Thank you for your question. I would recommend speaking to the physician who did your sclerotherapy treatment as every physician has their own protocols. Regards,

Hi and thanks for your question. Great question which I would ask you doctor who is doing the sclerotherapy treatment. In general, I would wait at least 6-8 weeks before performing coolsculpting on the same area that underwent sclerotherapy. Good luck.
