How Is Sclerotherapy Performed?
1. The procedure
You will lay with your legs up. The doctor will clean the area and inject it with the solution. You may feel a little pinch.
2. After the injection
The doctor will massage the area to avoid blood from getting into the treated vein. They will ask you to wear compression socks.
If you have several affected veins, you may need various sclerotherapy sessions. You will discuss this with your doctor before starting the treatment.
What To Expect After Sclerotherapy
You may return to your normal activities after the sclerotherapy session. However, you must wear compression stockings for the first 24 hours.
You should also stay active to prevent the formation of blood clots from forming. Other recommendations include using acetaminophen to treat pain, and avoiding sunlight, saunas, and hot baths.SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
