What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. During sclerotherapy, the health care provider injects a solution directly into the affected vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. Sclerotherapy is a well-established procedure that has been used since the 1930s.

The Process

Sclerotherapy is performed in our clinic. First, the treatment area is cleansed. The solution is then injected directly into the blood vessel, using very fine needles. The number of veins injected in one session varies depending on the size and location of the veins and the patient's overall medical condition.


High Success Rate

Sclerotherapy works well for most patients. It is estimated that as many as 50-80% of injected veins are eliminated with each injection session. A small minority of people (less than 10%) who have sclerotherapy do not respond to the injections at all. In these instances, different solutions or a different method — such as laser therapy — may produce better results.

In general, spider veins respond to treatment in 3-6 weeks, and larger veins respond in 3-4 months. If the veins respond to the treatment, usually they will not reappear. However, new veins may appear over time, and patients are encouraged to return for repeat treatments.
