How it Works

Sclerotherapy is a popular method for eliminating varicose veins and superficial telangiectasias (“spider veins”). A sclerosing agent is injected into the veins on the legs.

Procedure

The treatment involves multiple tiny injections of specific solution into the small veins on the legs. For each injection, there may be slight discomfort and cramping. Most people do not require pain relief for this treatment. The procedure takes approximately 30-45 minutes.

Results

The number of treatments required to improve the condition differs between individuals and depends on the extent of the spider veins present. One to three treatments are usually required and would ideally be spaced 4 weeks apart.

Downtime

There may be bruising in the treated area following the procedure. Individuals are required to wear specialized pressure stockings for up to 2 weeks following treatment.
