Sclerotherapy is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment used to remove small varicose veins and spider veins. This painless procedure is usually completed within 30 minutes and requires no downtime.
During sclerotherapy, a sclerosing solution, such as polidocanol, is injected into the affected veins. This solution works by fusing the walls of the veins together, causing them to shrink and eventually fade away from the skin’s surface. Most patients report significant improvement within the first three weeks after the procedure.
While bruising and swelling may occur for a few days or weeks following sclerotherapy, the recovery process can be aided by walking frequently and wearing medical grade compression stockings to ensure smooth blood circulation.
