Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive medical procedure commonly used to treat varicose and spider veins. It is often performed in vein clinics or by vascular specialists. The procedure involves injecting a solution (sclerosant) directly into the affected veins. This solution irritates the inner lining of the veins, causing them to collapse, seal shut, and eventually be reabsorbed by the body.

Our experienced medical team, led by board-certified physician Dr. David Pinsinski, has performed numerous varicose vein treatments in Westminster. We are dedicated to helping our patients ease pain, improve circulation, and reduce the visibility of their veins.

How Sclerotherapy Helps Varicose Veins

Sclerotherapy is effective for treating small to medium-sized varicose veins and spider veins. Varicose veins are larger, twisted veins that often cause discomfort, pain, or cosmetic concerns. Spider veins are smaller, web-like veins that are visible just beneath the skin’s surface and are often a cosmetic concern.


The benefits of Sclerotherapy include:
  • Non-Surgical
  • Minimally-Invasive
  • Outpatient Procedure
  • Cosmetic Improvement

How Sclerotherapy Works

During sclerotherapy, performed by Dr. Pinsinski, a sclerosant solution is injected into targeted veins using a fine needle. This solution irritates vein walls, causing them to collapse and seal shut. Compression may be applied to enhance effectiveness.

The procedure is relatively quick and minimally painful, with patients able to resume normal activities afterward. The treated veins gradually fade over weeks as they’re reabsorbed by the body. Multiple sessions might be needed for optimal results, depending on the extent of the condition. It’s crucial to consult a healthcare provider for a thorough assessment and guidance on this procedure.

Post-Procedure Care

After the procedure, you may be asked to remain in the clinic for a short period to ensure there are no immediate complications. This allows the healthcare provider to monitor your response to the treatment and address any concerns you may have.

Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure, although strenuous exercise and prolonged standing should be avoided for a few days. You might be instructed to wear compression stockings for a specified period to aid in healing and optimize results. The treated veins will gradually fade over the following weeks as they are absorbed by the body.
