Sclerotherapy is the treatment used at ENRICH clinic to eliminate varicose veins, or spider veins.
What happens during treatment?
The procedure is performed by one of our highly-trained doctors and takes approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on the number of veins that require treatment.
Treatment usually consists of multiple tiny injections, depending on the extent of the problem. The solution that is injected into the veins is known as a sclerosant.
How many treatments are required?
Often, between 3-5 treatments may be required, depending on the extent of the varicose veins and the individual. This is because some of the veins may re-open and require re-treating. However, each treatment session yields a significant benefit.
Treatments are spaced six weeks apart.
Maintenance treatments may also be required. This is because veins can re-open and new vessels can form over time.
Success can be improved with avoiding prolonged standing, maintaining adequate body weight and regular exercise.
When are results seen?
It can take several weeks for maximum benefit to be seen after each treatment session.
