During sclerotherapy, we use fine needles to inject unwanted veins with special solutions that cause the veins to swell and close.
As a result, varicose veins, spider veins, and other vascular lesions become lighter in color and less noticeable, with the body safely rerouting blood flow to other healthy vessels. In many cases the unsightly veins completely disappear.
Our sclerotherapy can provide dramatic and long-lasting results. You may be able to fully resume your normal activities two hours after treatment, with no restrictions.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
