Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot.

Treatment

Sclerotherapy is an in-office procedure performed on smaller surface veins. A chemical injection irritates the walls of the veins, causing them to thicken and close over time. Each sclerotherapy session builds upon the results of the previous session. Most patients undergo 2 to 3 sclerotherapy sessions spaced 1 month apart in order to obtain optimum results.
