Sclerotherapy

As anyone who suffers from varicose veins or spider veins can tell you, these conditions are not just cosmetic issues. Varicose veins can cause chronic aching in the legs and arms and can become dangerous if left untreated. Sclerotherapy is a quick, effective, in-office treatment that encourages the body to rid itself of unsightly, uncomfortable, problem-causing veins.

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is the injection of a solution (usually a salt solution) into a vein. This solution irritates the lining of the vein so that it swells, and its sides stick together. The blood will then clot. This procedure signals the body that the vein is now unusable; blood is diverted elsewhere, and the vessel eventually scars and fades from view.

Who Can Get Sclerotherapy?

You’ll consult with Dr. Sadeghi, and potentially a vascular medicine specialist, to determine if you’re a good candidate for the quick and simple sclerotherapy procedure. Pregnant women are not eligible for the procedure; those who have experienced blood clots in the past will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

 How to Prepare for Your Treatment

Discuss with Dr. Sadeghi which medications and over-the-counter pain aids you’ll need to avoid prior to your treatment. Don’t apply lotion to skin before your appointment.

Risks and Side Effects of Sclerotherapy

As the treated vein clots, it may become raised or hard. It may require several months to dissolve into the body. Some patients experience temporary itching in and around the injected vein(s). Redness, bruising, or raised skin at the injection site are also common. These effects should fade within two to three days. Brown spots or lines may also appear at the injection site — while in most cases, these fade, they may remain indefinitely. New, small blood vessels may also develop around the injection site. This is known as neovascularization. These vessels generally disappear on their own a few months following the procedure.
