VARICOSE VEINS INJECTIONS

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used in the treatment of varicose veins.  Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution or 'sclerosant' directly into the vein.  This solution 'scleroses' the vein - that is, irritates the inner vein walls causing them to thicken and seal off the vein.  Gradually the body converts the sclerosed vein into scar tissue which cannot be seen or felt.
