Get to Know About the Treatment:
Sclerotherapy is a procedure which is used for spider veins treatment and involves directly injecting an FDA approved solution called sclerosant into the vein.
The solution damages the vein’s internal lining and causes the blood to clot within the vein. The body then itself naturally destroys the vein and it would then disappear.
The solution used for this procedure is usually Asclera® (polidocanol), though sodium tetradecyl sulfate (STS) can also be used.
Sclerotherapy is also a minimally invasive procedure.
How does Sclerotherapy work?
After the Treatment:
Once the procedure is complete, you will be expected to wear compression stocking which further helps to close the treated vein.
By compressing, blood will not trap in the treated vein and allows its walls to remain closed.
You will be asked to wear a compression stocking for about 1-3 weeks.
You can expect to start your work and resume your normal activities on the same day but you must avoid heavy exercise. We encourage you to walk after the procedure.
You will have a follow-up visit in 1-2 weeks following the treatment.
We perform sclerotherapy in a compassionate way keeping in mind patient satisfaction. Most of the patients we have treated have found marked improvements in their symptoms of diseased veins.
