Patient Information


Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive procedure where a medical sclerosant detergent solution is injected into the damaged vein. The veins then dissolve and disappear as the body gradually absorbs them. It is recommended that following treatment patients wear compression stockings for a short period of time. A follow-up visit will then be scheduled to review progress and continue the procedure if required.

Sclerotherapy in Melbourne, Frankston, Mornington Peninsula & Warragul

Sclerotherapy is considered an effective treatment for the removal of spider veins and compliments the removal of varicose veins. To determine whether a patient is likely to benefit from sclerotherapy, the site of the defective vein as well as the venous drainage pattern is first identified using special ultrasound techniques. 

As sclerotherapy utilises very fine needles, there is minimal to no discomfort throughout the procedure, depending on the patient’s individual pain threshold.  As no surgery is required, recovery time is quick, allowing patients to return to their normal daily activities as quickly as possible.
