What is Sclerotherapy of Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment used to treat varicose and spider veins. The procedure involves the injection of a solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to shrink and eventually disappear.

What are some common uses of the procedure?

Sclerotherapy is used to improve the cosmetic appearance of spider veins and to relieve some of the symptoms associated with spider veins, including aching, burning, swelling and night cramps. It is the primary treatment for small varicose veins in the legs.

How does the procedure work?

A very fine needle is injected is injected directly into the spider or varicose veins, the sclerosing solution irritates the lining of vein, which causes it to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. The number of veins treated in one session varies.

What will I experience during and after the procedure?
