What Is Sclerotherapy?

Many patients suffer from unwanted visible veins. Most visible veins appear on the thighs and calves although they can appear on many areas of the body. There are many causes for visible veins such as age, genetics, trauma, or occupation. Sclerotherapy is a procedure that effectively treats varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy has been used throughout the world since the 1930s and remains the primary effective treatment for varicose and spider veins.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat varicose and spider veins. The unwanted veins are injected with a sclerosant solution through a very fine needle, which causes the veins to eventually collapse and become absorbed into the bloodstream.

Sclerotherapy is performed with the aid of ultrasound to ensure precise results. Anesthesia is not needed for sclerotherapy, during which patients experience only a mild burning sensation. The number of injections per session varies based on the number and length of the unwanted veins.

  • After sclerotherapy, most patients can return to work and other daily activities the very same day.
  • Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for 7 – 10 days.
  • Compression bandages may need to be worn for a few days after the procedure.
  • Some patients may experience mild bruising following sclerotherapy. This usually subsides within a few days.

Had the most amazing hydrafacial with Sam. She spent so much time with me and included way more extras than in hydrafacials I’ve had in the past. I left glowing and super relaxed! Thank you!

About Us
What's the difference between sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments?

Sclerotherapy injects a special solution into the vein to cause it to become smaller and fade away. Laser vein removal is nonsurgical since light waves are sent to the vein — so it collapses and gets processed by the body. Sclerotherapy is typically better for medium to larger varicose veins and spider veins (more than three millimeters), whereas laser vein removal is advised for smaller vessels, typically ones in the facial region.

Can I get sclerotherapy on my hands and face?

Sclerotherapy may enhance the look of spider veins, vascular blemishes, diseased blood vessels, and varicose veins on your hands and face. In your consultation, Dr. Busso will examine your troublesome areas and decide if sclerotherapy may be performed to treat the vein effectively. If our team thinks that sclerotherapy is not a beneficial or safe option, we will go over your choices, such as laser procedures.

How long should I wear compression garments after sclerotherapy?

Dr. Busso or a member of his team will talk to you regarding the length of time you should keep compression stockings on following sclerotherapy. The compression stockings are designed to help your circulation so the vein remains sealed and to minimize bruising. Generally, you need to continue wearing the compression garment after your recovery whenever you are sitting for a long time, such as on longer car rides or on airplanes.
