During an injection sclerotherapy procedure, also known as varicose vein obliteration in the lower limbs, a liquid or foamy substance is injected into the dilated surface blood vessels with obstructed blood flow. As a result of local treatment, such blood vessels become closed, eliminating telangiectasias, known as “spider veins”.
Small telangiectasias are also often symptoms of a disease known as chronic venous insufficiency of the lower limb, which results in long-lasting dilation of the veins and the associated elevated venous pressure. Regular sclerotherapy delays the progression of the disease to the 5th and last stage, which is the development of ulcers.
Before every injection sclerotherapy, the Patient is asked to bring her most recent Doppler ultrasound results for lower limb veins and support stockings, which must be put on directly after the procedure in the doctor’s office.
This treatment is performed only in the autumn, winter and early spring.
