What is ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy?

Ultrasound-guided foam therapy is a treatment modality available for dilated and leaky veins. This treatment uses foamed sclerosing medication injected into the vein using ultrasound guidance.

Foam sclerosant looks quite similar to shaving cream, it can re-liquefy within minutes. Once the foam sclerosant is injected into the vein, it then displaces any of the blood in the vein and stays inside the lining of the vein’s vessel longer than non-foam sclerosants. This treatment is effective for closing off small to medium-sized varicose veins or torturous veins that cannot be treated with a catheter.

Once the ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy has been completed, the veins are absorbed into the body and will disappear over time. A compression bandage will be provided and will be placed directly over where the treatment occurred to ensure optimal results.

We recommend continuous wear of compression stockings/socks/bandages for at least three weeks following ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy.

What can I expect after foam sclerotherapy?

All of our patients get up after the treatment and walk out of the office. We encourage each patient to continue walking once they are home.

Sclerotherapy for varicose veins requires minimal after-care, patients can return immediately to most of their daily activities. We advise that you avoid any exercise for 7 days after your procedure. It is also very important to keep your legs out of the sun.
