Sclerotherapy is a procedure that is highly effective for eliminating varicose and spider veins, and has been used since the 1930s. It involves injecting a saline solution through a very fine needle, causing the vein to collapse. It may cause mild cramping and discomfort, usually more pronounced for larger veins. The entire procedure is very quick, lasting only 15-30 minutes, depending on how many veins are to be treated, their location, and the physical or medical condition of the patient.
Sclerotherapy is performed by Dr. Gilvydis in our clinic. Before treatment, you will avoid applying lotions; however, taking medications is ok. Post-treatment recommendations are to avoid aerobic activity for several days. Call us with any Questions.
