Sclerotherapy for foot veins.
Over the years I have changed from using liquid to using almost exclusively foam sclerotherapy unless there is a patient who cannot have foam. The concentration of the foam depends on the veins being treated with the larger veins requiring a higher concentration. I usually treat as many veins an feasible in one session.
Sclerotherapy Results and Types
If someone is well trained in sclerotherapy they shoudl be able to treat these areas with different agents. I find that foaming and asclera do the best in my hands. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
What type of sclerotherapy technique ?
Of course it makes a big difference and it would take a thorough consultation to determine what would be most appropriate for you, liquid or foam, which product (Polidochanol, STS, etc for foam), liquid (hypertonic saline, glycerin, ethanolamine, etc etc etc) and in which veins (spider, reticular or varicose) .... as well as a discussion of unique side effects for each sclerosant type and technique and post procedure treatment and expected outcomes ....
Seek an ABVLM certified vein specialist for consultation, evaluation, examination, Duplex vein scan and treatment.
