What Is Foam Sclerotherapy?
Foam sclerotherapy is minimally invasive and can be performed right in our clinic. It is a safe and effective alternative to surgery for treating varicose veins and spider veins. The foam solution used in the medical procedure combines a sclerosing agent with air or gas. A sclerosing agent is a chemical substance that is injected into a vein or other tissue to cause it to become inflamed and eventually scarred. The subsequent scarring helps to seal off the affected blood vessels or tissue, preventing blood flow within the unhealthy vein. Our vein specialists inject the foam solution directly into your affected vein, causing it to collapse and eventually be reabsorbed by the body.
