What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is an effective and highly-tested therapeutic system used to get rid of varicose veins and arachnid veins. Sclerotherapy includes an injection of a solution (usually, a salt solution) into the targeted vein. The injections aggravate the lining of the blood vessels, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clump and harden. After some time, the clamped blood vessel transforms into scar tissue that is slowly absorbed by your body, disappearing from sight.
Your Sclerotherapy Treatment: What to Expect
The effectiveness of sclerotherapy depends on several factors, including skin type, the size of the veins, and the intensity of the laser use. Many patients require multiple sessions for full spider vein removal. Studies have shown that as many as 50%-80% of injected veins may be eliminated with each session of sclerotherapy, with nearly all patients reporting a total disappearance after 2-3 sessions. Less than 3% of the people who have sclerotherapy do not respond to the injections at all. In these instances, different solutions can be tried.

In general, spider veins respond in three to six weeks, and larger veins respond in three to four months. If the veins respond to the treatment, they will not reappear. However, new veins may appear at the same rate as before. If this occurs, give our office a call — extra treatments can be administered at any time.
