Varicose Sclerosis is a procedure by which specific medication is injected directly into the varicose veins of one or both legs, causing them to fold, dry out, or disappear. This is a simple procedure, which allows you to carry out even the usual activities after the procedure, just having to wear elastic bandages for 4 hours as part of the treatment.
The dosage in this procedure depends on the needs of each patient, and also of the number of veins wanted to be treated. There is no specific area in which to start the treatment, that will depend on the patient’s decision.
The total number of sessions depends on the state and/or degree of dilation of the veins themselves, as well as patient expectations. However, this and other concerns may be clarified during your first appointment.
Some side effects that can occur at the injection area include the following:
These side effects usually go away after a few days or after several weeks. Some side effects can go away completely in months, or even years.
