Sclerotherapy - Vein Removal
Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure that has been in practice for many decades to treat varicose veins. A small amount of sclerosis agent is gently injected through a tiny needle into the blood vessel. The injection flushes out the red blood cells temporarily leading to an inflammatory reaction. This is what’s called “slerosis” – a formation of fibrous tissue within the vessel which causes its gradual disappearance. This can take from a few weeks to a few months. Many areas will need three to five treatments to fade. During each treatment, multiple areas can be targeted, reducing the overall number of sessions you may need.
