Sclerotherapy

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is often considered the treatment of choice for small varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting an FDA Approved solution called Asclera directly into the vein causing it to scar. This forces the blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and gradually fades.

What are the expected results?

Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take 6-8 weeks to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed. Conservatively, there is about a 50-75% improvement each time, most patients require 2-4 treatments for full results.

What is the recovery like?

There is little to no downtime, so patients are very happy with their ability to go back to work the same day. Patients should wear compression stocking and avoid water (pools, hot tubs) for seven days following the procedure. A follow-up visit within two weeks is advised.

Are there any side effects?

Some side effects that may occur at the site of the injection include:
  • Bruising
  • Raised red areas
  • Small skin sores
  • Darkened skin in the form of lines or spots
  • Multiple tiny red blood vessels
