What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment used for varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting an unwanted vein with a saline solution.

How does it work?
The injectable solutions that we use at our clinic are called Tromboject® or Sclerodex®. They contain sodium chloride and, when injected into the unwanted vein, this solution causes the vein wall to collapse, stick together, and close.
Sclerotherapy is a very effective way to treat unwanted veins and most patients can expect to see a 50 to 90 percent improvement with a series of 3-12 treatments, depending on the severity of the condition. Compression stockings are a necessary follow up after sclerotherapy to ensure your treatment’s efficacy.
At ArtMed, we carry both Sigvaris and Achi brand compression wear. See here for more details.
