I have an unsightly median cubital vein that has been damaged from an IV during two surgeries. Is it ok to do sclerotheropy on that vein?

I do not want to completely shut the vein down, just enough to get it to look like normal again. Is this something you have done? It has really been bothering me lately, especially when I am hot and it swells more.

Please have an evaluation by a vascular surgeon of the vessel in question before you consider sclerotherapy.
