Dr. Carolyn Jacob offers Sclerotherapy in Chicago, IL

About Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy treats varicose veins, spider veins and blood vessel malformations by causing the target vein and any feeder veins to shrink and dissolve, eventually leaving skin vein-free. Typically, a sclerosing solution is injected into the vessels, causing them to immediately shrink, close off and eventually disappear. Several treatments may be necessary to get desired results. Results are long term and while new spider veins may form, veins that have been treated with sclerotherapy should not return.
