What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy was developed over 75 years ago and today is one of the most common treatments for spider and varicose veins. During the treatment, a sclerosing agent is injected into the vein through a tiny needle. The solution, once injected into the vein, replaces the blood in the vein and causes irritation and corrosion to the walls of the vessels. The body then begins the natural healing process and the vein begins to decompose, shrink and eventually disappear.
How many treatments will it take?
Several treatments may be required to achieve the optimum result. In most cases, three treatments will achieve the desired outcome.
What results will I see?
Most patients realize dramatic improvement in their leg vein condition. The veins gradually disappear over the course of treatment. The optimal result is typically observed between one and four months after the final treatment.
