Dr. Randall Juleff MD, FACS, a triple board-certified vein specialist at La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center, recommends Sclerotherapy for patients in Louisiana to get rid of spider and varicose veins. Dr. Randall Juleff performs Venous Sclerotherapy by injecting a specialized chemical solution, known as a Sclerosant, into the veins to close and seal your spider or varicose veins, leaving you with smooth, clear skin. It also helps you in alleviating other symptoms associated with spider and varicose veins, like leg cramps and aches.

What are the FAQs Patients Ask About Sclerotherapy Treatment?

What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that treats varicose and spider veins, usually on your legs. It involves injecting a solution directly into your affected veins, causing them to shrink, collapse, and eventually fade away.

It is a quick and virtually pain-free treatment for varicose and spider veins. Dr. Juleff injects a Chemical Solution called Sclerosant, into your vein that causes your vein to close, preventing future abnormal blood flow through that particular vein. The closed vein is eventually absorbed by your body. When the vein is closed, your blood reroutes through healthy veins.

It reduces the appearance of unwanted spider and varicose veins. It also reduces any associated symptoms, such as aches, swelling, and burning sensations in your legs.

What happens during sclerotherapy?

During the treatment, Dr. Juleff numbs your leg with local anesthetics then he uses a needle to inject the Sclerosant into your varicose veins. Dr. Juleff typically uses Sotradecol® or Polidocanol®.

The Sclerosant irritates your vein and causes swelling, which closes the vein and prevents any more blood from moving through it. The chemical also causes scar tissue to form, which permanently closes the vein. Over time, your body absorbs the closed vein.

If your varicose veins are located deeper in your skin and are difficult to see on the surface, Dr. Juleff uses ultrasound imaging to select the best injection site for your treatment.

After your treatment, Dr. Juleff covers the injection site and puts a compression stocking on your treated leg.

How should I take care of my legs after sclerotherapy treatment?

Sclerotherapy is a safe and outpatient procedure, and you can go home and rest after treatment. Because a local anesthetic is applied to your leg, you may want to have someone else drive you home. Dr. Juleff provides personalized aftercare instructions to support the healing and successful closure of your varicose veins.

After sclerotherapy, you can get right back to your normal activities. In fact, you’ll need to walk around regularly to prevent blood clots from forming. However, you may want to avoid strenuous exercise and sun exposure for about two weeks following treatment. You will also wear compression stockings for about two weeks to promote healthy circulation and healing.
