Foam Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins & Varicose Veins

An Effective Vein Treatment for Visible Veins

Spider veins before and after foam sclerotherapy

Foam Sclerotherapy is a new and successful procedure that helps treat large varicose veins and spider veins. Certainly, this procedure is minimally invasive and painless. Furthermore, Dr. Wright recommends this procedure for anyone that has bulging varicose veins. In addition, this treatment provides faster results with fewer treatments.

The Foam Sclerotherapy Procedure

During the procedure, we inject a foam substance into the vein. Additionally, the foam only attaches to the inside of the vein walls and does not filter into the blood. This way, the foam stays inside the veins for a longer period of time. In short, this causes the vein to dissolve and disappear. However, Foam sclerotherapy for spider veins is not a general anesthetic operation. Above all, the treatment will only take 30-40 minutes. After the procedure, there will be no sign of bruising and scarring. Another positive is that there is no downtime following the procedure. In other words, patients can even return to work the same day.

Following the foam sclerotherapy procedure, we fit patients with pressure bandages. They wear these bandages for 12-24 hours in order to keep the vein walls closed. After that, patients can then wear pressure stockings for about 2 weeks for best results.
