Sclerotherapy is a very effective treatment for enlarged veins. It involves injections into unwanted veins with a sclerosant. The solution creates shrinkage in the target veins, causing them to fade and disappear over several weeks. By applying immediate pressure on the site of injections, the opposing walls of the veins are brought together, causing them to stick together and effectively closing the vein.
Sclerotherapy is considered the gold standard in varicose and spider vein treatment. *It is non-invasive and takes less than an hour to perform, with patients able to resume their daily activities immediately following treatment
Another advantage to sclerotherapy is its ability to prevent recurrence. It not only addresses varicose and spider veins, it also addresses what are called “feeder veins,” which cause the varicose and spider veins to form in the first place. *The rate of recurrence after sclerotherapy is very low, causing patients to receive sclerotherapy over laser or invasive treatment methods.
*Even with no downtime, no recovery period, and very little discomfort, sclerotherapy offers better results than competitive procedures. Sclerotherapy has effectively helped patients treat:
*Highly effective in treating spider veins in legs, sclerotherapy eliminates visible veins with a minimum of discomfort and treatment time. Dr Sarojini Nair will use a very thin needle to inject a solution into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and disappear. *Depending on the size of the area to be treated, sclerotherapy sessions generally last between 30 and 45 minutes or less. Patients may return to their normal daily activities immediately after sclerotherapy, as a 20 minute daily walk immediately after treatment is part of the protocol, Dr. Nair may also ask you to wear compression stockings for a few days to aid healing.
