Q: How much sodium tetradecyl sulfate in the body is safe? I have numerous visible blue veins on chest, arms, hips and legs. My sclerotherapist said these can all be injected with sclerosant in one day. Is it safe to have that much slerosant in my body at once? Also, I am battling thinning hair. Could that make it worse?
A: Opinions vary about the safe amount. It is pretty harmless though and if using very dilute strengths fairly large volumes can safely be given. I doubt it has anything to do with the hair loss.
