Spider Vein Therapy

Sclerotherapy is a treatment of spider veins, occasionally varicose veins used for more than 150 years. A medicine is injected into the vessels, which makes them shrink. Sclerotherapy is the “gold standard” and is preferred over laser therapy. Unlike a laser, the sclerosing solution additionally closes the “feeder veins” under the skin that are causing the spider veins to form, thereby making a recurrence of the spider veins in the treated area less likely. It’s requires multiple injections of solution into the abnormal surface veins of the involved leg. The patient’s leg is then compressed with either stockings or bandages that they wear usually for one week after procedure. Patients are also encouraged to walk regularly during that time. It is common practice for the patients to require at least two to three treatment sessions separated by several weeks to significantly improve the appearance of their leg veins.
