What is visual sclerotherapy? 

Visual Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that is used to treat blood vessel diseases and conditions. It is a non-invasive treatment that involves the injection of a medication into the affected blood vessels. This medication causes the blood vessels to shrink and eventually disappear.

How does visual sclerotherapy work?

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that uses an injection of a solution to cause the collapse of abnormal veins. The solution, which is usually a saltwater or glycerin-based solution, causes an inflammatory reaction in the vein walls. This response triggers the body to form new collagen fibers around the vein. Over time, this will shrink and pull the vein closed.

What can be treated with sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a treatment used to remove varicose veins and spider veins. The procedure involves injecting a solution into the vein that causes it to collapse and be absorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy can be used to treat a variety of vein problems, including:

  • Varicose veins
  • Spider veins
  • Swollen veins
  • Vein clots
  • Bleeding veins

Some factors that may disqualify someone from treatment include pregnancy, a history of blood clots, serious medical conditions, and sensitivity to the sclerotherapy solution. Dr Ahn will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and help you decide if it is the right treatment for you.
