Spider Vein Treatment (Sclerotherapy)
Spider veins are small clusters of thin red, purple or blue veins that appear on different parts of thighs, legs and ankles. A number of different factors can lead to appearance of these veins such as hormonal changes, pregnancy, weight gain, prolonged standing at work.
One of the main methods of treatment is injecting these vessels with a scarring agent. The injection is painless with a very small needle. When the scar forms inside the vessels, there won’t be a blood flow and the vessels collapse. Collapsed vessels will be absorbed over time.
Most patients require a few treatments as some vessels tend to open up again or your body forms collateral vessels. With good compliance and in experienced hands, patients will see remarkable improvement after a few sessions.
