What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that can effectively treat varicose or spider veins found in the legs. A sodium solution is injected directly into the vein which agitates the lining of the blood vessel. As a result, the treated veins will redirect the blood flow to healthier veins, causing the varicose or spider veins to collapse and fade with time as they are reabsorbed into nearby tissue.
Why Is Sclerotherapy Performed?
- For aesthetic purposes to clear up the undesired veins
In addition, Sclerotherapy can also help with conditions related to the varicose or spider veins such as:
- Night cramps
What Can I Expect of the Sclerotherapy Procedure?
Sclerotherapy does not typically require anesthesia. The procedure can typically take less than an hour. During the procedure, patients will lie on their backs with their legs marginally elevated. The treated area will be cleaned with a rubbing alcohol prior to a fine needle with the solution inserted into the skin accordingly. The solution will begin to cause the lining of the vein to swell, transmitting the flow of blood elsewhere. The treated veins will become scar tissue and deteriorate with time. The number of injections for optimal effect will depend on the size of the veins that are being treated.
