How Does Polidocanol Work?

Polidocanol belongs to a class of medications known as "sclerosing agents." It works by damaging the endothelium, the inside lining of blood vessels. This causes blood platelets to attach to the lining of the vessels; eventually, cellular debris and platelets cause the blood vessel to clot and be replaced by scar tissue. The vein will gradually fade over time.
