If you’re bothered by how veins on your legs or face look or feel, sclerotherapy for spider and varicose vein treatment is to consider. In a relatively quick outpatient procedure, your doctor injects a solution into the vein that makes it clot, redirecting blood to healthier veins. Over a few weeks (or months, for varicose veins), treated veins get reabsorbed into your tissue and fade.
Sclerotherapy effectively treats spider veins and sometimes very small varicose. It’s often considered the “gold standard” in treating spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure in which a liquid or foam substance is injected into spider, reticular, or small varicose veins causing it to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed by the body and eventually fades.
Refrain from High Activity Sports or Workouts for 2-3 Days. Compression hose need to be worn for a few days for best results.
