WHAT IS SCLEROTHERAPY?
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerosants are unique chemical compounds that are utilised in the process of sclerotherapy. After being injected into the vein, this chemical compound immediately begins to work on destroying the deepest layer of the wall lining the vein. Your doctor will provide a recommendation regarding which of the many distinct chemical compounds that belong to this family to use depending on the extent of the vein damage and the geographic location of the veins that need to be treated.
The majority of sclerosants are composed of a salt solution that is in liquid form and is easily injectable into small veins. On the other hand, if you have extensive vein networks, your doctor may decide to use a foam sclerosant to treat them. This foam combination ensures that the chemical agent makes contact with all sides of the vein and provides it with additional time to do its work. In addition, certain agents contain a trace quantity of lidocaine to alleviate any discomfort that may be caused by the injection itself.
How Long After Sclerotherapy Do Veins Disappear?
How Many Sclerotherapy Treatments Are Required?
The number of sclerotherapy injection treatments that are necessary is determined not only by the condition of the patient but also by the degree of the vein disease that is being treated. The number of treatments that an individual needs can be affected by factors such as the size, amount, and location of blood vessels, as well as the individual’s response to the treatment.
