Sclerotherapy in Vein Treatment
Sclerotherapy is an art that has been refined over many years of practice in spider vein treatment. During this time, innovations in the medication and delivery of treatment have increased both the safety and efficacy of treatment.
Today, sclerotherapy is a powerful tool in the hands of a qualified vein doctor. Unlike laser vein treatment, sclerotherapy is effective for both small and large spider veins. Additionally, modified techniques in sclerotherapy have also increased its utilization in the treatment of varicose veins eliminating the need for more invasive procedures like microphlebectomy.
In this article, we present the different uses of sclerotherapy and how the Princeton Vascular Center is setting itself apart as the premier destination for vein treatment in NJ.
Sclerotherapy is the preferred treatment for patients seeking to get rid of spider veins. During a sclerotherapy session, the vein doctor will inject a small amount of a medicine called a sclerosant into the vein. The medication acts like a detergent and lining of the diseased vein walls. Ultimately, the veins break apart and are reabsorbed into the body. The effect of treatment is seen over the course of 4 to 6 weeks with the spider veins gradually disappearing. Most patients will require 2 or 3 sessions for near complete resolution. Your vein specialist can give you a better indication with direct examination.
