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
