Sclerotherapy Q & A

What is Sclerotherapy and how is it performed?

Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive treatment for reticular and spider veins in the legs or lower extremities. During the procedure, a liquid chemical called a sclerosant is injected into the damaged vein. The solution triggers closure of the vein.

Is Sclerotherapy painful?

There is usually minimal to no discomfort. 

Is there any downtime associated with this procedure? 

Sclerotherapy does not require any downtime, and patients are able to walk immediately after treatment.  We recommend you avoid any strenuous exercise for 3 days following the procedure.

How many sessions are usually needed?

A total of 3-5 sessions, 2-3 weeks apart.
