Benefits of Injection Sclerotherapy

If you’ve researched possible leg vein treatments, you are discovering that injection sclerotherapy may just be the ideal treatment for you. Here’s why: it’s a noninvasive, yet very effective outpatient procedure. Most people resume their normal activities in a very short time – unless you are involved in high intensity physical activity. You see and feel the benefits very quickly. Think about how nice it would be to eliminate the pain and irritation caused by varicose and spider veins with a treatment that takes about 30 minutes.

There are several types of sclerotherapy. Injection sclerotherapy offers several benefits over laser sclerotherapy such as:

  • Allows the Treatment of a Much Larger Area
  • Treats Diseased Veins in a Shorter Period
  • Involves Less Discomfort

Understanding our Sclerotherapy Process

During the injection sclerotherapy procedure in our office a diluted FDA-approved chemical solution is injected into the problem vein through a tiny needle. The solution inflames the vein wall, which then closes off the vein. This procedure doesn’t cause the degree of burning and pain that is associated with the concentrated saline solutions used in the past or LASER spider vein treatments.
Injection sclerotherapy has advanced in recent years, and we offer the latest form of this treatment.

What to Expect After Sclerotherapy

Depending on the extent of your spider veins, the final results of injection sclerotherapy may take weeks or even months to be fully visible. Here are some other things you can expect after sclerotherapy:

  • Compression Socks – You are encouraged to wear compression socks for 72 hours after injection sclerotherapy treatment.
  • Direct Sun Exposure – You will need to avoid direct sun exposure or the use of tanning beds for two weeks following treatment to reduce staining.
  • Staining of the Skin – You should notice that most skin staining fades within the first 6 to 12 weeks following injection sclerotherapy (however, staining could last up to one year after treatment). Note that skin staining is simply the iron residue left from red blood cells. Staining is typically found in the upper layers of the skin.
