FDA-Approved Medicine

An FDA-approved medicine called Asclera™ or polidocanol is injected into the vein using a fine needle. The vein becomes irritated from the solution, causing it to collapse and absorb into the body. The procedure can be done in the office and is suitable for many types of veins.

What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive medical procedure that involves injecting a solution into affected veins to shrink and close them. The different types of sclerotherapy offered include liquid sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. All of these types have been FDA-approved for treating varicose and spider veins. After the sclerotherapy procedure, there is no downtime, and you can resume your usual activities immediately. However, to achieve optimal results, your vein doctor may recommend wearing compression stockings for a variable length of time.

How Effective Is Sclerotherapy?

For cosmetic spider veins, sclerotherapy is the preferred method of treatment. Patients can expect to see significant improvement within 6-8 weeks after the initial injection. However, some patients may require two or three treatment sessions for optimal results. The key to success is finding the best sclerotherapy treatment for each individual.

Suitable for Almost All Patients

Our experienced vein doctors will thoroughly evaluate your individual condition and personal preferences during your consultation to determine the most suitable method of sclerotherapy for you. Following sclerotherapy treatment, patients typically notice significant improvements in spider veins.

Sclerotherapy Treatment Options

Sclerotherapy treatment for spider and varicose veins is tailored to each patient’s condition. Our vein doctors will select the right preparation of sclerotherapy based on the severity of your vein disease and how you want to treat your spider veins.

Liquid Sclerotherapy

This is the most basic form of sclerotherapy treatment and involves direct injections of the liquid solution into the affected veins. This form is best suited for smaller spider veins, as it is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. The liquid solution causes the veins to shrink and eventually disappear, resulting in smoother, clearer skin.

Foam Sclerotherapy

During this treatment, small amounts of liquid solution are mixed with air to create a foamy, cream-like substance. This allows for greater activity against the diseased veins. Foam sclerotherapy is 5x as potent as liquid sclerotherapy and an effective treatment for treating slightly larger feeder veins and venulectasias.

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

For varicose veins that are difficult to see, as well as large superficial veins, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy can improve precision and accuracy where other techniques cannot. This technique requires more patience and skill on the vein doctor’s part. Vein Specialist Centers has American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) certified technicians and physicians to successfully perform ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy techniques. ARDMS is the recognized standard for excellence in ultrasound.

How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost?

Sclerotherapy has indications in both cosmetic treatments and those that are medically necessary. At your initial consultation, the vein specialist will assess for underlying venous insufficiency and the likelihood of insurance coverage. Cosmetic treatments are not covered through insurance. Most procedures run between 15 minutes and 1 hour for cosmetic sclerotherapy. The average cost for cosmetic sclerotherapy in NJ is $300-$1200.
