Spider Vein Removal - Schlerotherapy
Schlerotherapy is the most common treatment for spider and varicose veins on the legs. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar and collapse, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. After sclerotherapy, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks and so please expect to perform this treatment a few weeks before a big event.
- You may need one to several sclerotherapy sessions for any vein region and the number of injections varies per session. Generally, normal activities can be resumed after sclerotherapy.
