Sclerotherapy is a technique employed to manage varicose and spider veins by introducing a substance that minimizes and eventually eradicates them. This treatment triggers an inflammatory response and fosters the creation of scar tissue, thereby shutting down the problematic veins. Prior to the procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleaned, after which a slim needle is used to administer the sclerosing agent. Following the treatment, patients may be advised to wear compression stockings. It’s common for more than one session to be required. While Sclerotherapy is generally safe, it’s not without potential side effects, which may include temporary skin discoloration or swelling. A prior consultation at Studio Medical Aesthetics is vital to evaluate patient suitability for the procedure.
