Sclerotherapy: An Effective Treatment for Varicose Veins and Spider Veins
Looking for a safe and effective way to get rid of unsightly varicose veins and spider veins? Sclerotherapy might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. During the procedure, a special solution is injected into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and eventually fade away. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in a doctor’s office with little to no downtime required.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
The solution used in sclerotherapy causes an irritation in the lining of the treated veins, which leads to the formation of scar tissue. Over time, the scar tissue closes off the treated veins, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed veins are eventually absorbed by the body and disappear from view.
Is Sclerotherapy Right for You?
Sclerotherapy is typically recommended for patients who have small to medium-sized varicose veins or spider veins. It may not be the best choice for those with larger veins or more serious vein problems. Your doctor will evaluate your individual situation and help determine if sclerotherapy is the right treatment option for you.

What to Expect During Sclerotherapy
During the procedure, your doctor will use a fine needle to inject the sclerosing solution directly into the affected veins. You may feel some mild discomfort or cramping during the injection process, but this usually only lasts a few seconds. After the procedure, you’ll be able to resume your normal activities within a short period of time.
Possible Side Effects of Sclerotherapy
While sclerotherapy is generally considered safe, there are some possible side effects to be aware of. These may include:
- Mild itching or redness at the injection site
- Bruising or swelling around the treated veins
- Brownish discoloration of the skin in the treated area
- Formation of small blood clots in the treated veins
Most side effects are mild and go away on their own within a few days to a few weeks.
