I have been undergoing sclerotherapy for many years. I go once a year and have polidoconal injections and my legs look great for the summer. I have very weak veins, and I have found that if you have weak veins, you have to return for follow up treatments. I am extremely happy with the results. My doctor has recommended that I wear sheer support panty hose daily to prevent broken veins.

It has been over a week and my legs are doing great, and there is no pain whatsoever. Since my veins break so easily, I am going to continue to wear the heavy prescription panty hose as long as I can. My doctor said I could take them off at night. I actually return March 15th for a second session since I have quite a few spider veins. I think two sessions will be enough. I will then look forward to a spring and summer without those unsightly veins. I will do as my doctor advised and wear the lighter support hose when at home, shopping, etc.

It has been a little over seventeen days since I had my first treatment, and my legs are almost completely healed. I will return for my second treatment on March 14th. My doctor will inject any smaller veins remaining. I have been wearing the light support hose during the day per my doctor's request. Keep in mind, I have very weak veins, so I have to take special care of my legs. I am very excited that I will be able to capris and shorts this summer without embarrassment.

I am very excited, I went to my second appointment for my sclerotherapy treatment on March 14th. I did not have as many injections on the second treatment since most of the unsightly ones were taken care of the first treatment. I have not had any adverse reactions whatsoever. Remember, I had the polydocanal liquid injections. I do not have the saline injections since I tend to get ulcerations with saline. I have never had ulcerations with polydoconal. I have healed quickly, and just have a little bruising remains. I would highly recommend sclerotherapy treatment for your veins, and not laser...I have had both. Laser did not work, and it is very painful. It actually made a veins worse. I would suggest finding a doctor or nurse with years of experience in Sclerotherapy. I would also suggest not putting off the treatment. Once the veins start to break, they get worse. I will be wearing my swimsuit and shorts this summer!

Returned for one more treatment

As I said, my veins break very easy...so, I am a regular at Dr. Craddock's office. I am in the process of losing some weight, which will help my veins more than anything! I returned for more injections on September 10, 2013. I had a few difficult areas, especially around the area where I had an EVLT treatment a couple of years ago. Dr. Craddock used a stronger solution of the Asclera (Polidocanol) and it felt that he went deeper into those veins. Wow, I can already see a major difference. Dr. Craddock wears big circular thing around his head which magnifies the veins. This, I'm sue places the solution directly into the view and would eliminate any ulceration problems. I have had no problems, and I make sure I follow my aftercare instructions. I continue to wear the support hose when I am doing heavy housework or working out. If you have ever considered having sclerotherapy, now is the time to go, during the winter months. You will thank me next summer!!!
