Let’s take a closer look at what sclerotherapy is and how it can help you.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment that can be used to address a variety of vein issues such as varicose veins, spider veins and facial veins. The procedure uses a special solution that works to close off unwanted veins while allowing healthy ones to remain open. As the treated vein closes up and fades away over time, your circulation will improve and any discomfort or swelling associated with your vein issue will be relieved.

The Benefits of Sclerotherapy

One of the biggest benefits of sclerotherapy is that it can be performed quickly and easily with minimal downtime required. During the actual procedure itself, tiny injections are made into the vein using a very thin needle—typically without any anesthesia needed—and most treatments can be completed in under 30 minutes. Additionally, you should begin to see results within one to three months after your initial treatment session.
 Sclerotherapy offers real results for people dealing with unsightly or uncomfortable vein problems. Not only does it reduce the appearance of existing varicose or spider veins, but it also helps prevent new ones from forming in the future as well! In fact, many patients report being able to wear shorts or skirts without feeling self-conscious after just one session of sclerotherapy!
