What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is an effective, FDA-approved treatment that diminishes and even eliminates spider veins and varicose veins. At Advanced Vein Therapy, our highly trained physicians use this minimally invasive approach to address venous disease and help patients regain their health and self-esteem.

Sclerotherapy involves injecting a sterile, foamy solution into the affected veins with a fine needle. The solution causes the vein to become irritated, shrink, and close rerouting blood to healthier veins. Results are visible immediately after the first treatment; however, it may require several treatments for optimal results.  

While patients may experience some minor irritation while the foamy solution is being injected, in general, they report feeling minimal pain and are able to return to their normal daily task immediately.
