Polidochanol dosage for sclerotherapy - ABVLM and Vein Specialists

The dose is no more than 10 cc of the 1% solution. This is a safe dose when administered by an experienced vein specialist. Seek a specialist certified by the American College of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. 

Polidocanol max dosage

According to the Asclera (Polidocanol) package insert, the maximum dosage per sclerotherapy session is 10 mL.  The package insert specifies this for either the 0.5% or 1% solutions.
