Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS) is a highly effective, minimally-invasive treatment for varicose veins.  Using ultrasound for accuracy, a sclerosant solution is injected into the diseased veins, causing them to close and be absorbed by the body.

Unlike other treatment options, you are likely to need more than one session of sclerotherapy to achieve closure of the troubling varicose vein. In general most people will require two to three sessions of sclerotherapy for a good result. During this time lots of walking is required in addition to compression stockings being warn.
