Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat small varicose veins by injecting a salt solution, called sclerosant, into the veins which causes them to shrink and gradually disappear. This is a safe, effective and economical way of treating unsightly legs veins. A sclerotherapy session takes about 15 or 30 minutes. Excellent results can often be achieved in 1 to 2 session. There is no downtime. But we advise patients to avoid strenuous activities for 2 to 3 days and to wear compression stocking for 1-2 weeks after sclerotherapy session for best results.

While sclerotherapy is proven as an effective treatment for spider veins, smaller, superficial veins, it is not recommended to pregnant women and those who have deep veins varicosities. Sclerotherapy is not effective for large varicose veins as well. We can help choose the right treatment for your leg veins.
