Sclerotherapy in Chicago, IL

FreshSkin offers sclerotherapy to the residents of Chicago, Evanston and the surrounding communities in Illinois.

Condition It Treats

Sclerotherapy is commonly used to address varicose veins.

How It Works

This technique has been around for over 150 years. In the case of varicose veins, it involves using a very small needle to inject a carefully selected solution into the unwanted vein. A small cotton ball is then secured over the injection site with tape. The chemical agent causes the vein wall to become damaged, irritated and “sticky.” This results in trauma to the area, and then a healing response. When compression is applied, the vein walls heal closed and eventually are removed by the body’s healing mechanisms.

What to Expect

You will be asked to leave the compression dressings on for two hours, as this helps the vein walls to adhere to one another. Sclerotherapy can remove up to 90% of visible veins, with the remainder being treated with BBL®.

While the visible veins can be treated, it’s important to recognize that the underlying issues that caused these veins to appear cannot be eliminated. This means that re-treatment—at various intervals determined by the FreshSkin team—will be necessary.

Dr. Tenore and her staff at FreshSkin provide personalized care to residents of Chicago, Evanston and the surrounding communities in Illinois with state-of-the-art technology for optimal health, aesthetics, and patient satisfaction.
