Bye-bye spider veins! Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective way to reduce or eliminate spider veins, mostly located on your legs.
With the Sclerotherapy procedure, your medical practitioner will inject your veins with a sclerosing solution that will make them collapse and fade from sight. This may also help relieve symptoms associated with spider veins, like aching, burning, swelling and night cramps. This procedure results in no downtime, little to no pain, and you can return to your daily activities shortly.

How is Sclerotherapy injected?
Sclerotherapy is injected into the spider vein using a small needle. The agent causes the blood in the veins to displace, and then collapse and disappears over time.
