Hand Sclerotherapy. I have hard, solid, clotted lumps on hands after 5 weeks causing discoloration. Is this normal?

I would suggest evacuation of any residual clot to prevent phlebolith formation. Our office specializes in vein treatments in Los Angeles.

It can take several months for those hard lumps to be broken down and absorbed especially if the veins were large and high pressured. Often times I bring patients back after a few weeks and evacuate that trapped blood using a needle. This usually helps the vein break down faster and also gives the patient some symptomatic relief. You should be seen in follow up by your provider to see if this is an option for you.
yes this can be normal bumps and discoloration are normal for 3 to 6 months after sclerotherapy. Additionally some discoloration can be permanent after sclerotherapy. Hand fillers such as radiesse are often less cosmetically disruptive than sclerotherapy on the hand
