The procedure does not usually require anesthesia or any special preparation. During the treatment, the person lies on their back with their legs up. A doctor cleans the area, then inserts a small needle into the vein. The doctor injects the vein with an irritating solution.
When the injection is complete, the doctor will massage the area to prevent blood from re-entering the vein. The individual may need to wear a pad or compression stockings in the area.
Some people experience tenderness or bruising at the site of the injection, but recovery is otherwise relatively easy.
