How effective is sclerotherapy for spider and varicose veins?


Sclerotherapy has fast become one of the leading treatments for spider and varicose veins.  During your consultation with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian at the Santa Monica Vein Center, he will examine your leg and determine whether there is underlying venous reflex using diagnostic tests.  These tests include transillumination, diagnostic ultrasound, and physical examination in the supine and upright position, to determine how medically related the spider and varicose veins are.  If appropriate, Dr. Karamanoukian will recommend in outpatient treatment known as injection sclerotherapy in which small spider veins and varicose veins are injected with a small amount of FDA approved medicine in order to destroy and coagulate the unwanted veins.  Injection sclerotherapy is popular in the United States and in Europe and is touted as one of the leading outpatient techniques for spider vein removal.
