Reliable results with sclerotherapy treatment for leg veins

Most medical practices now use lasers in some way. This technology has been a game changing advance in healthcare. However, there are situations when a conventional alternative has advantages. Sclerotherapy treatment for spider and varicose leg veins is a good example.

Sclerotherapy basics

Sclerotherapy involves the controlled introduction of an irritant into a superficial vein, using a very fine needle. The sclerosant causes the vein to collapse and dry up. It is then harmlessly absorbed by the body.

Advantages of sclerotherapy

  • Sclerotherapy is appropriate for treatment of veins on hands, as well as legs.
  • It can be used as an adjunct to other vein treatments, for full resolution.
  • Medium-sized varicose veins can be treated successfully with a foaming sclerosant.
  • Treatment has been proven safe and effective over more than 150 years.
  • There is low risk of skin discoloration, even in patients with darker complexions (compared to laser treatment).
  • Sclerotherapy is well-tolerated.
  • Depending on the number of veins addressed, a sclerotherapy session lasts an hour or less.
  • Side effects (burning, itching, discomfort, or bruising at injection sites) are typically mild and resolve quickly.
  • Sclerotherapy is generally more economical than laser therapy.
