At Reno Vein Clinic, our expert doctors, Dr. Robert Merchant and Dr. John Daake provide tailored solutions to your vein health needs. Many times we get asked about sclerotherapy and its effectiveness. If you are one of the many people who suffer from spider veins, sclerotherapy can be the best option to eliminate them safely and effectively.
Curious how sclerotherapy is performed?
Sclerotherapy is non-invasive treatment that is done in a clinic setting, which means you do not need to go to a hospital to receive this procedure. A saline or chemical solution is injected directly into the damaged spider vein and closes off the vein. Once the vein is closed, blood supply is cut off to the problem vein and will be naturally absorbed by your body… resulting in diminished appearance of spider veins!
Following the procedure, you’ll be asked to wear compression stockings to speed healing. You may experience some mild cramping the first day or two following the procedure, but you won’t require a prescription medication for pain control. You may also notice some bruising and discoloration.
To completely remove your spider veins, you may require multiple treatments, generally spaced several weeks apart.
