Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a prescription sclerosing agent, to remove unwanted veins on your legs. It treats two types of veins: uncomplicated spider veins which are very small varicose veins less than 1 mm in diameter or uncomplicated small varicose veins 1-3 mm in diameter which are known as reticular veins. We use a sclerosing agent called Asclera®. It works by damaging the cells lining the inside of the blood vessel. This causes blood platelets to attach to the lining of the vessels and the result is clotting of the blood vessel.

Over time, the clotted vein will be replaced with tissue. More than one treatment may be necessary to treat larger areas of spider or reticular veins. After each treatment you will be required to wear compression stockings continuously for 2-3 days and during the daytime for 2-3 weeks. You will be advised to walk for 15-20 minutes immediately after the procedure and daily for the next few days. For two to three days you will need to avoid heavy exercise, sunbathing, long plane rides and hot baths or saunas.
