Sclerosing varicose veins
In this treatment we make the vein shrivel (sclerosis) by injecting a special liquid into it. That is why this treatment is also called ‘spraying away’.
A liquid is injected into the vein which acts as a kind of glue. The goal is to make the walls of the varicose veins ‘stick’ together and thus make the varicose veins disappear.
This is followed by compression: you have to wear fairly tight compression stockings for three to five days to close the veins so that the walls can stick. These compression stockings should not be taken off and should absolutely not get wet.
Sclerocompression therapy is outpatient and virtually painless. Many people experience the compression stockings more annoying than the treatment itself.
