Sclerotherapy

In addition to our advanced laser treatments, Orlando Skin Solutions often treats both varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy. This proven treatment has been in use for decades. Sclerotherapy involves multiple injections of a mild sclerosing solution directly into the affected veins with a fine needle. The solution irritates the walls of the veins causing them to stick together, collapse, and eventually be absorbed by the body. After the injections, compression hose are worn continuously for the first 24 hours, then daily for 2 weeks. The procedure is practically painless and requires only about 30 minutes to complete.

There is no downtime needed after sclerotherapy, so you can return to your normal activities right after your treatment. You will be given specific post-treatment instructions, which may include:

  • Walking every day
  • Wearing compression stockings
  • Elevating your legs
  • Avoiding exposure to the sun

Bruising and hyperpigmentation may occur after sclerotherapy. Bruising typically disappears within 1 to 2 weeks. While the hyperpigmentation usually fades, it can persist for several months. Most patients require multiple treatments for complete results. We often see patients for touch-up treatments once or twice a year as new veins appear.
