What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure designed to eliminate small to medium-sized veins that appear close to the skin’s surface. This involves injecting a TGA-approved sclerosing agent, which can be either a liquid or foam solution, directly into the problematic veins. The agent works by irritating the inner lining of the blood vessels, causing them to collapse and eventually fade. Immediate results are often visible, with full effects seen within 6 to 12 weeks.

The Procedure

Consultation: Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Bobby Tajvidi. During this session, Dr. Tajvidi will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and may request imaging tests to assess the condition of your veins and determine your suitability for the procedure.

: Sclerotherapy is an outpatient procedure that does not require anesthesia. We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing and bringing a pair of shorts for easy access to the treatment area. If you have compression stockings, please bring them with you to your appointment.

Injection Process
: During the procedure, you will be comfortably positioned, and the skin over the targeted veins will be cleaned. Dr. Tajvidi will then use a fine needle to inject the sclerosing solution directly into the veins.

Post-Procedure Care
: After the injection, compression stockings are recommended to promote blood flow and enhance the treatment’s effectiveness. You will be instructed to wear compression garments for a specified period following the procedure to ensure optimal results.

Benefits of Sclerotherapy

Cosmetic Enhancement: Sclerotherapy effectively reduces the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins, resulting in smoother, more attractive skin.

Symptom Relief
: In addition to its cosmetic benefits, sclerotherapy can alleviate symptoms associated with venous issues, such as aching, swelling, and discomfort.

Minimally Invasive
: This procedure is minimally invasive, causing minimal pain and requiring a short recovery period compared to traditional surgical interventions.

Convenient Outpatient Procedure
: Sclerotherapy is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.

Potential Side Effects

While sclerotherapy is generally safe, some potential side effects include:

Temporary Discoloration: The treated veins may temporarily darken before fading away.
Bruising: Some patients may experience bruising at the injection site, which typically resolves over time.
Allergic Reactions: Although rare, allergic reactions to the sclerosing agent can occur.
Blood Clots: In extremely rare cases, blood clots may form.
Skin Ulcers: Rarely, skin ulcers may develop at the injection site.
