What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a way for a dermatologist to treat spider veins and varicose veins without surgical intervention. These diseased veins close with the injection of a sclerosing gel. The sclerosing gel, when administered directly into the problematic vein, closes it up and allows the body to absorb it naturally. The blood that once traveled through that vein is then redirected to stronger, healthier veins instead. Doctors have used sclerosing gel for years in varicose vein and spider vein treatment.

What can I expect during my sclerotherapy appointment?

Many patients feel uneasy about undergoing an appointment when injectables are administered. However, patients are at ease and comfortable with Dr. Amanda Lloyd of the Skin and Vein Institute. The unique solution injected into the vein allows fast and effective treatment. While there may be some discomfort caused by the injectable, it is minor when compared to other treatment options patients may consider, including surgical intervention. Patients who undergo sclerotherapy will be able to discuss what to expect when they arrive for their appointment. Additionally, they are given specific aftercare instructions to ensure a fast and comfortable healing experience.
