Sclerotherapy

Additional Information

SCLEROTHERAPY

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat unsightly spider veins and varicose veins. The target veins are injected with a chemical solution which causes the interior of the vessel to swell, become irritated, close off, and eventually disappear. Sclerotherapy is also useful for treating deeper veins that are further away from the surface of the skin.

Sometimes a more invasive laser procedure is required, but this will be reviewed at your consultation. What should you be looking for in a provider of sclerotherapy? A steady hand and a sharp eye.

With as few as 1-2 treatments nearly 80% of spider veins can be eradicated. Treatments last anywhere from one half to one hour depending on how many vessels need to be treated.
