Sclerotherapy is one of the most advanced treatments for correcting the cosmetic appearance of varicose and spider veins available. It’s prized for its excellent results and is a frequent treatment choice especially for treating small varicose veins and addressing painful symptoms that may occur such as aching, swelling, and more.
At Vein Center Doctor, residents in New Jersey and New York can receive treatment for unsightly veins and prevent the effects of damaged veins on your everyday life. Bring back smooth and vein-free skin here in your area’s most trusted vein clinic.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that involves injecting a sclerosing agent solution or suspension is directly administered into the vein damaged. This causes the damaged portion of the vein to scar and seal off. In the process, blood is redirected through healthier veins to continue blood flow. Afterward, the collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and, over time, fades away. No surgery is required, as the veins will be absorbed into your body on their own.
This is necessary because of damaged veins that can cause both varicose veins and spider veins. Veins are blood vessels responsible for pumping blood back to your heart using one-way valves. Because of aging, injury, obesity, hormone changes, or many other potential causes, your veins or valves may be weak or damaged. As a result, blood can’t flow normally back to the heart, and the blood can pool and either cause spider veins (visible red, purple, or blue lines visible through your skin) or varicose veins (swollen and raised blood vessels that are twisted with one another and can cause cramping, ulcers, deep vein thrombosis, and other conditions). Though these venous conditions often appear on your legs, they can also appear in different areas of your body.
Sclerotherapy is our most popular treatment for spider veins. At the Vein Center Doctors, Dr. Rahul Sood has carried out thousands of vein procedures as one of the area’s most known sclerotherapy specialists. If you’re experiencing spider veins or varicose veins, Dr. Sood will gladly give you a complimentary consultation and customize a treatment plan that may include sclerotherapy, which is often covered by insurance. Your treatment plan can also include other non-surgical treatments or vascular surgery.
Both varicose veins and spider veins have similar root issues in the sense that their vein’s valves aren’t working properly and affect blood flow from moving properly through the vein. While spider veins are painless, relatively harmless, and are mainly treated for cosmetic purposes, varicose veins can also have potential risks. It results in swollen veins that are raised on the skin, which can trigger varying levels of pain for patients. If left untreated, your veins’ condition can get worse and develop into a number of risks like infections or ulcers.
Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment option for most patients who want to treat their venous conditions. Aside from pregnant women and patients with special conditions, most people can be safe candidates for sclerotherapy, which you can discuss during your initial consultation.

You may experience minimal side effects that are normal from injection procedures (like temporary swelling, inflammation, redness, and irritation). Mild discomfort should resolve within several days after the procedure.
A: We recommend wearing compression stockings for three days after your procedure. This is to increase pressure and improve blood flow in the area and compress your veins to improve and quicken the healing process.
You may experience minor side effects from the injection, such as swelling, inflammation, bleeding, and redness. You can use home remedies like over-the-counter pain relievers (like Ibuprofen and Tylenol) or cold packs to treat these side effects. We recommend scheduling a follow-up treatment after two weeks if you’re experiencing more moderate symptoms. You may also need to schedule additional sclerotherapy sessions to achieve the results you want.
