“Sclerotherapy” is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins.

Before and after sclerotherapy treatment, there are several differences and considerations:

Before Sclerotherapy Treatment:

  1. Consultation: Patients have a consultation with a vein care professional to determine if they are suitable candidates for sclerotherapy. We will evaluate the severity of the veins, overall health, and any potential risks.
  2. Preparation: Patients might be advised to avoid certain medications, such as blood thinners, before the procedure. They might also be instructed to avoid direct sun exposure on the treatment area.
  3. Medical History: Patients are required to provide their medical history, including any existing medical conditions and medications they are taking. This information helps our vein care team plan a safe and effective treatment.
  4. Expectations: Our professional vein care team will discuss the expected outcomes, potential risks, and any post-treatment care that will be necessary.

During Sclerotherapy Treatment:

  1. Procedure: Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution (sclerosant) directly into the targeted veins using a very fine needle. This solution irritates the lining of the veins, causing them to collapse and eventually fade.
  2. Multiple Sessions: Depending on the extent of the vein issues, multiple treatment sessions might be required. The sessions are usually spaced a few weeks apart to allow the body to absorb the treated veins.
  3. Mild Discomfort: Patients might experience mild discomfort during the injection process. Some describe a sensation of stinging or cramping, but this is generally well-tolerated.

After Sclerotherapy Treatment:

  1. Compression Garments: Patients are often advised to wear compression stockings or garments to help compress the treated veins and reduce swelling. This also helps to improve blood circulation.
  2. Activity Restrictions: Patients might be advised to avoid strenuous activities for a certain period after the procedure.
  3. Healing Process: After the treatment, the body’s natural healing processes will gradually break down and absorb the collapsed veins. This process can take several weeks to months.
  4. Results: Over time, the treated veins will fade and become less noticeable. The final results might not be immediately visible and could take a few months to fully manifest.
  5. Follow-Up: Patients might have a follow-up appointment to assess the results and determine if further sessions are necessary.

It’s important to note that while sclerotherapy can be effective in reducing the appearance of varicose and spider veins, individual results can vary. It’s best to follow the guidance of our vein care team and adhere to any post-treatment care instructions to achieve the best possible outcome.
