Sclerotherapy at Orchid Aesthetics, Manhattan, New York

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose and spider veins, and involves the injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to stick to itself with compression. In response, the veins are reabsorbed, and they are no longer visible.

Sclerotherapy is a common treatment for small and medium size spider veins, and is preferred over laser for eliminating spider veins. Unlike a laser, the sclerosing solution additionally closes the “feeder veins” under the skin that are causing the spider veins to form, thereby making a recurrence of the spider veins in the treated area less likely. With this procedure, veins can be eliminated at an early stage, helping to prevent further complications.

How many treatments will I need?

You may need anywhere from one to several sclerotherapy sessions depending on the type and number of veins being treated.

Sclerotherapy Effectiveness

Studies have shown that many of the injected veins may be eliminated with each session of sclerotherapy. Although this procedure works for most patients, there are no guarantees for success. Up to 60% of the veins disapear with only one injection, 40% may need additional injections to clear completely.

Candidates for Sclerotherapy

Prior to sclerotherapy, you will have an initial consultation with the physician.

You can not have treatment if you are pregnant or nursing. You can have sclerotherapy if you take birth control pills. If you have had a blood clot in the past, your eligibility will be decided on an individual basis, and will depend on your overall health.

Can I resume normal activities after each treatment?

Generally, normal activities may be resumed after sclerotherapy. Support hose must be worn for several days to assist in the resolution of the veins. This procedure, performed in the doctor’s office, usually causes only minimal discomfort, and walking is very important and necessary to aid in the elimination of the veins.

Bruising and pigmentation may occur after sclerotherapy. Bruising typically disappears within 1-2 weeks. Although pigmentation almost always fades, although it can last for several months and it is very important to avoid direct sun light until complete healing.
