What are the Common Side Effects of Vein Treatment?

Varicose veins, spider veins, and other vein disorders affect millions of Americans every day. Whether for cosmetic or medical reasons, many people receive vein treatment with positive results. Some procedures are performed to dissolve veins, causing them to disappear. Other treatments can relieve symptoms such as pain, swelling or even bleeding caused by large, bulging veins.

Common Side Effects of Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a vein treatment procedure performed primarily for spider veins and smaller varicose veins. It involves injecting medicine directly into the vein, which is eventually absorbed by the body. Some of the following temporary side effects may occur at the site of the injection but are no cause for concern.

  • Bruising
  • Raised red areas
  • Small skin sores
  • Darkened skin that appears as lines or spots
  • The appearance of tiny red blood vessels
