How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

When you have sclerotherapy treatment, a liquid material is injected into the affected vein to close up the vein. Once the affected vein is closed, it will dry up and fade away over time.

Sclerotherapy offers many important benefits. Sclerotherapy is:

  • Minimally invasive treatment because it requires no surgical incisions or sutures

  • Effective treatment because you will see results in as little as 3 to 6 weeks
