Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that involves the injection of a special solution into damaged or diseased veins to help them shrink and eventually disappear. The solution causes irritation and inflammation in the vein’s walls, which leads to the formation of scar tissue. Over time, the scar tissue causes the vein to close off and fade away.

Sclerotherapy is commonly used to treat varicose veins and spider veins, which are small, twisted blood vessels that are visible on the skin’s surface. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis and is minimally invasive, meaning that no incisions or sutures are required.

Sclerotherapy has been used for several decades and is considered a safe and effective treatment for many types of vascular conditions. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, and potential risks and side effects will be discussed with Dr.Corona including post-care treatment. 

After sclerotherapy treatment, it is normal to experience some mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the treated area. You may also notice some redness or discoloration of the skin, and in some cases, the treated veins may appear more prominent before they eventually fade away.

In general, the recovery period after sclerotherapy is relatively short, and most people are able to resume their normal activities within a day or two. However, it may recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise and prolonged standing or sitting for a few days after the procedure to allow the treated veins to heal properly. In most cases, it is recommended to wear compression stockings for a few days or weeks after the procedure to help reduce swelling and improve blood flow. You should also avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight or hot water for a few days after the procedure, as this can increase the risk of complications.

It’s important to follow your post care instructions carefully after sclerotherapy to ensure the best possible outcome and minimize the risk of complications. Any unusual symptoms or complications, such as severe pain, bleeding, or infection, be sure to contact the clinic right away.
