Q&A — How Do I Know If Sclerotherapy Worked?

Q: I had sclerotherapy in a vein on my calf 3 days ago. I thought the vein was supposed to look worse or that I should have some inflammation, but things have not changed much, except for a tiny dark spot. Does this mean the sclerotherapy did not work?

A: No. Be patient. Visible results can take 6-8 weeks.
