Sclerotherapy

Begone, painful and unsightly veins

When treatments like compression stockings or over-the-counter anti-inflammatories don’t alleviate swelling or pain, sclerotherapy is another option. Sclerotherapy is an outpatient procedure, meaning that it doesn’t require hospitalization and is typically completed within 20 minutes.  If you have pain or swelling due to spider or varicose veins, contact us and we’ll find a treatment that works for you.

Overview

When you need to treat spider veins, they can be treated with sclerotherapy. Spider and varicose veins are relatively common conditions that, in the worst cases, can cause severe pain and discourage sufferers from wearing shorts or skirts. If you need help, contact us to learn how we can help you!

Sclerotherapy is used to treat varicose or spider veins, and in some cases, malformed lymph vessels, and hemorrhoids as well. Large juicy painful varicose veins should be evaluated in the context of your entire venous system to check for reflux, incompetent perforators, and other problems treated by vascular surgeons.
