Unwanted veins are easily treated and removed with Sclerotherapy.
What is Sclerotherapy ?
Sclerotherapy is a safe, effective way to eliminate unwanted spider or varicose veins, which can form on the legs. The procedure involves a series of injections into the vein with a sclerosing agent. Through the skill and technique of Dr. Aszterbaum, sclerotherapy safely and effectively shrinks superficial veins and their feeder vein. By wearing compression stockings, the blood supply remains cut off in the targeted vein, causing it to dissolve over a few weeks.
What are the side effects of sclerotherapy?
After undergoing sclerotherapy treatment for leg veins, it’s very common to experience leg swelling, especially if you do not continue wearing the compression stockings and/or do not walk as advised. Typically, compression stockings should be worn around the clock for the first seven days. If a compression dressing is not properly applied with the correct bandage, outcomes will not be optimized.
How long are sclerotherapy treatments?
Each session is scheduled with Dr. Aszterbaum for 45 minutes.
How many sclerotherapy treatments will I need?
In some cases, 2 – 3 sessions are recommended to achieve the best possible results. It is important to note that results vary and depend on each patient’s unique vein issues and overall health.
How long does it take to see results after Sclerotherapy?
Though the results vary from person to person, it is possible to notice an improvement right away. However, over the course of the next several weeks, your veins will continue to resolve, therefore improving results.
