Sclerotherapy is a vein removal treatment that your GYN Aesthetics & Wellness doctor performs onsite during short treatment sessions. Sclerotherapy is generally used for spider veins, but is also used to treat larger varicose veins.
In sclerotherapy, your doctor injects a sclerosing agent, a type of foam called polidocanol, into your unwanted veins. Although polidocanol isn’t yet FDA approved, it’s widely regarded by vein removal experts as a superior option to other sclerosing agents because of its improved safety profile. The polidocanol irritates your veins and causes a shriveling reaction in the vein.
Sclerotherapy is often combined with laser therapy. The polidocanol and laser heat work together to destroy the vein walls. The blood in your treated veins moves to other areas of your body and you flush away the vein tissue to leave your skin clear and vein free.
After your sclerotherapy sessions, you’ll wear compression hose or a compression bandage for up to two weeks. This supports circulation, reduces swelling, and encourages fast healing. There’s generally little to no downtime following sclerotherapy.
It depends on how severe your veins are. On average, it takes about 3-5 sclerotherapy treatments to clear unwanted veins. For severe veins, it might take up to 10 sessions. Most patients enjoy significant vein reduction or even clearing within a few months of treatment.
Once your veins clear, you might need occasional sclerotherapy treatments to keep them that way. New spider or varicose veins could develop and require separate treatment.
Be sure to closely follow your GYN Aesthetics & Wellness doctor’s recommendations after your treatment to prevent spider veins going forward. This usually includes regular exercise, avoiding excessive standing, and maintaining a healthy weight.
The cost of sclerotherapy varies depending on the degree of your veins and how many veins require removal. Your GYN Aesthetics & Wellness care provider discusses your sclerotherapy needs and the cost at your consultation so you know what to expect.
