Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure used to reduce the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins. It is an injection of a solution into the vein to cause it to get irritated and turn into a tiny scar that is invisible and cannot carry blood.
Sclerotherapy is the best way to treat most leg veins. However, the smallest thinnest veins may be too small to treat with Sclerotherapy. The only method to treat these little veins is with laser. Individual results may vary depending on vein severity and skin tone.
No matter what technique is used, it is important for the physician to treat underlying varicose and reticular veins before sclerotherapy or laser therapy.
One of our providers will be able to discuss during the consultation how many sessions and which treatment would be recommended for your individual assessment.
