This is normally the first treatment choice for varicose veins, spider veins, and reticular veins. Also known as injection therapy, sclerotherapy involves the injection of a liquid or foam chemical irritant into the vein, making it swell, seal shut or stick together. Once blood is no longer flowing through the vein, the vein gradually fades.
Sclerotherapy is minimally invasive since no local anesthesia is required. The agents used are slightly painful and may cause just temporary swelling or bruising. The therapy session lasts 15 minutes and but you’ll need more than one session for a full treatment. After every session, you’ll need to wear compression stockings for one to two weeks.
This treatment involves applying a laser to the surface of the skin to treat spider veins and varicose veins. The light wavelength emitted by laser heats up and damages the vein without injuring the nearby tissues. Laser injection is less painful but you may experience temporary itching, swelling or bruising. The treatment usually lasts 15 to 20 minutes but afterward, you’ll need to wear compression stockings to aid in the treatment process.
