What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a procedure which is used to eliminate spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (sclerovein 1%) directly into the vein. This solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel will turn into scar tissue that eventually fades from view.
Who is eligible for sclerotherapy?
There will have an initial consultation Dr Dilawar Singh who will decide if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
You will not be eligible if you are pregnant, suffering from bleeding disorder or on blood thinners. You can have sclerotherapy if you take contraceptive pills.
