COMPLICATIONS AND RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH SCLEROTHERAPY
Sclerotherapy is minimally invasive treatment that does not have any of the risks related to a surgical procedure. However, you should know that like any medical treatment, it does have its own set of risks and side effects.
Common side effects
The following is a list of common side effects that may occur. These are all considered temporary.
- swelling, redness and bruising
- before disappearing, treated veins may darken first
- you may also have red bumps at the injection points which will go away in a day or two
Ulcers: These can develop shortly after your treatment and may be resolved with additional treatment.
Inflammation: Sometimes, blood vessels may become inflamed. This can be resolved with medication or heat.
Blood clots and deep vein thrombosis
Hyperpigmentation: This is a higher risk in patients with darker skin tones.
Allergic reaction: It is rare for patients to experience an allergic reaction.
