Sclerotherapy is an in-office, minimally invasive procedure in which abnormal small and large spider veins are injected with a solution that causes them to swell, collapse and fade away over time. The abnormal vein closes down and is absorbed into your body.
Sclerotherapy is relatively painless and can be performed in under an hour. No pain medication or surgery is required. The number of treatments needed varies based on the severity of the problem. There are very few side effects, and you can usually resume regular activities immediately following treatment.
Sclerotherapy is quite effective in eliminating most visible spider veins. This procedure is not covered by most insurance plans, but is an affordable treatment for many people.
