Varicose & Spider Veins

We implement the best treatment for eliminating large spider veins and smaller varicose leg veins.


Sclerotherapy

Injecting the unwanted veins with a sclerosing solution causes the target vein to immediately shrink, and then dissolve over a period of weeks as the body naturally absorbs the treated vein.

Sclerotherapy is the “gold standard” and is preferred over laser for eliminating large spider veins and smaller varicose leg veins. 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.

What’s next?

Multiple injections of dilute sclerosant are injected into the abnormal surface veins of the involved leg. Patients are also encouraged to walk regularly during that time. The number of varicose veins injected in one session is variable, depending on the size and location of the veins, and the patient’s overall medical condition. It is common practice for the patient to require at least two treatment sessions separated by several weeks to significantly improve the appearance of their leg veins.
