Should my legs look worse after Sclerotherapy?
I had 6 treatments of sclerotherappy one week apart. Much of the treatments were injecting "feeders". It's been over 2 months since my first treatment and my veins look worse. I have new quite dark veins that have popped up. What happened?

It can be normal for veins to look worse following a Sclerotherapy treatment. Often times patients will have trapped blood in the treated veins following Sclerotherapy. You may notice hard, tender, darkened areas as a result of injections. This can take months to resolve. There are some things that can be done to help accelerate the healing process. The areas of trapped blood can be drained by your physician through a small needle puncture. Also using a heating pad on areas of trapped blood can be helpful.
