Sclerotherapy

One of the common minimally invasive options to treat varicose or spider veins is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a treatment in which a chemical solution is injected into diseased or problem veins.  This solution irritates the vein lining causing it to undergo fibrosis, closure and eventually disappear, so that these abnormal veins no longer can fill with blood. After each injection gauze and tape is applied to create compression over the injected area.  At the endo of the procedure, external compression is applied using support hose. The compression causes the vein walls to seal together and the vein no longer can transport blood. Your body then breaks down and absorbs the damaged vein.

In a few weeks, the treated vein will be “absorbed” by the body as blood flow is re-routed to other veins.  When healing is complete the vein is no longer visible. The process is very similar to how your body heals a bad bruise. Multiple treatments may be needed to close the damaged vein.  Your physician will perform these treatments in a the office or clinic.

We understand the importance of treating “feeder” veins, also known as reticular veins. These veins often “feed” blood into the visible spider veins however sometimes they are a bit too deep to visualize with the naked eye. This is why we utilize advanced vein light technology to see these veins and to ensure you get the absolute best, most effective treatment possible.
