Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. It involves the injection of a solution, known as a sclerosant, directly into the affected veins. The sclerosant irritates the lining of the veins, causing them to collapse and stick together. Over time, the collapsed veins are reabsorbed by the body and fade away.

Sclerotherapy is a procedure that is relatively quick and does not require anesthesia.

The steps involved in sclerotherapy are as follows:

Endovenous laser treatment for varicose leg veins

Preparation

The patient is positioned in a way that allows easy access to the veins being treated. The skin is cleaned and sterilized.

hlebologist examines a patient with varicose veins on his leg.

Injection

A fine needle is inserted into the targeted vein, and the sclerosant solution is injected. The number of injections required depends on the size and number of veins being treated.

Putting on compression garments

Post-treatment care

At the end of the treatment compression garments should be worn for 2 weeks after the procedure. The compression helps to keep the collapsed veins closed and prevents blood from flowing back into them. Walking and regular physical activity after is encouraged to promote blood circulation.

Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for spider veins, with positive success rates. It can improve the appearance of the treated veins and alleviate associated symptoms such as pain, swelling, and discomfort.

If you are considering sclerotherapy its important to have an assessment of the vein condition. Then you will be provided personalized recommendations for the best course of treatment. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results, especially for larger or more extensive veins.
