What is Sclerotherapy of Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment used to treat varicose and spider veins. The procedure involves injecting a solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to shrink and eventually disappear.
What are some common uses of the procedure?
Sclerotherapy is used to improve spider veins' cosmetic appearance and relieve some of the symptoms associated with spider veins, including aching, burning, swelling, and night cramps.
What are the benefits vs. risks?
- Each sclerotherapy session typically results in the elimination of 50 to 80 percent of the injected veins.
- Any procedure where the skin is penetrated carries a risk of infection. The chance of infection requiring antibiotic treatment appears to be less than one in 1,000.
- Risks include blood clots forming in the veins, severe inflammation, adverse allergic reactions to the sclerosing solution, and skin injury that could leave a small but permanent scar.
What are the limitations of Sclerotherapy?
Large varicose veins do not respond as well as small ones to sclerotherapy. A few (less than 10 percent) of people who has sclerotherapy do not respond to the injections at all?
You will not be able to undergo sclerotherapy treatment if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or are bedridden.
