Foam sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. Like liquid sclerotherapy, this procedure involves injecting a foamy formulation of a sclerosant medicine into varicose veins that are too large for traditional sclerotherapy. The sclerosant microfoam induces an inflammatory response and makes the varicose veins’ walls stick to each other, turning the varicose veins into hardened tissues eventually metabolized by the body. The vein doctor can effectively treat your varicose veins with a few simple injections.
What to expect during the procedure?
Foam sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive, injectable treatment for superficial varicose veins. This is a simple, in-office procedure performed on an outpatient basis without the use of anesthesia. It concludes within an hour and involves no downtime.
Your vein doctor will use ultrasound technology to identify the diseased varicose veins under your skin’s surface. After identifying the diseased veins, the doctor will prepare a fresh foam sclerosant solution and inject it into the varicose veins.
The vein doctor will use ultrasound guidance to ensure the foam sclerosant enters the targeted varicose veins — and not the healthy veins. The foam sclerosant can flow into the branches of the targeted varicose veins to seal them shut completely.
Foam sclerotherapy concludes within an hour and involves no downtime. You will have to wear compression stockings and avoid heavy lifting, and you may experience mild soreness. But there are no harsh side effects or professional downtime.
