Sclerotherapy San Diego - Everything You Need to Know

In sclerotherapy, a state-of-the-art foam material is injected with a tiny needle into the vein that causes inflammation and the vein walls to collapse. Compression stockings are then used to make sure that the vein walls stay collapsed. The vein gradually dissolves over several weeks and ultimately disappears.

Sclerotherapy treatment is the “gold standard” and is preferred over laser for eliminating large spider veins (telangiectasia) and smaller varicose leg veins. Unlike a laser, the sclerosing solution additionally closes the “feeder veins” under the skin that are causing the spider veins to form, thereby making a recurrence of the spider veins in the treated area less likely.

Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy treatment is an alternative to treat veins that are too small or too tortuous to treat with a laser or R.F.Closure. In addition it is a new treatment for patients with previous vein stripping or recurrent disease. This advanced vein treatment uses ultrasound technology to guide injections of a solution that closes the vein at the precise source of the disease. Besides it is an extremely effective treatment for perforator veins (the veins connecting the deep veins to the saphenous veins).
