One powerful treatment for two kinds of vein problems

sclerotherapyWhen you have two types of vein conditions, you need a dual solution, and sclerotherapy fits the bill. This quick, minimally invasive, and highly effective procedure treats spider veins and smaller varicose veins.

During sclerotherapy, your physician:

Uses a tiny needle to inject a medication (sclerosant) directly into a vein or vein cluster; causing inflammation.
The vein closes & disappears over time.
Because the needle is so small, no anesthetic is typically necessary.

Benefits of sclerotherapy

  • Performed in our offices in less than one hour.
  • Safe, virtually painless treatment.
  • Can eliminate the aching, swelling, burning, and itching caused by smaller varicose veins.
  • No incisions, no scars.
  • A proficient technique to clean up small residual veins after ablation procedures.

After your sclerotherapy procedure

  • We’ll apply a compression stocking to the treated area to encourage the best possible cosmetic result.
  • You can get back to your normal activities the same day.
  • You may need a follow-up visit 2-3 weeks after your procedure to remove any trapped blood in the injected veins, which promotes faster vein resolution.
  • Any bruising (along with the treated veins) should clear in 6-8 weeks.
