be required to wear a compression stocking or special bandage for a specified period of time following their appointment.
How much downtime will I need to set aside following my treatment?
Patients who receive sclerotherapy to address spider veins or varicose veins will not be required to set aside downtime following their treatment. You may resume your regular activities immediately following your appointment!
