This procedure treats malformations in blood vessels when medicine is injected into the vessels, making them shrink. This treatment can also be used for children and young adults. Common uses for sclerosis in adults include treatment of spider veins, varicose veins, and venous malformations.
In sclerotherapy, unwanted veins are injected with a solution that targets the vein, causing it to immediately shrink. In the weeks following the treatment, the vein will dissolve as the body undergoes a natural process of absorbing the treated vein. This non-invasive procedure is preferred over laser emanation because the sclerosing solution also closes the “feeder” veins that cause malformations to form.
Sclerotherapy often takes place in conjunction with with ultrasound guidance for larger veins.
Patients will wear compression stockings or bandages for about two weeks after treatment. Usually at least two sessions are required for significant results, and during the weeks between sessions patients may walk regularly. The procedure itself takes about 10 minutes, and there is minimal downtime to follow.
