- The process of sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a treatment that induces thrombosis and fibrosis by injuring the vascular lining by injecting foreign substances into the blood vessels.
It is best to wear a skirt or comfortable pants before visiting.
First, through doppler ultrasound examination, we check backflow of deep venous blood vein, femoral vein, and great saphenous vein.
Before the procedure, keep standing for about 10 to 20 minutes, and Evita’s specialized vascular surgeon will design the treatment area.
Depending on the size of the blood vessels, an appropriate concentration of the curing agent is injected.
There is also a case where the varicose veins are deep enough to be invisible to the naked eye is looked for by a vascular ultrasonic wave to find a blood vessel to be treated and a precise curing treatment is performed after confirming that the needle is located in the veins to be treated correctly. This is called “Ultrasound-induced sclerotherapy”.
After the injection, compressure is applied with bandage and tape.
(If you have compression stockings for varicose vein, you should bring it.)
The veins that are hardened by the sclero-agents slowly disappear over time.
Some patients may show brown pigmentation along their original varicose veins when treated with sclerotherapy, but they usually disappear after 6 months.
Depending on the severity, the number of treatments will be determined and you will visit our clinic 3-5 times until the end of treatment.
