Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s):

How Does it Work?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and spider veins. During the procedure, a sclerosing agent is injected into the vein causing damage to the inner lining.  This causes the vein to close off and eventually disappear.

What can I expect during the treatment?

During your Sclerotherapy treatment, a very fine needle with the sclerosing agent is injected directly into the vein. You may feel slight pinch from the needle or a slight burning sensation, this is normal.  The procedure usually takes up to 30-45 minutes depending on the number of veins being treated.  There is no downtime, so you can return to your usual activities right away, but you will need to wear compression stockings immediately after treatment.

What are the results?

The majority of the treated veins will show a significant improvement after several weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months.

Is it Safe?

Yes! Some people may experience an initial period of redness, swelling or bruising, which is always temporary and dissipates over time.

Are there contraindication?

Pregnancy; Thrombophlebitis; Pulmonary emboli; Hypercoagulable states; and/or, Allergy to the sclerosing agents.
