What is Sclerotherapy

 

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical medical procedure used to treat spider veins. During the procedure, a solution is injected into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade over time. Sclerotherapy improves the appearance and discomfort associated with spider veins.

How Does Sclerotherapy Treatment Work?

A specialized solution is injected into the spider veins using a very fine needle. The solution irritates the inner lining of the veins, causing them to become inflamed and stick together. This process closes off problematic veins, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins nearby. Over time, the body naturally absorbs the collapsed vein tissue, leading to a gradual fading of the treated veins from view. Depending on the severity of their presentation, patients often require multiple sessions to become completely symptom-free.

Is Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins Painful?

Sclerotherapy for spider veins is considered to be a minimally painful procedure. Most describe the sensation as mild discomfort or a slight burning or stinging sensation at the injection site. The level of pain or discomfort depends on the individual’s pain tolerance, the size and location of the veins being treated and the specific solution used for the procedure.

 

Any discomfort typically lasts only a few seconds as the solution is injected into the veins. After the injection, discomfort tends to subside relatively quickly. Some patients experience a sensation of heaviness or tightness in the treated area due to the effect of the solution on the blood vessels. This sensation tends to resolve within a short time.
