Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive medical procedure used to remove small blood vessels, such as spider veins or varicose veins, by injecting a special solution into these vessels. It is a popular method for treating cosmetic issues related to visible vessels on the skin, especially on the legs. Here is some information about sclerotherapy:

How does sclerotherapy work?

Sclerotherapy involves injecting a special solution directly into the blood vessel, causing it to contract and close off. Once closed, the vessel gradually fades away and becomes invisible. This procedure is safe and effective, and most patients experience aesthetic improvement after undergoing it.

Procedure process:

Sclerotherapy is performed in an aesthetic medicine clinic or a medical office by an experienced physician. During the procedure, the physician uses a fine needle to inject the sclerosing solution directly into the blood vessel. Depending on the area and extent of the lesions, multiple injections may be necessary. The procedure is usually minimally painful, but the physician may apply local anesthesia for greater patient comfort.

After the procedure:

After sclerotherapy, it is recommended to wear special compression stockings or bandages to aid in the healing process and prevent bruising. Mild swelling, bruising, or a slight burning sensation may occur at the injection sites. Typically, patients can resume their daily activities without major restrictions.

Effects and results:

The effects of sclerotherapy are usually noticeable after a few weeks or months, depending on individual body response. After several sclerotherapy sessions, most vessels will close off and become invisible. The results are long-lasting, but new vessels may appear in the future, requiring additional treatment sessions.

Contraindications and risks:

Sclerotherapy carries a minimal risk of complications, but there are certain contraindications, such as pregnancy, active skin infections, thromboembolic diseases, sensitivity to the components of the sclerosing solution, or unstable circulatory conditions. It is important to consult with a physician before undergoing the procedure to assess your medical situation and tailor the treatment to your individual needs.

Remember that the above information provides general guidelines about sclerotherapy, but each patient is unique, so it is important to consult with a physician before undergoing the procedure.
