Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure used to treat varicose and spider veins. Although we usually use sclerotherapy on the legs, it can be used virtually anywhere on the body where unsightly veins appear. During a sclerotherapy treatment session, solutions are injected directly into the unsightly veins. The sclerosing agents that we choose to use include polidocanol, sotradecol and glycerin. When injected into the vein, these agents react with the lining of the vein wall causing an inflammatory reaction which causes the vein wall to stick together. Following the procedure, you will be required to wear compression stockings for 2 weeks to help keep the veins closed.
