Sclerotherapy is done by injecting the veins with a chemical irritant, also called a sclerosant. This chemical causes the lining of the vein to be irritated. When this happens, the veins collapse and are reabsorbed into the body. Sclerotherapy will need to be done in multiple spots for a large vein. Meaning several injections during one, or a series of treatments. Afterwards, a compression stocking will need to be worn for two weeks. You can return to normal activity immediately.
