Sclerotherapy is a treatment for removal unsightly spider veins and reticular veins. These are tiny red and blue little blood vessels on the legs. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed through injections. The procedure utilizes a solution that reduces the appearance of the spider veins. The procedure takes a matter or minutes depending on the amount of spider veins to be treated.
Typically two to three treatments are needed to create desired results and those treatments are generally scheduled about a month apart. The sclerotherapy treatment is virtually painless and after the procedure patients will need to wear compression stockings 12 hours a day for up to two weeks.
