Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat blood vessels or blood vessel malformation and also those of the lymphatic system. A medicine is injected into the vessels, which causes them to shrink.
Treat Spider Veins
The Sclerotherapy procedure is non-surgical, requiring only an injection. It can be used to treat blood and lymph vessel disorders that cause these vessels to form incorrectly. Sclerotherapy uses an irritating solution called a sclerosant which is injected directly into a vein or lymph vessel. The solution irritates the vessel, causing it to swell. This swelling cuts off the flow of blood or lymphatic fluid and the vessel shrinks.
I am so thankful to be able to help patients with Sclerotherpay. Having a patient tell me the aches and swelling are gone and that they are now able to wear shorts or a dress without being self-conscience is very satisfying.
