Sclerotherapy
Treatment In
Lynchburg

Certain medications are to be avoided prior
to Sclerotherapy, such as aspirin, ibuprofen,
or other anti-inflammatory drugs.

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins by injecting a solution (usually a salt solution) directly into the vein. By irritating the blood vessel lining, the solution causes the vein to collapse and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel will turn into scar tissue that fades from view. The number of veins that can be injected at any one time depends on the size and locations of the veins to be injected and the overall medical condition of the patient.

If the follow side effects occur, contact your doctor immediate: inflammation within five inches of the groin, a sudden onset of swollen leg, and formation of sores at the injection site.
