Sclerotherapy

What is Sclerotherapy

This is a medical procedure to treat spider veins and small varicose veins on the legs.  A solution (typically a concentrated salt water) is injected into the vein and causes irritation to the lining of the vessel. This causes the walls of the vessel to stick together and permanently close the vessel off, in turn, shunting the blood flow back into the deeper vessels. 

Who is Sclerotherapy for

Sclerotherapy is for anyone who has spider or vericose veins that are unwanted on the legs. It is best to consult with your physician if you are a candidate for sclerotherapy.

Where is Sclerotherapy applied

An injection is inserted into the veins on the legs.

Why
