Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical outpatient procedure designed to mitigate the appearance of spider veins and small and superficial varicose veins. Unsightly varicose veins in the legs, face or almost any part of the body can eliminated through sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is minimally invasive: it only involves the use of a micro needle to inject a solution that makes the unwanted veins fade or disappear.
After sclerotherapy treatment, compression bandages are usually applied to increase pressure and reduce inflammation of the veins. The bandages can usually be removed after one or two days, although it may be necessary to use a means of support for approximately two weeks.
