What is ultrasound guided sclerotherapy?

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive vein treatment used to treat large varicose veins that may not be seen with the naked eye. Ultrasound is a painless technique that allows the physician to see veins that cannot be seen at the surface of the skin. Using ultrasound guidance, the vein that is to be treated can be accessed and a medication, known as a sclerosant, can be injected into the vein. The use of ultrasound ensures that the medication is injected safely into the appropriate vessel.

Sclerotherapy is a treatment that uses medication, called a sclerosant, to cause irritation to the treated area. The inflammatory response that occurs when the sclerosant comes in contact with the tissue being treated, causing the tissue to become “sticky” and allowing other tissues to attach to the treated tissue. Sclerotherapy is used in many aspects of medicine, including the treatment of vein disease.

For the following one to two weeks after foamed sclerotherapy for larger vessels, you may feel or notice:

If you get hyperpigmentation associated with sclerotherapy, it typically fades slowly over several weeks to months. In most cases, hyperpigmentation will eventually fade away; however, on occasion, it can be permanent.
