Sclerotherapy is typically priced per timed session. Sessions can last from 15 to 30 minutes, with each session costing between $200 and $500. The average surgeon's fee in the U.S. in 2010 was $354. During a single session, anywhere from 10 to 40 veins can be treated.
If you're lucky, your varicose or spider veins will be interconnected, meaning that injecting one will cause many of them to collapse. If not, you may need to return for follow-up sessions.
Because the cost of sclerotherapy treatment depends on the number of sessions, the overall cost varies widely depending on the severity of the spider or varicose veins. A small area with just a few veins may cost as little as $200; whole legs can cost as much as $2,500.
There is typically no discount for multiple sclerotherapy sessions.
How to get sclerotherapy: The procedure is performed in a doctor's office. 24 hours before sclerotherapy, don't shave or apply lotion to your legs. (That is, if you are having leg veins treated. Otherwise it's A-OK.) On treatment day, patients should plan to wear shorts or a short skirt for the treatment if leg veins are affected.
