Are there any side effects from Sclerotherapy?

Nearly all (95%) of patients experience no adverse reactions to Sclerotherapy, but some minor side effects have been reported. These include slight blistering when small amounts of the saline solution seep into the surrounding skin. This blistering heals quickly but may result in a small freckle-like pigmentation at the injection site. These spots usually resolve with time or may be treated with bleaching agents. Bruising will occasionally occur when the veins are unusually weak but should disappear in several weeks. Sometimes a clot develops at the injection site. This is not a major cause for concern, but removal of the clot within 2 weeks will allow the healing process to progress normally. Swelling may occur in patients who stand or sit for long periods of time. Although not dangerous, the swelling should be treated with elevation of the legs and/or compresses.
