What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution directly into the vein, causing it to scar and reroute blood to healthier veins. The collapsed vein is then reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. This treatment is renowned for its effectiveness in improving the appearance of vein abnormalities and alleviating associated symptoms.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

The process begins with a small needle injecting a sclerosing solution into the affected vein. This solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and stick together. Over time, the treated vein turns into scar tissue that fades from view. The procedure typically takes less than an hour and requires no anesthesia, with patients able to resume daily activities shortly after.
