How Sclerotherapy works?
The solution causes the walls of the injected vein to seal shut, so blood is redirected to unaffected veins. Over time, your body absorbs the damaged vein, making it less visible.
How do I prepare for Sclerotherapy?
A few days before the procedure, your provider will recommend that you avoid certain medication, such as ibuprofen and aspirin. This will help reduce the risk of bruising.
You will want to purchase a compression stocking. You will be required to wear one for several days after the procedure.
What should I expect after Sclerotherapy?
You should use acetaminophen pain medicine for any discomfort. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen can affect your blood’s clotting process.
No jogging, swimming or other high impact physical activities for 7-10 days after treatment. Any form of heat must be limited for 24 hours after the treatment such as saunas or hot baths.
Sun exposure must be limited for 2-4 weeks after treatment. If necessary to be in the sun, use SPF 30 or greater sunscreen at all times.
