Over 50% of women over 20 years of age suffer from unwanted veins and 80% of these unwanted veins are cosmetic in nature and pose no immediate medical threat. In today’s world these visible veins give the impression of either poor health or aging when in fact we can effectively and safely eliminate these veins. High patient demand for these services allow for physicians to add these new cash basis services to their practice without a large capital investment. Patients will find these procedures rewarding as well but many do not understand the efficacy and safety associated with these newer treatments. Aesthetic lasers may also be another viable option for your practice due to the simple manner in treating telangectasias and reticular veins in facial and leg areas.  

Our Hands-On Sclerotherapy Training course offers a comprehensive education of this beneficial treatment to physicians and nurses. Through this course, you will discover the entire sclerotherapy procedure, which includes viable injection techniques, standard of care, and proper patient evaluations. Sclerotherapy has been proven to be advantageous to medical practices, not just financially for the practice, itself, but by delivering an exemplary success rate among patients. Our Sclerotherapy Training workshop will provide you with the necessary resources to make the integration process possible. As part of the sclerotherapy class you will receive additional sclerotherapy educational resources containing illustrative techniques and written protocols.

The benefit to the physician for offering sclerotherapy is that it remains one of the most in-demand cash basis procedure which you can easily incorporate into your practice. The price for the procedure is $300.00 per (30) minute session and the cost of medicine is minimal (+/- $15). The typical sclerotherapy patient will require 1-3 sessions and will need to maintain these results thereafter. Physicians may also delegate these procedures to mid-level practitioners as another way of taking a cost center and creating a revenue center within the practice. On average, a normal medical practice should realize anywhere from $45 – $75k+ per year in profits from offering this procedure.  

Modern sclerotherapy agents have replaced the traditional hypertonic saline injections. These modern agents if used correctly no longer run the risk of staining, matting, or necrosis of tissue. We train you in the latest sclerotherapy agents including STS (Sotradecal), POL (Asclera), and the use of chromated glycerin (72%). Our Sclerotherapy Training includes all forms and consents, ACP standard of care guidelines, and hands-on training for the elimination of reticular and spider veins.
