Spider Vein Treatment

Sclerotherapy

The most common spider vein treatment involves the injection of a solution into each affected vein, causing the vein to collapse and fade over time.

How should I prepare for spider vein treatment?

In preparing for spider vein treatment, you may be asked to:

  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
  • Stop smoking
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications

Spider vein treatment requires no anesthesia and is usually performed in an outpatient setting. More than one treatment session may be required to obtain optimal results.
