What is a Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of your legs by treating damaged and broken veins (varicose, reticular and/or spider). This treatment involves injections of a solution called a sclerosant. The purpose of a sclerosant is to damage the vein walls. This will cause the blood to clot within the treated veins, ultimately stimulating the body to break down the damaged veins. Sclerotherapy usually involves multiple injections of approximately 8cc’s of solution per one hour session. After receiving the injections, a prescription-strength compression stocking will be applied to the treated leg(s).
