Sclerotherapy

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a technique which is very effective in the treatment of unwanted leg veins. It involves injecting a solution into dilated and visible veins in order to cause them to scar on the inside. Once injected, the vein becomes ‘plugged’, blocking the flow of blood within it and therefore making it invisible. Because of the many connections between surface veins and deep veins, this does not lead to any significant circulatory problems. Normally a number of treatment sessions are required to obtain a good cosmetic result. Some varicose vein problems are best treated surgically and it is important for you to consult with your LaserMed™ Physician in order to arrive at an optimal treatment strategy.
