Am I a Candidate for Sclerotherapy Treatment?
You will be thoroughly assessed by Elena Ginsberg , FNP – BC to determine if you are a good candidate and if you have small varicose veins or spider like veins which are not causing other problems. Sclerotheraphy is frequently used in conjunction with laser treatment to achieve optimal results. If you are pregnant, nursing, or have blood clots in deep leg veins this is not recommended for you.
*Individual results may vary.
It is important to let us know if you are taking any new medications or herbals. Also, it is best not to wear any tight fitting clothes, loose clothes and shorts are recommended. If you have compression stockings, then bring those with you for your visit. Finally, you may shave your legs the morning of your treatment, but do not use any lotions or moisturizers.
What Should I Expect after Sclerotherapy Treatment?
The unwanted veins will shrink immediately after injecting the veins with a sclerosing solution, and then dissolve over a period of weeks as the body naturally absorbs the treated veins. After injection, pressure is applied so that the blood does not return once you stand up. For spider veins and cosmetic sclerotheraphy 3 days of compression stockings may be adequate. For larger veins (perforating veins), reticular veins, 3 weeks stockings shown the best results. It typically takes two to four treatments spaced 4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Our physician will inform you of the proper care specific to your treatment.
