Sclerotherapy was created over 75 years ago and is currently one of the sought out treatments used for spider veins and varicose veins. This procedure can last from 15 minutes to 30 minutes, contingent on the number of veins treated in one session. After treatment you will see gradual improvement with this procedure. Our patients have experienced 75% to 90% of the treated vessels resolved.
Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure used to treat spider and some varicose veins by injecting a solution into the vein, which irritates the lining of the vessels. This causes the veins to close and normally fade away within 2- 4 weeks. This procedure has been used in the treatment of spider and varicose veins since the 1930s. Modern techniques including ultrasonographic guidance and foam sclerotherapy are the latest developments in this evolution.
