WHAT IS SCLEROTHERAPY?
Sclerotherapy is the treatment of varicose/spider veins of the legs with a sclerosing agent. The sclerosing agent is injected into
the veins, causing the walls of the veins to become ‘sticky’, collapsing and then gradually fibrosis develop, with the vein disappearing. Most patients have a 70 - 80% improvement of their varicose/spider veins, but maintenance treatment is recommended because sclerotherapy is not a permanent cure for these veins.
WHICH CONDITIONS ARE TREATED WITH SCLEROTHERAPY?
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Usually 40 - 50 minutes
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Usually 3 - 5 sessions, all depending on the amount and severity of your varicose veins/spider veins. One session can be done every 2 - 3 months. The areas treated usually look worse at first and then gradually improve over a couple of months,
so we advise clients to be patient.
