Spider Vein Treatment

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a solution into each affected vein, causing the vein to collapse and fade.

What are spider veins?

In some women, spider veins – those small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles – become noticeable at a young age. For others, the veins may not become obvious until much later.

A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including:

  • Heredity
  • Hormonal shifts
  • Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing
  • Pregnancy
  • Weight fluctuation

There are effective, safe and relatively painless methods available for reducing spider veins.
