It is a standard treatment used for many years.
The principle is to use a chemical (called sclerosant), which will destroy the interior of the wall of the vessel that bothers you.
The injection is made directly into the vein to be treated, a feeling of heat can be observed during the injection of the product.
The varicosity will therefore disappear after a few weeks.
The injection may be slightly painful, but the spread of the product is generally painless.

The expected result:

  • Elimination of small vessels of the legs considered unsightly.

Things you should know:

  • No anesthesia is necessary for this type of treatment.
  • A cotton pad will be applied to each needle inlet to compress the treated area and thereby optimize the results. It is advisable to leave these dressings at least 2 hours after the session.
  • In the days that follow, we can sometimes observe a small bruise at the injection site.
  • After the treatment you should not practice any sport for at least 24 hours, sometimes more if the treated vein is important.
  • No sun exposure is desired until complete healing and the disappearance of possible small hematomas.
  • Some patients may be referred to NdYag vascular laser sessions to supplement their treatment.
  • No treatment is given during breastfeeding, pregnancy or in case of allergy to the sclerosing product.
  • Duration of treatment: 30 minutes per session.
  • Three to four sessions, spaced at least a month apart.
  • A maintenance session is necessary every 2 to 5 years.
