WHAT IS IT ?
Sclerotherapy is a proven procedure that has been in use since the 1930s.
The number of veins injected in one session depends on the size and location of the veins, as well as the general medical condition of the patient. Sclerotherapy is performed in the doctor's office by a dermatologist or a surgeon and requires that you do not do any aerobic activity for a few days after the procedure.
In general, spider veins respond in a few weeks, and larger veins respond in three to four months (depending on individual). If the veins respond to the treatment, they will not reappear. However, new veins may appear at the same rate as before. If needed, you may return for injections.
