There are many classes of sclerotherapy solutions, and it would take 2 pages to answer your question. There are different classes of sclerosants: detergent class, hypertonic saline, etc. This is why you go for a consultation and pay for a consultation, for your vein specialist to discuss the options of treatment along with the benefits and side effects of each product--whether they are FDA approved or not, risks, allergic reaction potential, likelihood for hyperpigmentation, etc.
Seek an ABVLM-certified vein specialist.
