Liquide sclerotherapy

is an injections procedure used for patients with spider or small varicose veins.


Sclerotherapy is a fully FDA approved, minimally invasive vein treatment used to eliminate spider and small varicose veins in the legs. Abnormal veins are treated with a concentrated solution using a very small needle resulting in only mild discomfort. Various solutions, usually saline-based, are injected by the physician specialist into the varicose veins, to “irritate” the vein walls. This causes a scarring reaction which then causes the vein walls to stick together. Within a few weeks, the veins are “sclerosed” under the skin, and disappear without a trace. All procedures cause unsightly veins to gradually shrink and fade away.

Sclerotherapy treatments can take 15 to 30 minutes depending on size and location(s) of the treatment area.

The number of sessions depends on the extent of the varicose vein issue and the applicable treatment. A typical patient requires two to six sclerotherapy treatments.

Patients report that sclerotherapy is comparable to a mosquito bite, and it may leave some sensitivity for a day or two, like a bruise.

Injections around the knees and ankles can cause mild swelling that will disappear after a few days. Patients should avoid sun exposure to treated areas for at least two weeks following therapy.

  • Larger injected veins may become lumpy or hard for several months before getting better.
  • Raised, red areas may appear at the injection sites and should disappear within a few days.
  • Bruising may occur around the injection site and can last several days or weeks.
  • Temporary tiny blood vessels may develop at the treated area. This is called revascularization, “flares,” “mats,” or “blushing.” They may appear days or weeks after the procedure but should fade within a few months and usually do not require further treatment.
  • Allergic reactions to the sclerosing agent may occur at the time of the injection and are rarely serious. Symptoms include itching and swelling.
