This is a treatment process where a chemical solution is injected into the varicose or spider veins. This solution causes irritation and damage to the veins injected, causing them to shrink and disappear over several weeks to months. Each vein or group of spiders may require multiple injections (up to six but usually 2 to 3) about six weeks apart. About 10% of veins may never disappear with sclerotherapy despite repeated injections. Although easy and relatively safe, accurate injections into the veins are important, as accidental injection outside the vein may cause serious side-effects. This method is best for spider and reticular veins and for smaller varicose veins. It is not a good choice for large varicose veins. Currently, this is the dominant form (apart from vein stripping) of treament patients in Cebu City undergo. We will also introduce microsclerotherapy with the use of vein lite which is not routinely done in Cebu City.
