Success rates of sclerotherapy are poor and are around 20-30%. I have yet to do one that was successful for more than a few months and have stopped doing the sclerotherapy. If you really want it removed, surgery is the only answer and it is a very simple procedure that you should recover from wishing a week or so Hope this helps.
