Sclerotherapy

OHSU Plastic Surgery and the Vein Clinic offer treatment for patients with minor to moderate varicose and spider veins (sclerotherapy).For patients with minor to moderate varicose and spider veins, sclerotherapy is one of the most common and affordable minimally invasive in-office procedures. The procedures involve injecting FDA-approved medicine into the vein(s) to help resolve painful symptoms and unsightly discoloration and bulges of the veins in the legs. The length of the procedure and number of injections will vary based on the pre-determined treatment plan as well as the severity of the disorder. Once treatment is complete, the use of compression stockings for two weeks to aid in healing is recommended.
