Sclerotherapy is a safe, painless and effective method to treat spider veins on lower extremities. Spider veins on lower extremities constitute a very common problem, especially for women. Sclerotherapy does not require anesthesia, hospitalization or absence from one’s daily activities. It is easy to apply, and does not require the patient to receive pre-medication (prophylactic treatment). When performed by specialists, such as the medical staff of Cosmetic Derma Medicine, it can produce excellent aesthetic results.

Sclerotherapy involves the intravenous injection of a strong solution, the sclerosant, on the varicose venous parts of the lower extremities that present valve failure, which results in the pathological stasis of the blood and their dilation.

FAQ’s on sclerotherapy

Is sclerotherapy painful?

Sclerotherapy is performed with the use of very fine needles and the patient rarely feels pain. Also, polidocanol causes no pain or intolerance, and the vein elimination process is practically painless.

How many sclerotherapy sessions will be required?

The number of sessions depends on the extent of the problem. Some veins disappear at the first session.  It usually takes 2 to 3 sessions for these unsightly veins to completely disappear.

What should I do before and after sclerotherapy?

If you have varicose veins on your legs, you must get a triplex before undergoing sclerotherapy, to exclude the possibility of venous insufficiency. After treatment you must refrain from extended standing, and wear compression stockings for 2 or 3 days to prevent the veins from appearing again.

Does sclerotherapy involve any side effects?

 Sclerotherapy with the use of polidocanol has no side effects if it is performed by a specialized doctor. Patients are able to return to their normal activities without any problem or discomfort after treatment.
