What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a popular method for eliminating varicose veins and superficial telangiectasias (“spider veins”) in which a solution, called a sclerosing agent, is injected into the veins.
Does sclerotherapy WORK for everyone?
The majority of persons who have sclerotherapy performed will be cleared or at least see improvement. unfortunately, however, there is no guarantee that sclerotherapy will be effective in every case. approximately 10% of patients who undergo sclerotherapy have poor to fair results (“poor results” means that the veins have not totally disappeared after six treatments).
How Many treatments will I need?
The number of treatment needed to clear or improve the condition differs from patient to patient, depending on the extent of varicose and spider veins present. One to six or more treatments may be needed; the average is three to four. Individual veins usually require one to three treatments. All this will be discussed at your complimentary consultation to ensure the treatment is the best option for you.
