Are There Any Risks?
There are several risks associated with sclerotherapy injections. You should not be pregnant or considering a pregnancy at the time of the treatment. Because only a certain amount of fluid can be safely injected at each visit, the sclerotherapy process will typically take several treatments scheduled about four weeks apart. While we will inject as many veins as possible, if you have many veins to work on, we may not be able to safely treat them all during one session.
Rarely, a small amount of blood may leak into the surrounding tissue as the vessel fades. This causes a faint brown mark or “ghost” where the old blood vessels used to be. This will fade with time; however, it may take several months. Occasionally, the new blood vessels will be formed when the old ones go away. This is a process called “matting”. These can typically be treated with our PhotoDerm laser.
