Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution causes them to collapse and over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. It is offered for larger spider veins and some varicose veins. A combination of both Laser Vein Treatments and Sclerotherapy may be suggested for optimal result.
The solution is injected through a very fine needle directly into the vein. At this point, you may experience mild discomfort and cramping for one to two minutes, especially when larger veins are injected. The procedure itself takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
The number of veins injected in one session depends on the size and location of the veins and comfort of the client. Multiple treatments may be necessary and a medical grade compression garment is recommended for optimal results.
Sclerotherapy is performed by our physicians and requires a complimentary consultation prior to scheduling your appointment. Call 920.380.9990 to schedule.
