Sclerotherapy

While spider veins are primarily a cosmetic concern – they’re mild and no specific health hazard is associated with them – when varicose veins occur on the legs, they’re known to contribute to a dull, aching pain that accompanies prolonged standing. Sclerotherapy works by injecting a varicose or spider vein with a solution that dries out the walls of the blood vessel and shrinks them up to the point of closing the vessel off. Over the course of a single sclerotherapy session, many veins may be treated, though multiple sessions (generaly scheduled one month apart) may be necessary to treat all the veins in a given patient.
