This effective and common varicose vein treatment is minimally invasive. A Jefferson Surgical Clinic vascular surgeon can perform this procedure in the outpatient center with no anesthesia required.
Sclerotherapy treatment uses a very fine needle to inject a special sclerosing solution into the varicose (or spider) veins. This causes the veins to collapse and eventually disappear. In addition to improving cosmetic appearance, many patients find other symptoms are relieved as well. The procedure usually takes about 30-45 minutes.
This treatment has been very successful for thousands of patients, and the surgeons at Jefferson Surgical Clinic want you to know what to expect. Treating this blood vessel condition may result in a minimal amount of discomfort during and after the procedure. Many patients see positive results in just a short time after the treatment.
