What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a very fine, thin needle to inject a sterile sclerosing solution directly into spider and varicose veins, causing them to shrink and disappear.

What is the benefit of Sclerotherapy?

It reduces or eliminates the appearance of spider veins and small varicose veins in the legs, leading to smoother appearing legs and improved cosmetic appearance.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions required may vary from patient to patient, depending upon their particular condition. Some patients are happy with results after just one treatment, others may desire further injections for the optimal effect.

What are the sessions like?

Because Sclerotherapy is performed with a very fine needle, there is very little pain associated with the procedure and anesthesia is not needed. Sessions take place in the physician office and last 15-30 minutes. You can return to work the same day.
