Sclerotherapy or microsclerotherapy is the injection of medicine in the vascular tributaries that reflux.
The medicine effects the inner part of the vessel and covers the vein pipe thus closing it. It is using primarily for the treatment of spider veins, and it is the most painless and particularly effective and bearable treatment for the patient, due to the fact that the patient can return to his/ her daily activities right after the treatment.
The sclerotherapy in performed in our clinic and the required number of sessions that are necessary are usually two to four, though it differs from patient to patient. The sessions are usually two per month, thus the between the sessions the time that intercedes are usually two to three weeks.
For the best aesthetic result, the use of compression stockings is recommended for 5 to 10 days after each session of sclerotherapy.
There are some cases that may lead to complications after the application of sclerotherapy.
