Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of unsightly varicose veins. The Sclerotherapy treatment is a chemical solution that is injected into the veins to make them collapse and disappear. Sclerotherapy is performed over multiple sessions (10-40 veins can be treated in one session) which are typically scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. The Sclerotherapy procedure is virtually painless–some patients describe some discomfort during the small need pricks. After the treatment patients are advised to wear support stockings and encouraged to walk or exercise moderately to help speed up recovery. Patients may notice some slight slewing, minor bruising, mild soreness, itchiness, or redness.
Once removed those treated varicose veins are gone for good, but the treatment does not prevent new ones from forming.
