What is sclerotherapy treatment?
Sclerotherapy treatment is often the option of choice for patients who want to close or remove varicose veins and/or spider veins on the legs. Sclerotherapy is a quick, comfortable, and proven non-invasive procedure that is done during a standard office visit on an outpatient basis. Sclerotherapy treatment results in little (if any) downtime or effect on a patient’s normal activities.
Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a proven and safe solution directly into the spider or varicose veins being treated. This injection, using a tiny needle and local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort, causes spider veins and varicose veins to collapse. As a result, blood is rerouted to healthier veins and the unhealthy vein is reabsorbed by the body, fading from view over time.
Veins treated with sclerotherapy generally respond within a few weeks. Depending on the extent and severity of the varicose veins and/or spider veins being treated, multiple sclerotherapy treatments may be needed to completely close or remove the veins at issue.
Following sclerotherapy treatment, patients are fitted with compression bandages or socks, which must be worn for about a week to ensure optimal sclerotherapy results. Patients are able to return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Sclerotherapy costs are typically covered by insurance for many vascular conditions, however, each patient’s symptoms, situation, and coverage is unique. If you have questions about sclerotherapy costs, your condition, and/or the procedure, please don’t hesitate to contact us or schedule your free vein consultation.
