Foam Sclerotherapy Patient #8

This 49 year old patient was treated with U/S-guided Foam Sclerotherapy for multiple smaller varicosities affecting the right anteromedial leg. She was injected into 2 separate points of entry one proximal and one distal over the small varicosity one along the anterior upper shin and one just over the knee which were each cannulated. The procedure was performed by Dana de Boer who is a Registered Phlebologist Nurse Practitioner here at The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic. The after photos you see were taken less than a month after initial treatment.

Over 80% of patients will have no trace of staining after Foam Sclerotherapy at the one-year-post-treatment mark. In fact, we have had patients who two weeks after treatment have no staining what so ever. Whether or not staining occurs really depends on a few factors. One factor being skin pigment, another factor of staining is the proper and diligent use of stockings after the Foam Sclerotherapy Treatment. Last but not least proper follow through of the given post care instructions is another way to avoid staining.

Foam Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat blood vessels or blood vessel malformations (vascular malformations) and also those of the lymphatic system. A medicine is injected into the vessels, which makes them shrink. It is used for children and young adults with vascular or lymphatic malformations. In adults, sclerotherapy is often used to treat spider veins, smaller varicose veins.Foam Sclerotherapy is one method, along with surgery, radiofrequency and laser ablation, for treatment of spider veins, occasionally varicose veins, and venous malformations. In ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy,ultrasound is used to visualize the underlying vein so the physician can deliver and monitor the injection. Foam Sclerotherapy is often done under ultrasound guidance after venous abnormalities have been diagnosed with duplex ultrasound.
