Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy combines sclerotherapy with ultrasound imaging to aid the precise placement of the sclerotherapy solution inside the veins treated.
Is Sclerotherapy Safe?
Yes. Nearly half a million people are treated every year with rare incidences of complications. Talk to your doctor to understand your options, potential outcomes and risks. SKINovative & CVD uses FDA-approved sclerotherapy solutions only.
Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy:
- is safe
- only takes 20 to 30 minutes in most cases
- is performed in-office
- requires little-to-no downtime
Sclerotherapy closes and collapses spider veins and varicose veins. Thereafter, veins can gradually reduce.
You are NOT eligible for sclerotherapy if you are pregnant. If you have suffered a blood clot in the past, eligibility will be determined on a case by case basis. Your eligibility will depend on the reason of the blood clot and your overall health.
Is Sclerotherapy Painful?
Sclerotherapy for spider veins is uncomfortable but not painful. Some redness and bruising may occur which can fade away in a few days. You may be able to drive yourself home and possibly resume all your regular activities.
When varicose veins are injected with the sclerotherapy solution, a burning sensation may occur. The discomfort may lasts a few minutes. Compression stocking may be required to improve results.
In both case, walking is encouraged, but you should refrain from hot showers, hot tubs and strenuous exercises.
Deep Vein Thrombosis Screening
A screening for deep venous thrombosis or DVT will be performed before your sclerotherapy treatment to ensure you do not suffer from blood clots formations on your legs.
The incidence of blood clotting during sclerotherapy is rare, but we will monitor your treatment progress very carefully. Ruling out a blood clot before, during and after your sclerotherapy treatment is critically important.
