Sclerotherapy And Varicose Veins

Varicose and spider veins removal Brisbane_4If you have varicose veins and spider veins, sclerotherapy is the procedure performed medically to get rid of them. The doctor will inject you with a medical solution through your vein such that the blood vessel lining shrinks and sticks together. In the end, the blood vessel dissolves  and clears from the body.

How effective is sclerotherapy?

This procedure has been in use for long, having started in the 1930s. For all this time, it has been found to be very effective in permanently removing varicose veins and spider veins.

Sclerosing  solution, as noted above, is injected using a very fine needle into the problematic vein. The whole process takes around 20 minutes.

Side effects

You will have some moderate discomfort as well as cramping. This lasts for no more than 2 minutes.

What determines the number of veins one can be injected?

This is determined by:

  • Size of the vein
  • Location
  • Your general health

Where is it performed and who performs it?

Sclerotherapy is performed at our clinic by Dr Chen and Dr Fitzgerald who specializes is varicose and spider vein removal.

Post-operative care

You are required to avoid aerobic exercises some days after sclerotherapy.
