What is Sclerotherapy?

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure to treat and remove spider veins. Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels located close to the surface of the skin that have a red or bluish color. Although, they can appear anywhere on the body, spider veins typically occur on the legs and face. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a special solution into the unwanted veins.

What Sclerosing Solution Do We Use?
Our patients are typically treated with a Glycerin/Lidocaine with Epinephrine solution although, other solutions may be used.
How Does It Work?
The solution works by damaging the cells that line the blood vessels. The damaged vessels fade slowly over the next 2-4 weeks as the body’s immune system reacts to and removes the damaged areas.
How Soon Will The Vessels Disappear?
Each vessel may require 2-4 injection sessions with 70-90% fading on average. However, every patient is different and some may require more sessions. They usually disappear over a period of 2 weeks to 3 months.
How Often Are Treatments Done & Are They Painful?
Treatments are done at 3-4 week intervals.  Most patients tolerate the treatment well and only report minimal discomfort. There is little or no pain reported in the postoperative period.
