Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy

As your valves weaken, varicose veins appear on your skin. Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that treats spider veins and smaller varicose veins. A salt solution is injected into the varicose or spider veins, which causes them to shrink and fade. This minimally invasive treatment allows the healthy veins to continue the flow of fluids as your body reabsorbs the sealed veins.

The Science

There are many Sclerotherapy techniques to choose from, which allows a customized treatment plan tailored for you. The treatment area size and where it’s at on your body determine the type of solution chosen for your procedure. Smaller veins are treated with liquid sclerotherapy, while more prominent veins are treated with a foam solution. Sclerotherapy may be combined with other treatments to provide you with the most optimal results.

This treatment is recommended for patients who have visible spider and varicose veins. The solutions used in the procedure make all small and large veins disappear from within your skin for a more appealing appearance. It’s also great at relieving tension and mild aches.

The Treatment

Your Sclerotherapy treatment usually takes less than an hour to perform. During the procedure, you’ll be comfortably lying on your back. The treatment area is cleansed with mild soap, and the salt solution is carefully injected into the veins.

You may get mild stinging and irritation as the solution is injected into the vein. A cooling ointment is put on the treatment area and makes the procedure comfortable to combat these symptoms. The injected skin area is massaged to improve the solution’s flow. Ultrasound imaging ensures the solution properly goes into the vein.
