Video Overview

How long do most sclerotherapy procedures take? Our sclerotherapy sessions vary in length from 10 minutes to 40 minutes depending on whether we are treating mid-sized veins, which we usually treat with ultrasound guidance, versus telangiectatic surface veins, which we treat with lower concentrations and we require special head gear. These cosmetic sclerotherapy sessions take quite a bit longer than the ultrasound sclerotherapy sessions.
