Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice, preferred even over laser surgery for the removal of leg veins.  This procedure entails an injection of superficial leg veins with a sclerosant.  Fibrosis gradually develops and obliterates the lumen of the vessel.  The needle used is small, and there is little pain involved. Several veins can be treated per visit.  After treatment, there may be some transient bruising and/or discoloration.  Compression stockings are recommended for a 2 week period after the procedure.  Approximately 50% of the veins injected will require additional treatments; these can be done at four-week intervals.
