p4-dSclerotherapy is another treatment for both varicose and spider veins. This outpatient procedure involves injecting a liquid or foam sclerosing solution through a tiny needle into the vein, which then collapses and is absorbed by the body. Treatments involve one or more injections during one or more sessions, depending on the type, number and severity of the varicose / spider veins being treated. By the end of the sclerotherapy treatment program, the veins are no longer visible on the skin surface. Sclerotherapy can also relieve symptoms associated with enlarged veins and prevent further complications from occurring. On average, two to three sclerotherapy sessions are required, spaced four to six weeks apart. After each session, patients may have to wear bandages or support hose for a few days or weeks and are encouraged to walk or exercise to speed recovery. Bruising and swelling (if present) should fade within a week or two. Sclerotherapy rarely produces more severe side effects such as scarring, although it cannot prevent the recurrence of vascular lesions.

Ultra-sound Guided Sclerotherapy

In Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy, diseased veins are monitored on an ultrasound screen during the injection process, allowing the Doctor to treat problem veins that aren’t visible on the skin’s surface. This type of sclerotherapy allows for more complete treatment of venous insufficiency and better resolution of symptoms. It also lowers the chance of recurrence.

Following any sclerotherapy procedure you will be placed in a compression dressing or stockings and are encouraged to walk or exercise to speed up recovery. Bruising and swelling are rare but if present should fade within a week or two.

Trans-illuminated Sclerotherapy

Trans-Illuminated Sclerotherapy uses a new technology known as side-trans-illumination or Veinlite. Light generated by a halogen bulb travels through a high quality fiber into the Veinlite ring where it is directed into the skin at a fixed angle, providing uniform illumination and visualization of varicose / spider veins in the legs. This method is able to uniformly trans-illuminate a small region of the skin so that much better imaging of the veins is achieved without shadows. This allows better visualization of those hard-to-find veins in young and old patients and spider veins during Micro-Sclerotherapy.
