Eliminate Your Varicose and Spider Veins With Skillfully Administered Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is an advanced, effective and minimally invasive treatment for varicose and spider veins. Most sclerotherapy sessions take less than an hour to perform and allow you to return to your daily routine afterward. Dr. Martin Franklin and his staff have years of experience administering sclerotherapy, which have given them the fine touch necessary to maximize your comfort during treatment. As a result, you can expect a straightforward procedure and excellent results.

An Effective, Advanced Solution to Varicose and Spider Veins

Our vein doctor or one of his trained staff members will inject a chemical substance called a sclerosant into your varicose or spider veins. Administered in either liquid or foam form depending on your individual treatment needs, the sclerosant irritates the vein wall and causes it to close off. Your body then automatically reroutes the blood to other nearby veins and the diseased vein turns to scar tissue that is reabsorbed over the next few weeks.

A Brief Synopsis Of Your Sclerotherapy Procedure

Dr. Franklin or staff will use an ultrasound machine or a vein illumination light to precisely guide each sclerosant injection into your varicose or spider vein. After the injections are finished, Arnicare cream is massaged into the treated area to increase the coverage of the sclerosant, improving its effect and soothing the legs. Negative reactions are extremely rare. Finally, you’ll be encouraged to walk around to promote blood flow, which further disperses the sclerosant, decreases your side effects, and increases your treatment’s effectiveness.

Give Yourself The Best Chance At Freedom From Vein Disease

It’s important that you understand and follow all of your pre-procedure instructions before undergoing your sclerotherapy treatment. Over his years of vein care, Dr. Franklin has crafted his procedure process to maximize effectiveness while taking your individual needs into account. Make sure to follow his instructions carefully, to give yourself the best opportunity for a life without varicose and spider veins. If these steps are not followed, your vein treatment may need to be rescheduled.

Sclerotherapy Side Effects Are Usually Quite Mild and Highly Manageable

Typical side effects usually resolve without issue. You may experience some of the following:


Raised red areas

Small skin sores

Darkened lines or spots on the skin

Multiple tiny red blood vessels

Although unlikely, sometimes more serious side effects can occur that require medical attention, such as:


Blood clots

Air bubbles

Allergic reaction

However, for most people sclerotherapy is a fast and effective way to finally end the pain and embarrassment caused by varicose and spider veins.
