What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a simple medical procedure that has been used since the 1930s to treat a wide range of vein conditions. The technique involves injecting a sclerosing agent directly into the affected vein, which induces the vein to scar and ultimately collapse. The body then naturally disposes of the damaged vein through the lymph system, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue unaffected. Sclerotherapy is particularly effective in treating spider veins and small varicose veins that often cause discomfort and embarrassment. Although the treatment can be a bit uncomfortable, patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure with very little downtime required. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective way of treating vein malformations and restoring healthy blood flow to the affected areas, helping alleviate various symptoms such as pain, swelling, and skin discolouration.

Patients who can undergo sclerotherapy are those who want to improve the appearance of their legs and eliminate varicose and spider veins with non-surgical varicose vein treatment.

What Happens During a Treatment for Varicose Veins?

 Varicose veins are a common problem, and there are several treatments available to alleviate the symptoms. One option is an injection-based treatment where a tiny needle is used to insert medication directly into the affected vein. This irritates the vein, causing it to become inflamed and eventually close shut. The procedure, which is performed under local anaesthetic, takes less than an hour per leg, can be slightly uncomfortable, but is generally well-tolerated. Before the treatment, patients will have an initial consultation with a healthcare professional where they will discuss their medical history and any concerns they may have. As with any medical procedure, there may be some post-treatment discomfort, but most people report significant improvement in the appearance and symptoms of their varicose veins after treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects To Veins and Spider Veins Treatment?

This procedure is a minimally invasive treatment which is the reason why it has low side effects. Most patients may experience some swelling, itching, bruising, and to a lesser extent hyperpigmentation in the treated areas. But, you don’t need to worry, these symptoms are temporary and will disappear over time. Moreover, the minor discomfort associated with the needling only last the time the session takes to perform, around 20 to 30 minutes.
