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.
