Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to shrink and eventually disappear. The solution used in sclerotherapy irritates the lining of the blood vessels, causing them to collapse and stick together. Over time, the treated veins are reabsorbed by the body and fade from view.
Sclerotherapy has been a popular and effective treatment for varicose veins and spider veins for many years. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in a doctor’s office without the need for anesthesia. The injections are typically administered using a very fine needle, and multiple injections may be required during a single treatment session.
The procedure is generally well-tolerated, although some patients may experience mild discomfort or cramping at the injection site. After the treatment, compression stockings or bandages are often recommended to be worn for a short period of time to help with healing and to support the treated veins.
Sclerotherapy has been shown to be highly effective in reducing the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins, with success rates ranging from 60% to 80% or higher. However, it is important to note that the treatment does not prevent the development of new varicose veins or address the underlying causes of vein problems. In some cases, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
While there are other treatment options available for varicose veins and spider veins, such as laser therapy and surgical interventions, sclerotherapy remains a popular choice
