In all circumstances, it is used in conjunction with other modalities of treatment, it is never done in isolation.
Sclerotherapy is the treatment of small unwanted veins - usually small red/purple veins, predominantly in the lower limbs by injecting with a needle a chemical/sclerosant directly into the vein. It is part of treatment options for patients with venous incompetencies (varicose veins) depending on the severity of the condition.
