Sclerotherapy is the medical term given to the treatment and removal of spider and varicose veins. These veins, which often appear dark and/or raised, can have a significant impact on self-esteem. Sclerotherapy is a safe, effective way to get rid of these veins so you can look younger and feel better.
The procedure involves injecting a special solution directly into the spider or varicose vein. Over a period of a couple weeks – or even up to a month – the solution will slowly break down the vein, and your body will gradually reabsorb it. Some people need only one or two sclerotherapy treatments in order to achieve the desired results, but others require several treatments. This depends on the number of veins being treated, the severity of their appearance, and each individual’s reaction to the treatments.
