Sclerotherapy is a highly effective and popular non-surgical treatment for addressing vein conditions. This minimally invasive procedure involves injecting a special solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to shrink, collapse, and eventually fade away. It is a preferred method for treating spider veins and small varicose veins, restoring the appearance of smooth, healthy skin.

Procedure Overview

  • Consultation

    During your initial consultation, Dr. Tawfik will evaluate your veins and review the procedure, addressing any concerns you may have.

  • Preparation

    The area to be treated will be thoroughly cleaned, and you may be asked to stand to facilitate a better view of the veins.

  • Injection

    A fine needle is used to inject a sclerosing agent directly into the affected veins. The solution irritates the lining of the veins, causing them to collapse and eventually fade away.

  • Compression

    Compression stockings or bandages are applied to the treated area to assist in the collapse of the veins and reduce the risk of blood clot formation.

  • Post-procedure care

    This may include avoiding certain activities and wearing compression garments as directed.


Sclerotherapy can cause mild discomfort, often described as a mild burning or stinging sensation during the injections. Most patients find the discomfort very tolerable.

A session typically takes 30-45 minutes. This depends on the number of veins being treated, which also affects how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired results. Most patients will need several sessions, depending on how your body responds to treatment.

While rare, potential side effects of sclerotherapy may include temporary redness, bruising, or slight swelling at the injection sites. These generally resolve within a few days to a few weeks.
