Side effects after sclerotherapy

Side effects after sclerotherapy are possible but very rare.  

Side effects may include burning, itching, skin discoloration, bleeding at the injection site and infection.  These symptoms will fade away in a short period of time.  Some patients will only need one session to get rid of the veins, but it can be a reoccuring problem, so several sessions may be needed.  This depends on

the patient’s tolerance and how many veins are present. Make a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon or vein specialist to go over any questions or concerns you may have.
