Sclerotherapy: Varicose Veins Treatment

Sclerotherapy is a method of treating spider veins, varicose veins, or any other vein malformations of its kind. Sclerotherapy is done by injecting sclerosing solutions to target veins. After the treatment, sclerotherapy patients may see visible results immediately, but the veins will totally shrink after 7-10 days after the sclerosing solution is absorbed by the veins.

Sclerotherapy is mostly preferred than laser varicose veins treatment. This is because the sclerosing solution used in Sclerotherapy makes recurrence of the varicose or spider veins in the treated area less likely.
