Q&A: How Much Sodium Tetradecyl is Safe?



Q: How much sodium tetradecyl sulfate in the body is safe? I have numerous visible blue veins on chest, arms, hips and legs. My sclerotherapist said these can all be injected with sclerosant in one day. Is it safe to have that much slerosant in my body at once? Also, I am battling thinning hair. Could that make it worse?

A: It depends on the concentration your practitioner is using, but generally, we don’t go over 10 cc’s per session. That sounds like a lot to cover in one session, but it depends on how densely populated the areas appear.
