Treatment snapshot

Tired of being embarrassed by spider veins or small varicose veins? Azure Medical has the solution: Sclerotherapy.

Sclerotherapy is a proven medical procedure, used to since the 1930’s to treat small varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a special solution into your vein with a very fine needle. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. It is a simple, relatively inexpensive procedure that does not require going to hospital or long downtime.

We are pleased to say the majority of patients who receive sclerotherapy treatment are cleared of their varicosities or have significant visible improvement. Treatments range from one to 6, with the average number being 3 or 4. Individual veins usually require one to 3 treatments.

Like any medical treatment, there is no guarantee that sclerotherapy will be effective in every case. Approximately 10 % of patients who undergo sclerotherapy have poor to fair results (“poor results” indicating that the veins have not disappeared after six treatments). In extremely rare cases, the patient’s condition may become worse after sclerotherapy treatment. Your doctor is there to help, so if you have questions or concerns, please ask.
